We are following all government regulations and guidance to keep our guests and team safe.
The East Kent experience may look a little different than before but we are just pleased to be able to welcome you again. We are still delivering our bar menu, Whitstable woodfire pizzas, cocktails and that same welcoming experience.
We want to reassure you that we have put measures into place to keep you and our team safe.
The 6 steps we are taking are:
Carrying out Risk Assessments & Staff Training
Adhering to Government guidelines for physical distancing
Putting in place stringent hygiene measures, including the use of a sanitiser between guests, and public areas regularly
Providing hand sanitiser for staff & guests at every possible opportunity
Minimising contact between staff & guests at every possible opportunity
Guests and staff required to wear face masks in public spaces
We are carrying out these measures in a way that is true to who we are, so whilst the health and safety of our team and guests is our absolute top priority, we still want you to be able to relax in a space that feels familiar.
