Fancy Hanks invites you to join us for a session of cocktail creating. Our masterclasses will leave you with new found skills to show off as we take you into our world of mix and muddle

We have private dining spaces for groups of 10 up to 20 – We also welcome larger groups and the exclusive use of our entire venue can be arranged. Give us a call on 01904 655068 or send us an email to and we’ll see if we can make it happen.


We have veggie, vegan and gluten free options. A lot of our dishes can be altered to suit different allergies and intolerances. Check out the menu and be sure to let your server know of any allergens.

Kids are welcome - we have an awesome menu for them and we have highchairs and baby changing facilities too.

Dogs are welcome too - Lots of fresh water available, but we don’t have a special menu for them sorry!

Our building is a bit old and has lots of stairs so is only wheelchair friendly in our front bar. Sadly, the stairs also make our bathrooms inaccessible for wheelchair users.

Fancy Hanks

“We spent our childhood in the Southern States of the USA, and love the food and joie de vivre you find in places like Florida and New Orleans – an unhurried pace of life – and that’s what we want to bring to Fancy Hanks, introducing dishes like slow-cooked gumbo and jambalaya, alongside delicious fried chicken. This is food that makes you smile, it's good mood food.”
