ALLOCATION OF DINING ROOMS
3. Rules reserves the right to change the allocation of the dining room without payment of compensation. There are two private dining rooms seating from 8 to 18. Each has its own full bar (measures are 50 millilitres (large measures) unless otherwise stated). A bar price list is available. Unfortunately, Rules does not have the facility to operate a cash bar. Lunch parties must vacate the room by 4.30pm. Dinner parties may arrive from 6.00pm.
SUBSTITUTIONS AND EXTRA COURSES
4. It is possible to change dishes from one menu to another or extend the menu by adding an extra course, such as a fish dish, although it may affect the quoted prices. The chosen menu must be the same for all the guests, however, vegetarian, vegan and other dietary requirements can be accommodated. You must give at least 72 hours’ notice of the actual numbers of your party attending on the day (if this differs from the numbers specified in your booking) as this will be the numbers you will be charged for.
