Re-Opening Plan in light of the current global pandemic.

Keeping our staff and customers safe is our top priority, and therefore we have made some interim changes to our opening hours and general operation.

We will initially be open Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. these reduced hours will enable us to assess the procedures we have put in place and to gauge staff level etc

We will be initiating a booking policy.  This will enable us to maintain safe customer levels, enforce safe distancing and ensure we have enough time between bookings to throughly clear and sanatise the tables. we ask that you call ahead and book a table to avoid queuing as we do not have the facilities for this. You are welcome to book the day you intend to visit (subject to availability) but we advise you book with as much notice as possible to avoid disappointment.  IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO BOOK, PLEASE SEND US A MESSAGE ON FACEBOOK.  In line with the government policy, we will need to take your name and number for contact tracing purposes.

We will be offering a take away service, whereby you can call ahead, place your order, pay over the phone and collect your order in our new take away (non contact ) beach hut!  If you are just 'popping in' for a takeaway, please enter through the front door of The Tea Cosy and wait at the sign, a member of staff will be with you as soon as they can.

We will be resuming our cake ordering service form 10th July.  Please send us a message on facebook if you would like to place an order. 

Please bear with us whist we adapt to a new way of working, like everyone else has had to. We are expecting our customers to follow government guidelines and we will be enforcing these during your visit. 

*Please enter The Tea Cosy through the main, front entrance.  There will be a santazing station as you enter.  Please waiti here to be seated at your allocated table.

*We will only be offering a table service option. Please bear in mind that we are operating at a reduced level of staff to enable us to maintain social distancing and we ask that you bear with us whilst we process your orders.

*We ask that you respect the social distancing rules and other customers at all times.  This means people should only visit us in their household groups (or support bubble) or with one other household, or with up to five other people outdoors. 


These details will be be updated as soon as we have further information.  Please help us to keep everyone safe by following our guidelines and that of the government.

Please do not hesitate to contact us should you have any queries regarding your visit.
