COVID secure measures

There’s been a lot of changes to dining since COVID-19 came along and we realise it’s frustrating not being able to do the things that we’d normally do.

We’re priding ourselves on the efforts we’re making to reduce the spread of coronavirus here at Armando’s. We aren’t perfect, we’re learning as we go – as is everyone else, and it has been a challenge to reopen and change our working practices.

Although the vast majority of customers have embraced our new ways of working, there are some points we would like to reiterate and clarify to make your visit a smooth one.

  1. When you visit our restaurant, bar or hotel, you will be temperature checked on entry to the premises to ensure that you don’t have a fever
  2. We will check contact tracing details to make sure our records are accurate
  3. We are operating a reduced capacity, as are all restaurants at the moment. To ensure we can accommodate as many guests as safely as possible, we reserve your table for 2 hours and then have a scheduled cleaning & sanitising slot to prepare for the next sitting. Please arrive on time and order promptly to ensure that your evening is comfortable and not rushed. If you will be late, need more time or cannot make a booking, please let us know in advance where possible so that we can adjust our plan for the evening.
  4. Please remember the rules on who you are allowed to meet with when booking and if you bump into others at our premises – these are not our rules but we are required to ensure that we operate safely and we need your help with this
  5. Please familiarise yourself with our COVID-secure measures on our website prior to visiting and please follow our guidelines whilst on our premises

Please do not take out frustrations on our staff who are simply doing their job. This is a challenging time for everyone. If any explanation of the guidelines are required, we are happy to help.

Thank you so much for all your support 李

Updated information about bookings

We will be contacting anyone who has bookings affected by the new guidance.
Please get in touch with any queries.

✅ Bookings will be limited to a maximum of 6 people (unless same household/support bubble)
✅ We continue to ask that all guests remain within their party, even if you see someone you know
✅ We will still be temperature checking all guests on arrival and confirm your details for contact tracing
✅ Our staff all temperature check at the start of each shift and wear masks for close proximity service

Apart from the obvious effect on bookings, we hope that we can continue much as we have. Our focus remains on the safety of our customers and staff.
Thank you for all your support.

Booking at Armando’s under current social distancing guidelines

We’re getting a lot of enquiries about the guidelines for bookings and what we should all be doing in regards to meeting up with other households.

The guidance is below.

We are currently only taking bookings for 2 households/support bubbles on a table. We will continue to do so until the guidance changes.

We realise that this must be frustrating when trying to make arrangements. Please understand that we are just following the government guidance here to protect our staff, customers and ourselves.

Thank you!

We’re over the moon to receive this award from Trip Advisor.

Thank you so much to our amazing staff, wonderful suppliers and our fabulous customers for visiting and reviewing us 💛

Reopening next week – Friday July 10th

Best of luck to everyone opening up this weekend!
We’re closed this weekend but reopen next Friday 10th July

At present, we are fully booked over the weekends through July, but we have a cancellation list operating for each day and still some limited availability during the weeknights Tuesday – Thursday

We’ll be updating you with our safety measures to help keep the spread of covid-19 at bay over the next week

Reopening Friday July 10th

We are delighted to be reopening in July and hope that we will see you very soon.

We are currently taking bookings but regrettably will not be able to accommodate tables which exceed two households, in line with government guidance.

Our bar will not be open for full service – no guests will be permitted to stand at the bar and instead must be seated for table service.

As space will be limited, we would recommend booking in advance to avoid disappointment.

More safety measures will be communicated in due course.

We look forward to welcoming you all back to Armando’s. Thank you for your support.

Continued closure due to Covid-19

We hope that everyone is keeping safe and well.

During these difficult times, we have been overwhelmed with the well wishes that we have received. Although the doors are temporarily closed, we are looking forward to getting back to work once we are permitted to open up and it is safe and practical to do so.

Sending our best wishes to you all, Armando & Caroline xx

Updated information about the Covid-19 pandemic

We have made the decision to carry on and try to keep a sense of normality for our customers in these trying times whilst safeguarding our business by reducing overheads where we can.

With that in mind, we will be closed this evening and will look at reduced opening hours should bookings decline in light of the PM’s announcement.

We will be monitoring the Government requirements and remain open as long as we can.

We will continue to maintain our high standards of cleanliness and hygiene.

The situation will be reviewed on a daily basis and we will keep you all updated if anything changes with us.

Please continue to contact us to book or if you have any questions.

We will also be happy to extend the validity of all gift vouchers affected by this situation.

Thank you for your understanding and continued support.

Armando & Caroline
