Moving Forward

In respect to the government easing of social distancing guidelines, we ask that you still maintain awareness and consideration for other customers and staff that are not yet fully vaccinated.

We will continue to operate full table service and sadly cannot offer any drinking or dining at the bar.

The host station is now located at the entrance where you will be met, this is now a permanent feature please report there to be shown to your table.

We are a smoke and vapour free restaurant therefore there is no smoking or vapouring on the premises.

We politely ask that you arrive promptly for your reservation to reduce any congestion at the entrance.

Face Coverings

Please be respectful to our staff as some of us would prefer to still where face coverings for safety, customers feel free to do the same as your safety is our priority.

Inside Dining

Every table is allocated a strict 2 hour time slot (for tables of 2 this is 1.5 hours).

We will always try our up most to accommodate seating preference,but sadly we can not always commit to this.

We are not able to add highchairs and baby carriers to the end of all tables due to walk ways, table spacing and service, high chairs are available upon request.

Outside Dining

All tables outside are on a first come-first served basis and can not be pre-booked.

We ask that anyone seeking a table outside must go inside to the host stand,
we can then inform you of availability at the time.

Any tables moving outside will fore-fit their table inside, please note that at the busiest times ie ‘Peak Times’, unfortunately tables booked inside will not be able to move outside on request.

Please be advised that if the weather turns inclement, you will not be able to enter the building to shelter.
Unfortunately we have limited umbrella coverage outside and staff may not be able to continue serving your table in the event of poor weather, therefore please bare this in mind.

We are not able to add highchairs and baby carriers to the end of all tables due to walk ways, high chairs are available upon request.

Takeaway Service

We offer our full menu for takeaway during kitchen opening hours, please order by telephone 01704 564564 & payment will be taken at the time of ordering.

When arriving to collect your order please make your presence known to a member of staff and your order will be brought out to you from the kitchen.

QR code/NHS Track and Trace

Please feel free to still check in on your own accord. We will no longer be asking you to fill any extra details in, apart from reservation details upon booking a table.

At Your Table

We have now removed our screens
We still will do our upmost to keep a safe distance where possible when taking your order.
Please keep all personal belongings including coats and handbags within your allocated table space.

Sanitiser Points

We are keeping the 3 sanitiser dispensers points please feel free to use at anytime, these are located on entry, archway through to back of restaurant & the rear of the restaurant before the kitchen.

We understand if you wish to bring your own preferred sanitiser.

Your Young Ones

Please can we ask for your help…
Due to table spacing inside and out, we can not always accommodate all prams / pushchairs, please do bring alternative seating where you can.

Toilets / Cleaning / Sanitation

Sadly we do not have any disabled toilets.

We encourage single use of the staircase at any one given time to ensure distancing. You can use the mirror at the top of the stairs to check for oncoming traffic.

Cleaning of the toilets will be completed every 1 hour and signed off for records.

Please ensure that you use the nearest sanitising point before you go up the stairs to the toilet.

We have wedged open both main toilet doors to reduce ‘touch points’, but may we gently remind all customers to stay alert when entering or leaving the toilet and respect our other customers privacy.

We have implemented additional systems and further staff training to ensure the upmost standards of hygiene are maintained.

Please do not occupy a table if there is a sign in place advising that it has not be fully sanitised.

We have allocated a 15 min interval between table sittings to ensure we have time to fully clean and sanitise the area from the last booking.

This 15 min is vital, please help us by making sure you leave your table promptly.

Payment & Vouchers

We ask that you remain at your table to settle your bill, please do not approach the bar area, this must be kept free at all times for service purposes.

We will be accepting cash and debit / credit cards as normal. The contactless limit is £45.00 per transaction, we also accept Apple Pay and Amex.

To help maintain staff incentives we have added an optional facility to leave a tip via the card machines. We will also welcome cash tips.

All vouchers will still be valid and you are more than welcome to purchase one, please ask a member of our team.

Our aim is that we continue to provide you with the same standard of food, service and atmosphere that we have been proud to offer you in the past.

Kindest regards,

Lorna & all the Villaggio Team
