Currently all scheduled classes are running as normal with our covid secure venue.
We have kept our classes small to allow for safe distancing that complies with tier 2. Our socially distanced classes have each table separated at a safe distance from other tables.
Please wear face masks at all times when at the venue and stay within your social bubble and keep a safe social distance from others not in your bubble.
Antibacterial and hand washing We have an automatic antibacterial hand gel station. All participants must use this upon entry. We have multiple sinks each with their own antibacterial hand wash, for safe hand washing.
It is compulsory for participants to wear facemasks at all times in all the communal areas like wash stations, entryways and toilets.
We operate under hospitality restaurant table service rules, so please keep your mask on at all times apart from when eating at your table.
"Other activities, such as indoor exercise classes and other activity groups can only continue provided that households or support bubbles do not mix. Where it is likely that groups will mix"
"Visiting other venues, including restaurants, pubs and places of worship Venues following COVID-secure guidance can host more people in total, but no one must mix indoors with anyone who they do not live with (or have formed a support bubble with).."
BOOKING Please book for 2 people if at all possible Each table will fit 2 people so you can book for yourself and a companion. (partner, friend, child) If you book for a group of people that are in the same social bubble (max 6), we will put tables together so you can sit with each other.
We are not currently able to accept bookings for just 1 person on their own due to space and cost issues.
If you are planning just to come alone, please consider booking for a companion (partner, friend, child) as well. If you have a voucher already and its only for 1 person, please consider purchasing an additional voucher so that you can come together. Bookings can only be made for a minimum of 2 people until further notice or until a vaccine is found.
The "New Rule of 6" In case you are uncertain about the new rule introduced on Monday 14th September, the Government website has some clarifications and lists some exemptions - among them -
"restaurants and hospitality venues, can still host larger numbers in total but groups of up to 6 must not mix or form larger groups"
All our tables are widely spaced, so you will not need to come near any others during your time with us. All safety guidelines have been adhered to and exceeded. The safety of customers and staff are most important to us and we do not take risks unnecessarily.
The "Rule of 2" Don't worry, this is not a new government rule. This is the rule we added for our cookery school to add extra reassurance and also to clarify.
Single person or Couple If you come alone, you will be sat at your own table away from other people that you don't know. Our tables hold 2 people. So you can come with a friend or partner who is in your social bubble. Ideally please book for 2 people as our classes have partner elements where its best to work with someone.
Family or Bubble If you are in bigger group but all in the same social bubble, then of course you can all sit together. We will arrange tables accordingly for your group. Please remember, your group cannot be larger than 6.
Additional Safety Measures We recommend that you use facemasks at all times apart from when eating at your table, and use our 80% alcohol antibacterial gel on arrival and at any appropriate interval such as after touching door handles. Antibacterial hand wash is always available and numerous widely spaced sinks for handwashing.
Please adhere to socially distanced, and masked handwashing by ensuring there are wide spaces between participants when queuing.
Gift Vouchers If you are purchasing gift vouchers from us, they are already extended to be valid for 2 years from the date of purchase, and the expiry date can also be extended indefinitely until they are used. We appreciate your support in these difficult times for businesses.
