Coronavirus Protection Measures

Updated 18th July 2021

Checking in using the Check In Scotland App

Everyone must check in to a hospitality venue. To avoid queueing at the door we kindly ask our customers to check in using the Scottish Government Check In Scotland app which is available free on iPhone and Android. Using the preloaded app is quicker than using your phone camera to scan the QR code as your contact details will already be held by Check In Scotland. If you use your phone camera you will fill in your details each time you use it.   

Checking in Manually

If you don’t have access to the Check In Scotland App or phone camera we can take your details manually. The details we record are your name, contact telephone number and arrival time. These details are not used for any purpose other than the time you arrived and the time you left the bar. At the end of the day they are held safely under lock and key and shredded after 21 days.   

Checking Out

When using the Check In Scotland app to check-in you simply need to press the check-out button on the app to check out when you leave the bar. If you checked in manually, we will record the time you leave. 

Masks and face coverings

Tests have shown that masks and face coverings help to prevent the spread of Covid and as the safety of our customers and bar team is our number one priority, we respectfully ask our customers to wear a mask or face covering on entry and whenever you are not seated. If you forget to bring one don’t worry as we have disposable ones available.  For your safety, our bar team will wear face coverings on duty (which can be up to 12 hours a day), unless they are behind a bar screen.

Social distancing

Coronavirus spreads most rapidly when people are in close contact with a carrier. Hospitality venues have been given leeway to reduce the social distancing measure to 1 metre which is regarded as the minimum safe distance. As you could be in the bar for up to 2 hours, we ask you to respect the social distancing rule by staying 1 metre away from members in your group who are not in your immediate household.  We also have screens in place to separate tables from each other.

Hand Sanitisers

We have a hand sanitiser available on entry and throughout the bar.

As protocols change regularly, please keep an eye on this page for updates.

Thank you for your support and we hope to see you soon.
