New Restaurant and Bar open
We are very excited to let you know that The Orchard Restaurant and Bar are now operating at the club. Both Harriet and Steven Mitchell bring a wealth of experience and passion in providing their customers with fresh food and drink, and have been successful in running two other sites prior to joining us. Following much member feedback, we believe this will be a fantastic addition to the Club and provide our members with an area of the Club they can relax and enjoy, and feel proud to bring friends and family to join them in their Club. Please read the latest message below from Harriet and Steve below.
The Orchard Restaurant & Bar
The news we have been waiting to hear at The Orchard for a very long time; restrictions on hospitality venues to be lifted from 19th July! We are thrilled!
So what does this mean for you when visiting your club from Monday?
- The Orchard will no longer be operating a one-way system so you can access the club room via any door.
- We will have NHS Track & Trace QR codes up at every door for you to check in should you wish, but this will not be mandatory.
- We no longer have to operate table service, so come in, find a seat & head up to the bar counter when you are ready to order.
- We still will be maintaining exceptional levels of hygiene and will be utilising a simple system on each table, which will show you whether a table has been sanitised or not. That way, you can be sure you are sitting at a table which has been properly cleaned.
- Masks will no longer be mandatory, but you are welcome to wear them, and our staff have been given the choice too.
- There will be no limits on how many people to a table, but we will keep our tables set for a maximum of 6. Should you like to join us as a bigger group, please ring in advance so that we can set up a table for you.
- We are thrilled to be permitted to operate private functions! - If you have been waiting to celebrate with friends & family, then why not pop in and speak to Joy about exclusive hire of the venue on Saturday nights!
- Although restrictions are lifting, we will still do everything we can to ensure our venue remains as safe as it can - our staff will still be lateral flow testing regularly and should they show any symptoms, will not be permitted to work.
Finally, a personal message from all of The Orchard Team to say thank you for your patience & understanding whilst we have been under the current restrictions. It has been a testing time for everyone, and we cannot wait to open up the doors fully and operate in a much more relaxed way, which has always been our intention.
