  • Table service only (indoors and outdoors)
  • Track and Trace – all customers (indoors or outdoors) to scan NHS poster or provide you with their contact details
  • Condiments – use single use condiments or sanitise bottles after each customer
  • Hand washing – Staff should wash their hands on arrival at work, once they have changed in to their uniform, and as soon as they enter the kitchen. Then wash hands frequently throughout the day after each change in tasks and EVERY TIME they enter the kitchen.
