Covid-19 Safety Regulations updates.

We have been working extremely hard over the last few months to make The Ruperra a safe place for you to enjoy. In order to make this happen, there have been changes made to the service - drinks and food are no longer ordered at the bar but through an app, details of which are found on each table. Alternatively, one of our friendly members of staff can come over to your table and take your orders. Our tables are spaced out according to the Covid-19 guidelines, ensuring social distancing is adhered to at all times within the venue. The NHS track and trace app is displayed on the front door allowing customers to mark there presence at the venue. There are multiple hand sanitizing points around the bar and all customers are asked to wear a mask when they are walking around the venue.
