Rule of 6
September 15th, 2020

IMPORTANT INFORMATION

In light of the new rule that 6 people can now meet up inside, as a company we have decided to still stick to allowing bookings for ONLY 2 households upto a maximum of 6 people. We have been extremely proud to hear all the positive feedback regarding how safe everyone feels when they dine with us. We have seeked confirmation from our local MP, council and environmental health today regarding the rule of 6, and social distancing inside while sat at a table. The law states that if you are eating with someone outside of your household or bubble, you MUST keep 1 meter + apart. So to seat 6 people socially distanced 1 meter apart at a table, they would be required to sit at a table suitable for 12 people. This simply isn’t feasible space wise, and financially. We won’t operate like other establishments and not follow the distancing rules. The Environmental health have informed us that they will be policing the rule of 6 and social distancing, and we will not risk our license, reputation but most importantly the safety of our customers and staff. We have also seeked clarification regarding the test and trace of people dining with more than 1 household, and we are only required to take 1 persons details from the group of 6 different households. In our eyes this is ludicrous. We have always taken the numbers of both households and will continue to do so for our peace of mind. We know that not everyone will take the same view as us and we apologise if this affects your plans, but at present, with rising cases, this is where our company stands on the rule of 6. As always we are incredibly grateful of the support and following we receive and hope to welcome you soon.

Re Opening 7th July
June 24th, 2020

The 7th of July. Put the date in your diaries. We have missed being able to serve you our delicious food from our friendly staff. In the meantime we are putting procedures in place to make sure you and all our staff are safe. We will be following government guidance throughout. Of course we want you to book and enjoy yourselves so for the time being we are taking bookings via email ascoughsbistro@aol.com and our text message service 07531186316. The land line will not be maned until our return as we are still working from home. We can only allow upto 2 households to dine together and screens will be provided for the 1m rule between your households until further notice as per guidance. We will also require all contact details for all households as part of NHS track and trace. Your safety and our staff is paramount so please be patient with us in these testing times as we will of course make sure all covid and hygiene standards are adhered to. We would love to hear from you but in the meantime stay safe and see you all soon.
