Sir Galahad has spent the past two years being lovingly restored to its full splendour by Lancashire-based Volkeswagon specialist Morecambe & Wize.
“Although he is getting on in years, he’s very young at heart and has the heart and soul of a true knight,” said Minnis’ chef patron chef Jason Freedman, who added, “He loves being on show and would love to be at your party.”
The vehicle can also be used as a photo booth or firm backdrop
