Welcome to the Signal

Proud to be a hippo

At The Signal we want to be a reflection of the needs of our local community. On any given day there is always a diverse mix of people to be found in The Signal, from mums with their babies to local musicians and artists at the bar. We believe that is what makes The Signal so special.  Our food harks back to the ale taverns of old which revolves open fire cooking from our English charcoal rotisserie and grill to produce a stripped back menu. It relies on us using the best possible ingredients, looking after them well, and cooking them simply and respectfully.


Low or Let Go!

Throughout January & February

Come January some people want to eat more healthily and drink less, other may not… That’s why we are introducing our ‘Low or Let Go’ menus.

There will be dishes that are low calorie, lighter or vegan as well as more indulgent plates which will be showcased through our daily ever-changing specials boards.

The ‘Low or Let Go’ theme will also be reflected through our drinks menus with low calorie or non-alcoholic beverage options alongside the usual menu.

There’s something for everyone!
