As well as being able to sell most of our original menu in takeaway form, we’ve also added to the range of offers available in an attempt to give people an Eat Out experience in their own homes.
We are continuing to sell our popular Afternoon Tea boxes but have added a special Valentine’s Day Share Box and a Movie Night Share Box, which will happily feed more than one person and include a range of tasty treats mostly made fresh in our own kitchen (we’ve had to do a lot of taste tests, which as you can imagine has been a real chore…).
Following the recent change in Government advice and the start of a new national lockdown from November 5th 2020. There are a few changes coming, so here they are.
From Monday 2nd November to Wednesday 4th November we will be open from 9am to 3pm with our normal menu, you’ll be able to sit down to eat. Things will be fairly normal.
From Thursday the 5th of November, things get a bit odd (again). We will open from 9:30am to 2:30pm Monday to Friday as a takeaway only. Please note that we will be closed during the weekends until further notice.
There is some good news though.
We’re still open. Just open differently.
We’re still able to offer takeaway afternoon teas (including the Festive afternoon tea) and cream teas.
You’ve got three days this week (at the time of posting) to pop in and get items from the normal menu, sit down with up to 5 other people and make the most of the time before lockdown starts.
While we have tried our best to update everything we can, Our website, Facebook, Trip Advisor pages, some of them do take some time to catch up and some of the information out there might be contradictory for a couple of days. The details above are correct and will be correct until we post an update on this website (and then go through the process of changing everything, everywhere else all over again) – so click the follow button to get up to date information straight away.
Just like the rest of the world we were caught off guard by the severity and the speed at which Covid-19 affected us. Back in March, prior to the Government’s advice being issued, we took the difficult decision to close our doors temporarily until it was safe to reopen.
We are pleased to be able to say that we are now nearly at that point.
From Monday June 1st, we will reopen initially as a takeaway. There will obviously need to be some changes to the way we operate and the menu and services we offer for that to happen. In the main the changes are:
We will restrict access to the building so keep numbers of customers low. There will be floor markings indicating the social distancing requirements.
We will remove most of the furniture (although we appreciate that some customers might need to sit whilst they wait for their order to be prepared).
We would prefer you to pay by card (contactless where possible).
Our menu will be changed in order to provide a good selection of takeaway items.
We will be issuing cutlery, napkins etc rather than them being self-serve as they were before.
Key staff have undergone specific Covid-19 infection control training.
Outside furniture will be distributed to allow for lone or household group eating away from the premises.
We will not commence the opening of our evening hire events for the time being until government advice is given allowing us to do so.
Additionally, the Fort Amherst site will reopen to the public on the same day and is a great space to walk, ride and explore. Regrettably the tunnel tours will not be available, but there is still plenty to enjoy.
