We are feeling excited following last weeks governments delivery of the Road Map out of Lockdown. Finally, some light at the end of the tunnel, enabling us to start planning our road to recovery. Below, we outline our road map to re-opening, so we hope to see you return to Hart’s Nottingham very soon.
All being well, from Monday 12th April our courtyard will open for alfresco dining. We are planning a substantial marquee covering so we can provide a heated dining area. Head chef Martin Sludds is working with Executive Chef Aaron Patterson at our sister hotel Hambleton Hall to devise a seasonal a la carte menu suitable for welcoming you back.
We are already taking bookings online or over the phone. Due to predicted high demand we are asking for credit card details to secure your booking and will impose a 24-hour cancellation policy and will charge a £10 per person cancellation fee for no-shows or tables cancelled within 24-hours.
It is still a lawful requirement that we take all contact details for the NHS Test and Trace programme. We ask that all guests visiting us scan the QR code available and register your details.
The 10pm curfew has been scrapped but to respect our neighbours we will be closing our courtyard at 9pm. Face masks must also be worn, except when seated at your table.
We are able to accommodate tables of 6 persons from different households. Tables will be socially distanced, and we continue to follow Covid-secure safety measures to ensure we remain safe for all staff and guests. Our staff will be fully trained on their return to work and our professional table service will return once again.
As per the government’s guidelines, we will be able to accommodate life events again for parties of up to 15 people from Monday 12th April and up to 30 people from Monday 17th May. If you wish to discuss dates and options, please do contact us.
If all goes to plan, we will be able to re-open Hart’s Kitchen (indoors restaurant) on Monday 17th May, the rule of 6 for 2 households will apply and from Monday 21st June, it is hoped that all legal limits of social contact can be removed. We will be keeping abreast of the guidelines and update all our channels with our re-opening plans.
The team are looking forward to returning to their roles following safety measures training. We would all like to thank you for your continued support and we look forward to seeing you all very soon.
