Since Government guidelines were issued at the start of July, we have worked hard to ensure we can operate a COVID secure café. Our aim is to maintain our unique Cabinet Rooms style and atmosphere while doing everything we can to keep you and our staff safe. We are pleased to let you know that we have been certified ‘Good to Go’ by Visit England.
Click and Collect
We are excited to be able to offer a Click and Collect service. You can place your order and pay online before coming to collect it from the café in a specified time slot. https://goodeats.io/cabinetroomswinch
We have been asked by the government to capture contact details of anyone spending time in the café. The easiest way to do this is to introduce table bookings during the day, which requires you to enter your contact details to reserve a table. There are three tables available, which means we have a capacity limit of 10 people with social distancing of at least 1m.
Booking slots are for one hour and they are staggered to avoid bottle necks. We do not take deposits for reservations but you will be asked to enter card details in case we need to charge a no-show fee.
We will only share your details with the NHS Test and Trace team if asked to do so but you can opt-out of this by letting us know during your visit.
Please do not arrange to meet up with more than one other household. Each household will need to book their own table.
We have always been proud of our cleanliness here but we are ramping up our activity nevertheless. Staff have been trained on increasing the frequency of cleaning and hand washing. Please help us by sanitising your hands on arrival and before and after using the WC.
At the risk of sounding draconian, we must inform you that failure to observe safety measures will result in refusal of service. If you have any questions about this please do not hesitate to contact us in advance.
We are putting extra measures in place to minimise the risk of infection, such as increasing the ventilation in the café and encouraging customers to order and pay online. As a result we have made the wearing of face coverings optional for our staff. You are very welcome to wear face coverings in the café if you prefer. We are, however, asking all customers to sanitise their hands when entering the café.
