With all sincerity, there is nothing more important to us than keeping everyone in our restaurants safe, whether guest or team member. This was true before corona and is absolutely true now.
Over the past two years, we’ve worked closely with leading safety specialists, and with their guidance, we've created comprehensive safety standards. These have included new roles, policies, processes and equipment, back and front of house, visible and less visible (in some areas, well beyond government guidance) to make sure our restaurants have the highest standards of health and safety.
Although some restrictions have been lifted, we remain dedicated to ensuring the safety (and peace of mind) of our guests and team, and so have kept a number of protective measures in our cafés, and we will continue to monitor and reflect government advice.
