COVID 19 SAFETY

The safety of our guests and our team is a high priority at this time. We are following all NSW Public Health Orders in relation to COVID safe plans & rules regarding vaccinations.

We have limitations related to table spacing and we are adhering to these limits. Guests must be wearing masks to arrive and may remove them when seated and eating and drinking. Staff will be wearing masks. Our restaurant is already set up to allow for social distancing.

Please ensure that you have read and understood these guidelines before you come into our venue. If you have cough, fever, sore throat or shortness of breath, do not enter the venue.  Go home, be safe and get medical advice.

Hand sanitiser is available – please use it. We have good cleaning and hygiene protocols in place, including frequent sanitising of high touch points.  If you have suggestions, let us know.

Every guest must check via the Service NSW App – it requires your name, phone number & email address.

We’ll provide table service.  Your only movements should be to enter and leave, and to use the toilets.  Stay 1.5m away from other guests wherever possible. Payment will be taken at the table.

Let’s keep each other safe as we’re all in this together.
