The Ideal Six Steps

Firstly, we would like to thank our loyal customers, suppliers & staff for their support over the last few months.
We are so pleased that our venues are back open again and returning to the ‘new normal’.

Our fantastic teams have & will be working tirelessly to give the best possible experience that you have come to know & love.
However please be patient with us as this is new to us too! Regarding government guidelines expect to see the following ‘Ideal Six Steps’ we have put in place in each site, ensuring our customer & staffs safety.

We are delighted to say we have now received the ‘We’re Good to Go’ Certification from Visit England. This accreditation shows the extra steps and practices we have put in place to ensure we have a safe environment for everyone.

1. Training

Great Staff Start With Great Training

Our learning & development platform is delivered by Flow Hospitality including;

  • Staying Safe
  • Cleaning & Hygiene
  • Personal Protection
  • Customer Service

All returning staff have completed online training modules that are site specific. On arrival to sites we are recording the temperature of all staff members to ensure they are well & fit to work.

2. Track & Trace

Keeping Track Of Where You Are

Let us each play our own part by logging on to track our presence & keeping everyone as safe as possible going forward!

It’s so easy to leave your details with us & the data collection complies with the requirements of data protection laws. Follow advice & assist in the government’s efforts.

  • Track & Trace 

3. Risk Assessment & Stringent Hygiene Measures 

Our Control Measures

We operate each of our five sites with strict cleaning procedures which have only increased further since re-opening. Our control measures assist with minimal customer contact & ensure a welcoming safe environment for our customers.

  • Painted & decorated during lock-down months.
  • Deep cleaning procedures have been carried out at each venue.
  • Worked closely with chemical suppliers so we have COVID19 specific cleaning products for daily use.
  • Frequent toilet checks by staff members throughout the day.
  • Highlighted tasks that require staff wearing PPE.
  • Other small changes such as disposable menus & single use condiments. 

4. Hand Sanitiser 

Cleanliness For Staff & Customers

Hand santiser is available upon arrival & exit for all our customers and staff. There are units placed in our toilet facilities for ease of use. All staff have undergone cleaning & hygiene training increasing their awareness of the frequency of hand washing in between tasks.

Please take responsibility for your own safety & those around you by using this at every possible opportunity.

5. Our App

The Ideal Collection App

The Ideal Collection App is available to download for both IPhone and Android users.

The App allows customers to make a reservation, view menus, place contact less food / drink orders to their table
& contact less payment.

6. Physical Distancing

Distancing Measures

We believe keeping the appropriate distancing measures is a joint effort between our staff and guests.

We have carefully placed furniture to allow for more space per guest & staggered the reservations, adhering to current government guidelines & minimising the spread of Corona Virus.
