You’ll now find takeaway updates on our “Armando’s Takeaway” page
Here’s our menu for this week!
You can order items individually or make ordering easier and take advantage of a discounted set menu
Slot reservations/orders will be taken from 2pm-5pm TODAY for Thursday ONLY, by phone or WhatsApp on 07587 654880
Slots are strictly limited
First and foremost, we want to make sure that our standards of quality, safety and service aren’t compromised for you so this is why we have a limited menu and limited collection slots. Plus, we’re new to this so we may need to tweak our processes as we go!
The menu will change weekly, so do let us know if there’s something you’d like to see in future weeks. Not everything makes a good takeaway dish, but we aim to bring as many of your Armando’s favourites as we can.
We start tomorrow with limited collection slots available from 5.30pm until 8.30pm.
Orders will be taken from 2pm-5pm TODAY for Thursday ONLY, Friday slots will come available tomorrow and Saturday slots will be available from Friday.
You can book your slot and order either by phone or WhatsApp on 07587 654880, payment can be made either by bank transfer or card in advance (we’ll contact you for this). We will accept cash on collection but we politely ask that you bring the right money where possible to keep collection contactless.
Please don’t use email, Facebook Messenger or any other means to book or order.
Collection information will be posted tomorrow and this week’s dishes will be posted by lunchtime.
We are delighted to be offering takeaways starting this Thursday
Takeaways will be available Thursday-Saturday with slots available from 5.30pm – 8.30pm
This week’s dishes and order details will be shared tomorrow
We are devastated by today’s news that we will not be permitted to reopen for Christmas. We always look forward to the festive season and we have been optimistically preparing to reopen in advance of the tier review.
Sadly, all affected bookings have been cancelled. If you have paid a deposit, we will be in touch to arrange a refund for you.
We wish you all a safe and peaceful Christmas and hope very much to welcome you back soon.
Thank you for all your support and understanding,
Armando & Caroline xx
We’re all awaiting the news on whether or not we’ll be dropped from tier 3 following the government review next week.
We wanted to reassure everyone who has bookings that we are preparing to reopen when possible and safe to do so and we hope that this is sooner rather than later.
We will contact all bookings as soon as we have more news. Please get in touch if you have any queries.
Thank you to everyone for your patience and understanding at this frustrating and worrying time. We hope to see you soon!
We are currently in tier 1 here in Belper, so as far as things are concerned with visiting us in general, not much has changed.
- Face masks to be worn at all times when not seated to eat or drink
- Temperature check on entry
- Each guest scans NHS QR code on entry or provides contact tracing information
- Table service only
- Bookings limited to 6 guests unless one household
- 10pm closure (all guests to have left the premises by this time)
We have some tier 2 areas nearby, which means that the rules differ slightly for guests coming from these places
You may only dine with members of your own family or support bubble (1 additional adult that lives alone or a single parent family where the children were under 18 as at 12th June 2020)
As always we ask that you follow the rules in place to help us keep the risk to a minimum and keep everyone as safe as possible. Please get in touch if you need any further information and we’ll try to help!
From today, you can check in using the Test & Trace app.
Please use the link below for more details and to download the app prior to your visit.
