NOTE: make use of hand sanitiser before handling.


Reduced Volume:

To reduce the spread of aerosols we will be limiting the volume within the venue and kindly ask that you raise your hand to signal the servers, rather than shout across the venue.


Revised Job Roles:

To avoid any crossover of staff, we will have three designated roles for front of house.  All members of staff will be exercising vigilant hand cleaning.

Waiting staff:

One or two members of staff solely on the floor, taking orders at the table and delivering them. These staff members will have a designated section of the restaurant and will not go behind the bar for any reason.

Manager on shift:

Will be on the floor, greeting and seating customers, pointing them towards the sanitising stations, enforcing social distancing rules, educating customers on what is expected of them and resolving any issues.


Ben, Scott and all the team here would like to offer you our sincerest gratitude for your patronage during these times.

We thank you for acknowledging and adhering to our new policies and we look forward to the day normal service can resume.
