Restaurant Booking Policy

 

For all bookings at 6.30pm or earlier, your table will be available to you for a maximum of 2 hours. If you wish to have the table for the entire evening, then you will need to book your table at 7.00pm or later.

For bookings between 6 and 14 people

For reservations of 6 people and above we require a £5.00 per person deposit to be paid at the time of booking, in order to secure your date. If a deposit isn’t paid at the time of booking, the booking is only provisional and will be held for a maximum of 48 hours and then automatically cancelled if no deposit is received.

For groups of 12 people or more, you will be required to order from a set menu. A pre-order from this menu will be required at least 1 week prior to your booking. The whole party must order from the same menu if there is a selection available. The largest table we can provide without hiring a side of the restaurant is for 14 people.

If your numbers reduce or you cancel more than 48hrs prior to the booking, and you inform the restaurant, the full deposit will still be applied to your bill or refunded, if your numbers reduce or you cancel less than 48 hours prior to your booking, no refund will be given (unless we are able to resell your table).

The largest group we accept on a Friday or Saturday evening is for 10 people.

Arrival

We request that your entire group arrive prompt at the time of your booking as we arrange all other bookings around any large group and lateness will only put extra pressure on the kitchen and may result in slow service, which we want to avoid.

 

Cake Policy

At IMK we do not encourage people to bring their own food into our establishment, as we are in the business of providing delicious food for you, the customer, to enjoy, and therefore operate a no cake policy. If you are celebrating a special day, we can provide a cake for you at a reasonable charge with at least 48 hours notice, or we can organise a ‘Happy Birthday’ plate if a dessert is purchased, and of course a candle or two.

 

Billing

At the end of your meal, you will be presented with one bill to cover the whole of your group. If each person wishes to pay individually, we request that this is organised by the party leader.

For bookings of 15 or more

You will be required to hire a ‘side’ of the restaurant and pay a £10 per person deposit at the time of booking, in order to secure your date. If a deposit isn’t paid at the time of booking, the booking is only provisional and will be held for a maximum of 48 hours and then automatically cancelled if no deposit is received.

You will be required to order from a 3 course set menu.

The smaller side holds between 15 and 18 people (you will be required to pay for a minimum of 15 adults). The larger side hold between 26 and 30 (you will be required to pay for a minimum of 26 adults). 

A pre-order and full payment for the food will be required at least 1 week prior to your booking. Failure in doing so could result in your booking being cancelled.

If you cancel your booking more than 1 week prior to your booked date, a full refund will be issued. If you cancel less than a week to your booked date, no refund will be issued, unless we are able to resell the tables.

If your numbers reduce below the minimum requirement, and you inform the restaurant, it is at the restaurants discretion as to whether you will still be charged the for the minimum requirement. We will always do our utmost to accommodate your group elsewhere in the restaurant and make available any tables that become free due to the reduction in numbers, however if this is not possible you will still be charged for the minimum requirement.

 

 

If you wish to book the whole restaurant

You must book for a minimum of 46 people and pay a £10 per person deposit at the time of booking, in order to secure your date. If a deposit isn’t paid at the time of booking, the booking is only provisional and will be held for a maximum of 48 hours and then automatically cancelled if no deposit is received.

You will be required to order from a 3 course set menu.

 If you wish to book the whole restaurant but for less than 46 people, a booking fee will apply.

A pre-order and full payment for the food will be required at least 2 weeks before your booking. Failure in doing so could result in your booking being cancelled.

If you cancel your booking more than 2 week prior to your booked date, a full refund will be issued. If you cancel less than 2 week to your booked date, no refund will be issued, unless we are able to resell the tables.

If your numbers reduce below the minimum requirement, and you inform the restaurant, it is at the restaurants discretion as to whether you will still be charged the for the minimum requirement. We will always do our utmost to accommodate your group elsewhere in the restaurant and make available any tables that become free due to the reduction in numbers, however if this is not possible you will still be charged for the minimum requirement.
