We have taken reasonable steps to maintain a safe distance in the workplace in line with current guidelines & where staff & guests cannot maintain social distance we have done everything we can to minimise the risk.

Upon entering our restaurants we will kindly ask our guests to:

Sanitise hands with provided hand sanitisers, to confirm that they are not experiencing any COVID symptoms. We will take the liberty to check our guest’s temperature. If we notice a high temperature it may result in the reservation being cancelled with our reception team to follow up the next day to reschedule. If guests would like us to hang their coats for them, they will be taken to the cloakroom.

  • Our dining table tops and bases will be sanitized each service, before guests arrive and after they have left. We will no longer be using tablecloths or table skirts in the dining room.
