  • Seating & capacity - have you completed your risk assessment; table numbers max 6 (from x 2 households);

  • Social distancing layouts to comply with 2m, especially queueing

  • Track & Trace – capturing customers information must be compliant with GDPR and dedicated staff to support; as well as securely storing the information and never left unattended

  • Compliance with face masks for guests when not at tables (unless excempt).

  • Hygiene - ensure you have all sanitisers in place and available at entrances and exits, as well as wrapped cutlery/napkins and condiment portions available.

Our delivery drivers and sales reps will be complying with our hygiene and social distancing regulations too! We're all still in it together.
