Important opening information

Bookings (indoors and out) are limited to a maximum party size of 6 people or 2 households. Indoor tables are now restricted to 1 household or support bubble, no mixed households. Bookings are recommended. 

As you can imagine, things are a little different. We'd like to take this opportunity to ask for your patience and co-operation as new procedures outlined by the Government, are as new to us as they are to you.  To maintain social distancing, we have had to reduce covers inside the tea room by almost 40%, therefore bookings are advisable especially at peak times. We will be operating with a slightly reduced menu, but also lots of tea room favourites. 

We have followed Government guidelines to make our tea room  as safe as possible for all of our customers and staff, we have put the following measures in place:

*We have put in sanitiser points at each doorway and an additional one in the bathroom lobby. Please ensure you use these during your visit.

*All staff will be required to wear a face covering

*Staff will be required to have a negative lateral flow test prior to commencing work twice weekly

*Reduced indoor capacity by 40%

*When good weather allows, open all doors and windows to increase ventilation and encourage use of outdoor seating areas

*Sanitise all furniture / menus / sugar bowls after use

*Increase cleaning schedule for bathroom area and frequent touch points

*All staff to be temperature checked prior to work each day

*All customers entering the building must now wear a face covering unless seated at a table

*It is now law for us to take and keep customers contact details for 21 days, after which the information will be destroyed. This is the case for ALL party members now, not just 1 member of the party. Under 16's are exempt.

Please, please, if you or anyone in your household has any Covid-19 symptoms, do not visit, stay at home.

Anyone not respecting staff or customer safety or Covid guidelines, will be asked to leave
