Vanquish the Virus

Covid-19 Situation


The Courtyard Coffeehouse Knutsford is currently closed under the instruction of the Government for all Restaurants and Bars in order to assist in reducing the spread of the Corona virus. This is devasting news for everyone in the hospitality industry and beyond, but we understand it is a necessity.

We have formulated a survival plan on the basis that this could be a long-term closure and we can confirm, to all our customers, that we will be able to reopen once the government give the instruction that it is safe to do so. At this current time it is difficult to know if this could be 1 month or 6 months and beyond?

In the meantime we hope you stay safe and we look forward to welcoming you again. Lots of love from Rob, Althea and the team X.

We are leaving no stone unturned in our fightback against the dastardly COVID-19 virus. The restaurant is now deploying a comprehensive range of rolling sanitisation and disinfection processes. This is to ensure that all public areas remain as safe as possible for our customers. We are also making sure that everyone is able to clean hands with sanitiser on entering and leaving the restaurant.

COVID-19 presents a very considerable challenge to businesses of all types, but is especially troublesome for the hospitality trades. Many of the things we need to be mindful of are now common knowledge, thanks to the large amount of on-going media coverage of the crisis. From washing hands to avoiding close contact with anyone that appears to have signs of the typical viral symptoms is now a familiar mantra.

It is important for customers to feel that they have the right to ask staff to clean any surfaces or cutlery etc, if they feel this to be necessary. Don’t feel embarrassed to give anything a wipe down with your own cleaning materials if you also feel that to be necessary but please advise a member of staff, and above all, be kind and respect others right to a hygienic and contamination free environment.

We will get through this if we all pull together and do the right thing. We must state that it is vital that anyone in self-isolation or with any of the typical symptoms of the virus should avoid any public venue until they have recovered.

Once again, the basic guidelines set out by Public Health England

Preventing the spread of covid-19

Public Health England (PHE) recommends that the following general cold and flu precautions are taken to help prevent people from catching and spreading COVID-19.

  • Catch it, Bin it, Kill it – cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when you cough or sneeze.
  • Put used tissues in the bin immediately
  • Wash your hands with soap and water often – use hand sanitiser if soap and water is not available.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects (i.e. mobile phones, ipads, bags, wallets and purses)
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth if your hands are not clean
