COVID-19 Precautions & Preparations - Our Commitment to you

Welcome

We realise that for many of you there are some concerns when it comes to heading back out to eat or drink, but rest assured, our main objective is to ensure that you can ‘Relax & Socialise with Confidence’ and with this in mind we invite you to read all about the preparations and procedures that we have implemented.

If the information below, does not answer your questions or concerns, then please do speak to us directly by emailing us at hello@copperhousebar.co.uk

 

Our Approach

Copper House has always prided itself on exemplary standards of service, cleanliness and health & safety.

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic we have enhanced our exacting standards to a new level across all aspects of our operations.

The changes we have implemented are based on the guidance we have received from HM Government, Public Health England and the National Health Service, supported by industry specific advice from UK Hospitality.

We can confirm that we have complied with the government’s ‘COVID-19 Secure’ guidance on managing the risk of COVID-19 in the workplace. Due to the constantly changing nature of this guidance and advice, our internal operating practices and protocols will be continuously reviewed and updated. The information detailed below may therefore change without notice.

As we are managing a Public Health issue, we expect the full support and co-operation of all of our stakeholders – our guests, our team and our business partners. Only through our collective efforts can we successfully combat the spread of COVID-19 and keep each other safe and healthy.
