KEEPING YOU SAFE & COVID SECURE

 

WHAT DOES 'NO MANDATORY RESTRICTIONS' MEAN AT APPLEGARTH?

We want to make the promise of a more normal-feeling world as real as possible for you, while continuing to do all we can to minimise risk and ensure you feel as comfortable as possible while you're with us.

 

When you arrive, you will no longer have to check in, wear masks or have your group size limited by the rule of 6. However, if you'd like to wear a mask please do so, and if you'd like a restaurant table 1m+ from the next please call ahead and we will accommodate you wherever we can.

 

Behind the scenes we will be continuing key measures to ensure our standards remain as high as our customers and team expect them to be, such as social distancing among team members, a minimum of twice-weekly testing, and our enhanced cleaning regime. While we won't make wearing masks mandatory for our team, they will have the option to wear one, and they will all have one at all times in case a customer would feel more comfortable if they wore one. 

 

Please don't hesitate to tell us if you'd rather your server wore a mask, either when booking or at any point while you're with us.

 

We're thrilled that we're moving to a stage where we can give our customers the best possible experience when they visit Applegarth. In particular, to be able to welcome larger groups and help celebrate all those long-postponed occasions in true Applegarth fashion. We're proud of the efforts we've made to keep our customers safe during the Covid pandemic, and we will continue in that vein to ensure everyone can all have the best possible experience at Applegarth.

 

ENHANCED CLEANING PROTOCOLS
