We offer table service only.   Our team will set the tables once the guests have arrived but before they are seated.   We have reduced the need for paper menus by introducing QR codes so guests can view our menus on their own device. Disposable paper menus will be available on request.

Our restaurants are always immaculately clean and well maintained. In advance of opening we have ensured that all front of house / back of house areas are deep cleaned and sanitised using antiviral sanitiser.

Guest chairs, tables, card payment machines and other high contact surfaces will be sanitised after each use.

Back of house

Pinch point areas where staff may come together have maximum numbers in place via the scheduling – for example behind bars in reception areas and in offices.   We have assessed third party deliveries and procedures have been put in place to restrict access to the restaurant and back of house areas.   Our food preparation areas have been assessed and maximum numbers of chefs are in place via the scheduling, in order to facilitate social distancing in our kitchens.     Where social distancing cannot be adhered to due for short periods of time to the nature of chefs work, chefs will work side by side or back to back.   Our chefs will use a disposable plastic spoon for tasting which will be thrown away after every use.   Access to changing rooms, walk-in chillers, offices and other small spaces will be restricted to ensure social distancing can be adhered to.   Contractors will be booked to carry out works and repairs at the properties out of hours where possible. If urgent work needs to be carried out during opening hours contractors will be made aware of company hygiene and social distancing procedures.


 All team members will have their temperature checked and recorded at the start of every shift.   Training has been provided for every member of our team. Team members will be instructed to wash their hands frequently with hot water and soap at the beginning, the end, and regularly throughout their shifts for a minimum duration of 20 seconds.   PPE face masks will be worn by all employees both front of house and back of house.    Antibacterial soap and disposable tissue will be supplied at all handwash sinks.   We have conducted training with all of our team on the cleaning procedures required pre, post and during their shifts.   Our team have been fully trained so they understand the risks, routes of transmission and the importance of handwashing, social distancing and cleaning.   Team members will be encouraged not to touch their eyes, nose or mouth with their hands.   Team members will be instructed to keep a 1 metre distance between themselves and other colleagues and guests.   Time and attendance machines will be in use but must be sanitised using an antiviral cleaner after each use.   Team members will be required to bring their uniform to work to change into it upon arrival.
