As always, our priority is the safety of our customers and staff. We will be reopening with additional safety and hygiene measures, whilst maintaining a comfortable and relaxed atmosphere for everyone to enjoy.

The following steps have been taken to maximise safety for customers and staff:

  • All customer are asked to follow one way systems and stand on circles on the floor to keep a safe distance from others. An entry and exit system for customers using arrows has been introduced
  • Lifts are for one person or same family or bubble use only
  • Perspex screens have been fitted along the servery. Self-service is not available as staff will be serving customers directly from behind a counter
  • Customers are encouraged to pay cashless
  • Reduced numbers of tables to ensure social distancing between them
  • All contact surfaces to be sanitised at least once an hour
  • Staff will be ensuring a two-metre distance between each other, and where this is not possible additional PPE will be worn. Staff serving food at the tables and clearing tables will be wearing face shields. Staff will only clean tables once the customers have left
  • All customers will have to provide contact details for track and trace purposes. These will be securely stored for 21 days
  • All staff will be wearing disposable gloves when preparing food
  • All cafes have had an individual Covid-19 risk assessment completed and a safe system of working devised
  • All staff have been informed of the risk assessment and received appropriate training to ensure theirs and the customers' safety
  • Counter serving staff will be hand sanitising after each customer
  • There will be automated hand sanitising dispensers as the customers enter the café, which all customers will be encouraged to use.

Our teams at the cafés have really missed everyone and look forward to welcoming back their customers and meeting new ones.
