We’re thrilled and so excited to be re-opening our doors back open to you all and are working hard to ensure that we provide a safe environment for you to enjoy and relax in.
There will of course be some changes to our day to day operations. Many of these changes are behind the scenes and relate to how we the staff operate, outlined below however are some changes for you, our customer to be aware of;
ENTRANCE to Tea Room and garden seating area will be at the rear, there will be a designated waiting area before we will take you to your seats
EXIT with be via the front door allowing a flow of one way traffic through the Tea Room
HAND WASHING facilities and hand sanitisation points will be available both outside and inside the Tea Room. We kindly ask all customers to sanitise their hand regularly and before entering any common / seating area
TABLE SERVICE will continue, as before we will come to you at your table to take orders and will now also take payments at the table
BOOKING is not essential however is strongly advised to avoid disappointment. Whilst we have extended our garden seating area we have significantly decreased the number of tables inside in order to ensure effective distancing. Please be aware, we may ask you to be a little flexible with the time of your booking as we work to stagger the arrival of different groups.
TAKE AWAY collections will continue from the hatch (please queue to the left of the window and not across the front exit door), shop purchases can still be made from here or you are welcome to come inside should you wish to have a browse (numbers will be limited)
AFTERNOON TEA will still be available as a take away option, or you will of course now be able to book and enjoy this on site with us.
For now we will remain open only three days a week, Thursday, Friday & Saturday 10am – 3:30pm. To book a table please call us on one of our 3 opening days on 01664424008. If you need to contact us outside of opening days please visit our contact us page.
On behalf of myself and the team we kindly ask that you follow our new safety guidelines as well as those issued by the government. Please only visit us in groups of 6 or less, or 2 households. If you live in the extended lock down area, have been feeling unwell, or exposed to someone that displays symptom’s of Covid-19, then of course please postpone your visit to us. We’re working hard to keep you safe, please do the same for us .
Formalities aside, we can’t wait to welcome you back! We know it’s all going to be a bit unusual to start with but we’re all so excited to be seeing you and will be doing our upmost to make you feel comfortable on your visit. We also have a new menu coming into effect that will feature weekly ‘specials’ giving a little more variety, and we’ve tweaked a couple of our regular items too.
Looking forward to seeing you all soon,
Hollie and the Team x
