At The Abingdon Restaurant we are following the government guidance and going further to ensure the safety of all of our staff, customers and delivery drivers. We have completed a rigorous risk assessment and will be implementing the following procedures:
We cannot take bookings for over 6 people except if the booking is for a business meeting. Bookings inside are exclusively for parties of the same household or support bubble. In booking a table with us you confirm that you are adhering to these rules
Social Distancing – We have reduced our capacity to ensure all of our tables remain at least 1 metre apart. Our booth seating complies very well with social distancing measures, due to the seat height between tables, separating groups from different households. We have installed further booth seats for this very purpose.
Sanitation – We have installed hand sanitiser bottles at the entrance & different areas throughout the restaurant along with signs encouraging everyone who enters the building to sanitise their hands. We routinely sanitise heavy use surfaces & sanitise all tables, chairs, salt & pepper after use. We are also using single use paper menus.
When possible we are rotering our staff on in teams to ensure they work consistently with the same group & take staff temperatures at the beginning of each shift.
We will be taking details including telephone number & full name from one customer at each table in order to comply with the government’s track & trace. We will not use these details for any other purpose.
We have extended our outdoor seating area & now have tables & chairs on both Abingdon Road & Abingdon Villas.
