Restaurant On The Park
We Are Now Open
We have been working everyday since we
re-opened the garden centre to prepare for this day. Whist the government has relaxed the 2 meter rule we are trying maintain this spacing and we have introduced screens between tables to help keep distance from others
We Are Now Open
We’re so happy to be welcoming you back to the restaurant at Mere park and we can’t wait to see you.
Things though will be slightly different to how it was before, and with the safety of our customers and staff we now have a completely new layout and a new menu. Whilst the government has now relaxed the 2 meter rule we have your interests at the centre of everything we do and we will maintain the 2 meter rule where possible. We have reduced our capacity by 45% to enable us to safely space out all our tables to accommodate this and we have added in decorative dividers around the tables so no 2 tables are next to each other….don’t worry you’re not going to be surrounded in plastic panels-You’ll probably feel more like you’re in a rainforest!
We have added and fabulous new seating area outside which is fully covered and heated (we think you may be impressed) so no matter what the weather is doing you can eat outside anytime.
We have also changed the menu, – now offering a more wholesome choice, and incorporating more fresh produce from our new food hall. This will also help us out in the kitchens to enable social distancing.
While we have been closed for over 3 months the kitchens and restaurant have had a full deep clean – it’s almost like new! We have also disposed of all our food in stock from before the lockdown – so you can be sure what you are eating is fresh.
When you visit us we will need to take some details from at least one person in your party to comply with the NHS track and trace guidelines, so if there is ever an outbreak we will be able to contact everyone who has visited us, If you don't want to give us your details that is fine but you won't be allow to use the restaurant.
We are suggesting if you sign up to our loyalty scheme (if you don’t already have one) and use the card as you purchase, this way if you use your card you won’t have to give us your details to us on every visit. We will only require your name and contact number, unless you want to receive promotional emails then we would need that address too.
There will be hand gel stations at the entrance to the restaurant so if you could make sure you use it as you enter.
Please find a table first and then if we can ask that just one person orders for the whole table where possible, this will help maintain a smaller queue.
There will be a separate entrance and exit so please make a note of the signs around you.
We highly advise you call us and book a table 01952 813500
Once tables are full there will be a wait until a suitable one becomes free.
All tables/menus will be cleaned and sanitised between customers and cutlery and condiments will be brought out to you
Please be patient as we are all working under new conditions and with limited staff
