BREWERS Fayre has confirmed when its Chester and Ellesmere Port restaurants will reopen.

Burleydam in Childer Thornton will be the first to welcome back diners when its doors open again on July 29.

The Twirl of Hay in Great Boughton will reopen from July 31, before Tudor Rose in Ledsham begins operating again on August 4.

Brewers Fayre has put in place a number of coronavirus safety measures to protect customers and staff.

It said: "We're creating extra space inside our restaurants and installing protective screens, where needed, to make sure everyone has enough room to feel comfortable and safe.

"We’ve also placed signs on floors and ceilings to help direct you around the restaurant and we'll be operating a one in, one out system for our toilets.

"We know that keeping your hands clean and sanitised is important for everybody. Which is why we've made sure there are hand sanitisers at key points throughout our restaurants – including at the entrance, exits and other areas where there could be a larger number of guests.

"We'll be reducing contact points by delivering all food and drink on trays, using single-use recyclable menus (including allergen menus), wrapping clean cutlery in individual napkins and providing all condiments and seasoning in individual sachets.

"We're encouraging you pay with contactless cards where possible, payments have been increased to £45.

"Dedicated cleaners will clean our restaurants throughout the day, every table will be cleaned between visits and all of our cleaning products are certified to be effective against Covid-19.

"Our team members will be provided with all the protective equipment they need to work safely. Kitchen team members will wear visors, cleaning team members will wear gloves and aprons, and every team member will be able to wear a face mask if they choose to."
