Social Distancing

Social distancing

We are looking forward to welcoming you back to Ireby Green from Thursday 23rd July 2020. We have had to make quite a few changes to ensure the safety of everyone and would ask you to please respect the social distancing guideline.

The cafe will now be open from 10.00 am - 3.30 pm.

We will be asking customers sanitise your hands and to wait at the door for us to take you to your table. We have had to reduce the number of tables in the café and we will guide you through the new ordering process.

Due to staffing restrictions we will be operating a reduced menu and will endeavour to include as many as the old favourites as possible.

Indoor gatherings should be in groups of up to two households.

Outdoor gatherings of 6 people or less can be from any number of households. If your outdoor gathering is of 7 people or more then all should be from no more than two households


We want to reassure you that there’s even regular cleaning; all our staff will be washing their hands every twenty minutes and sanitising ‘touch points’ every half an hour. The tables and chairs will be cleaned after each customer. At every step, we’ll be following the highest of cleaning standards throughout.

We’ll do our upmost to keep a safe distance where possible when taking orders and serving your table.

You’ll notice some changes to the way we’re laying the tables. To reduce the ‘contact’ with cutlery, we’re placing the knives, forks, and napkins in tankards and placing them on your table. The same goes for the salt and peppers, which will be cleaned after every use.

Toilets will be regularly cleaned and only one person will be permitted in at any one time.

Government Test and Trace Scheme

We will ask for contact details from a member of each party as per the Government steer to collect information to ‘Test and trace’ if needed.

We also respectfully ask that you don’t move tables around, they have been positioned with thought.

If you are feeling at all unwell, please save your visit for another day.

If you have any particular concerns or queries please call us on 015242 41203.

We look forward to welcoming you back soon.

Take care

John & Sylvia
