Covid-19 Customer notice

We are over the moon to have welcomed so many of our regular customers and new guests back to the Falcon this week. There have been many “hellos” and “welcome backs” shared and smiles on happy faces.

The safety of our staff and customers remains our top priority and is of paramount importance. We have worked through the teething problems (to be expected) and polished and refined the COVID Secure procedures so that you feel safe when you next visit.

We are now getting used to working in the “new normal” environment, but changes to guidance are frequent and fast moving. Face coverings are now being worn in many indoor shops & venues and is now also recommended in hotel lobbies and corridors. This is expected to become mandatory as of 8 August 2020. Therefore, we respectfully ask that, as of Friday 7 August, if you are visiting the Falcon Hotel to eat or stay, that face coverings are worn in our reception area and hotel corridors. We do not expect diners to wear a mask at their table.

To ensure we can abide by the guidance for social distancing and make sure you are not disappointed; inside table reservations must be made in advance.

Tables on our terrace will be on a first come first serve basis.

Meals will be served from 12noon til 8.30pm.
