Our Covid Safety Policy

Peggy's operations to prevent spread of Covid 19

We want to reassure you that we are taking every step known to us and possible to keep you and our staff safe. We hope that the following information will help you to feel more confident about venturing into town for your next unique experience in the safe and friendly sanctuary now commonly known as “Our Peggy's”


Changes we have made and will continue to make to keep you safe

  • Temperature test for each member of our staff every day before they enter the workplace
  • Staggered table bookings to avoid queueing. ‘Visit Nottingham’ has asked us all to keep left when we come into town. There will be markers outside and inside our building to help you maintain a safe distance
  • We will operate at half our usual capacity to space out tables and keep our customers at a safe distance
  • There will be hand sanitiser for you to use on arrival and available to you at any time
  • You will also have the opportunity to wash your hands in our facilities upstairs or in the ground floor accessible toilet
  • On entering the building our Maitre d’ will welcome you through a shield of perspex and help process your booking as usual
  • We have a fully functioning air ventilation system that allows fresh air in whilst taking the stale air out
  • Our staff will maintain social distancing from you and each other at all times. We are trialling the use of clear visors by our staff during service. The Government guidance is to not use face masks in restaurants, but we want to reassure everyone that we are doing everything we can to keep us all safe
  • We will sanitize menus after every use
  • Where possible we will present your food and drinks on a small tray table next to your table for you to help yourself from. Please work with us to minimise contact. We will continue to serve you at your table in this manner
  • There will be no service at the bar which will minimise the need for movement around the venue
  • The Food Standards Agency states that it is very unlikely to catch Coronavirus from food. However our chefs will use PPE where appropriate and minimise contact with each other by reducing the number of Kitchen staff on duty at any one time
  • Only kitchen staff have access to the kitchen
  • We will continue to sanitise all surfaces that come into contact with hands; finger plates, doors, bannister rails, pillars. This will happen before your visit, during and straight after
  • Your table and chairs will be sanitised
  • Our bathrooms will also be sanitised at the same rate
  • The frequency of these operations will be monitored and checked by our management
  • We have a mirror on the stairs to avoid customers crossing past each other
  • We will encourage contactless payments (now upto £45 per transaction) to reduce handling cash
  • Our card reading machines and till screens will be sanitised before and after every use
  • Our musicians will also be distanced unless they are a family or touring unit
  • We have always asked our audience to keep noise to a minimum during a performance for the benefit of music lovers and in consideration of the band. We are now required by the Government not to raise our voices over the sound level of the performers. This is because of the potential for increased risk, particularly from aerosol transmission
  • We will continue to look into and think about ways to keep us all safe alongside following the current Government guidelines

We do reserve the right to ask customers to leave the venue if their behaviour impacts on the safety of others, including our staff. We sincerely hope you understand our intentions. If you have any other suggestions or concerns please let us know. We wish to work on this together with you
