Our Covid 19 measures

During these difficult times, we are taking steps to ensure dining at The Black Rat is as safe as possible for all customers and staff members.

As such we have put in place these extra procedures-

-All staff will have their temperature taken upon arrival to try and ensure all team members are covid free.

-We will only be using every other table inside the restaurant, ensuring 2 meters distance between all tables.

-All tables will have their own personal hand sanitiser, as well as a station at the restaurant entrance, to be used on arrival, and extra stations throughout the building.

-All tables will be for an absolute maximum of 4 guests, and used only once per service.

-We have limited bookings to 4 persons every half hour, to minimise congestion upon arrival.

-We have made out tasting menu unavailable to reduce the number of visits to your table.

-Staff have been fully trained and will sanitise their hands every 20 minutes, and toilets and waiter stations will be cleaned at more regular intervals.

We hope these measures help make everybody feel safe during their dining experience.

Please be aware we will also be reducing staff levels to a minimum, to make for a safer environment. With this in mind, we still aim to offer the same high standards and dining experience that you have come to expect of us, but ask that customers take this into account in terms of service provided during shift.

You may also find staff visiting your table less often to reduce contact but we still aim to make ourselves very available if needed.
