    Do book ahead

    Hi!
    If you prepare or plan something ahead, you do it some time before a future event so that everything is ready for that event to take place.
    Do book ahead as the restaurant is very popular...

    "Book" (i.e. to reserve or to make a reservation) in that context would be considered a verb and in your example part of a phrasal verb "book ahead".
