Please note that at present, we are not selling alcohol in our food outlets.

What measures have been put into place to make sure I’m safe?

We have put in place a range of measures to ensure you are safe when eating with us, which will be constantly reviewed in line with current Government advice.

The café will be operating a one-way system to purchase food and drink.

A sanitiser station will be available inside the café for your use and we ask visitors to socially distance when queuing. Facemasks must be worn when inside the café, unless you are seated at a table. 

Once at the front of the queue, you will be called up individually to the till point where your order will be taken. Catering staff will all be trained in our new procedures and will be wearing facemasks and gloves. Protective screens have been installed at all tills

We will only be accepting card transactions and ask you to use contactless payment where possible.

Our staff will be regularly cleaning all surfaces in the café.

What food can I buy?

We will be offering an amended menu in the Cafe - please see attached example.

How are you managing the Test and Trace system?

You will need to register your details with test and trace before entering any IWM site. We also recommend you check in using the NHS app. QR codes will be available in each of our cafes.

If you are sitting inside the café to consume your purchases, you must register your contact detail with us, or check in using the NHS app. We are unable to serve you unless you have done either of these.

What about dietary requirements?

Should you have any special dietary requirements, please speak to a member of the catering team. While we are operating a limited menu, we will still look to help wherever possible.
