Following the Governments announcement that we can reopen tomorrow 4th July we would like to tell you about all the measures we have put in place to keep our Customers and Staff safe and well.
The Tavistock is a Family Run business and the safety of our customers and team is at the forefront of everything we do. We have made some changes to our business, so we comply fully with all the Governments guidelines for reopening.
Capacity: We have removed some tables from within the restaurant to ensure that all our Customers can always maintain a 1m + distance.
Table service: There is no queuing at the Bar or Carvery, you will be served by our team at your table.
Staff Training: All our team has been trained in our new hygiene procedures and are fully aware of the obligations to keep you safe.
Carvery: The Carvery now has a new system of operation with your meat being carved at the Carvery by our Chef and it will be delivered to your table so there is no need to queue. Fresh vegetables and gGravy will be served directly to your table and if you need more you simply need to ask, and our team will be happy to top you up.
Cleaning & Hygiene: After every sitting each table is sanitised with everything being removed including condiments ready for the next customer. Our team has undergone training using the Government's guidelines and we have amended our hygiene policy to include more frequent hand washing by all team members, sanitisation of tables after each sitting, additional signage, installation of hand sanitisers throughout the building, social distancing measures and the introduction of a new App so customers can order from their table.
Outside space: We have created some outdoor seating for those who would prefer to dine outside.
New Menu: We have a range of delicious new dishes for you to try!
We appreciate that some people may still be nervous about venturing out and we have done everything we can to ensure the safety of our Customers and Team. The last few months have been a difficult time for all of us and as you will appreciate our business has been heavily impacted by the enforced closure. As a local employer we are committed to ensuring that we look after our Customers and Team whilst we navigate our way through these unprecedented times and we want you to know that we are here for you and look forward to welcoming you all back over the coming weeks.
