Welcome Back!

We are pleased to announce that once we are able to re-open, we will be following all the government guidlines apllicable. We would also like to inform you of some of our safety measures so that your visit to us is as safe and as comfortable as possible.

  • You will find hand sanitisers at the entrance and throughout the bistro.
  • We have enhanced all our cleaning regimes, paying extra attention to high touch areas such as light switches, grab rails, door handles and card terminals.
  • Frequent hand washing is extremely important and we have repeated signage throughout as an ongoing reminder to both our customers and colleagues.
  • We have installed booths with screening between most of our tables, ensured seating is back to back where necessary and implemented social distancing markers.  We ask you respect the space of others.
  • As part of the Government’s ‘Track & Trace’ initiative we will need to keep a record of your visit for 21 days.
  • Please note, groups of more than two households should not dine indoors together.
  • To book a table please call the bistro on 01947 600200.

All Government guidelines will be followed whilst still providing a warm and welcoming atmosphere.
