Covid-19 - Our Health & Safety Message

Dear guests,

Our restaurants L’Enclume and Rogan & Co in Cartmel have re-opened on the 4th July 2020, followed by Henrock in Bowness-on-Windermere in July and Aulis London in August.

Starting from Thursday 24th September, all our restaurants will close at 10pm. There will not be any changes for lunch bookings. However, if you have an upcoming dinner reservation with us, this may affect your dining time. Our reservations team are contacting upcoming dinner guests, inviting diners to join us earlier, to ensure that all of our guests can enjoy our full dining experience.

Across all restaurants, we have stepped up additional precautionary measures across all our businesses, a few of them I wanted to highlight below;

• As always, all our restaurants maintain the highest possible level of hygiene and are as always, cleaned regularly and meticulously with sanitisers, now so more than ever. We have been kitted out with extra hand sanitiser so please feel free to make use of this during your time with us.

• Our team has been fully briefed with current government requirements and are undertaking extreme levels of health and safety procedures to ensure that guests and other staff members are safe.

• We have reduced the number of tables in our restaurants to maximise space around diners and have changed our standard service procedures around cutlery changes and napkin folding to reduce contact.

• Our team will be standing at a further distance from our guests and minimising close contact where possible.

• At Our Farm, we have taken necessary steps to ensure we reduce the risk of any contamination. Produce is handled by our chefs and farm staff once at the farm and once at delivery.

Aulis Cartmel has reopened and Aulis London will follow on August 14 2020 in accordance to government guidelines. Aulis London seats a maximum of eight guests and Aulis Cartmel seats a maximum of six guests making it the perfect setting for small groups to hire exclusively for a private dining experience. For non-private hire, we will take bookings from a maximum of three individual households at Aulis London, and two individual households at Aulis Cartmel to ensure safe distancing guidelines are met.

Our full health & safety manual that has full details on all our process and procedure can be viewed below.

Thank you for all your support, and if you have any further questions please do not hesitate to contact us via email info@lenclume.co.uk.

We look forward to welcoming you at our restaurants soon!

Simon Rogan, Chef/Patron
