Easing of Restrictions – Stage 3
Easing of Restrictions – Stage 3
GM Statement 1/07/2020
As of this Friday the 3rd of July, at 12 noon our trading conditions ease.
We can open gaming, have larger numbers in all areas and you can approach the bar for a beer or to order food. Our kids play area in the restaurant will also be able to open.
Our trading hours will return to normal as of Friday as well.
Social distancing & contact tracing is still required in the NVT – so entry is only through the main foyer and it is a requirement to fill out a contact tracing form before being served.
Restaurant 37/47 can now sit groups of up to 30 per booking. Bookings are not essential but to guarantee we will have a spot available for you we do recommend it.
Enhanced sanitizing will still be performed by the staff and table service will now end – I hope everyone enjoyed this.
As always, our Superstore, Drive Thru and bottle shop at the shopping center remain open at normal times.
Finally, the following services will NOT be available at this time – entertainment (DJ & live music), courtesy bus & functions. Also, takeaway food will cease as of Thursday at 7.30pm.
I would like to thank all the customers and our staff that have continued to support us over this time and we look forward to seeing more of you over the coming weeks.
Easing of Restrictions – Stage 2
GM Statement 10th June
Since Saturday we have started to get into the groove of doing table service both in the Restaurant and the Bars. I hope you are all enjoying this service and thank you for your patience.
We have now successfully reopened the Restaurant, Sports Bar, TAB Area and Lounge Bar – TAB & Keno services are now being provided.
We have all our beer taps flowing (except 4x Dry – which will come out soon and I am excited to taste this on tap) and lots of different beverages to choose from.
Our Superstore, Drive and Bottle Shop next to Woolies are still trading as per normal and we have lots of stock.
So just wanted to finally clarify a few things:
- If you are feeling unwell – please don’t come in just yet, we’ll still be here when you feel better, I promise
- Entry is only though the main entry foyer (exit will depend what area you are sitting in)
- You must sanitise your hands when you arrive (there is a station at the main entrance)
- You must fill out a contact tracing record, giving details of every adult in your party
- You must remain seated, we will come to you
- Book a table for the restaurant, always on 34911000 – we are limited in seating and we have set seating times
- We are limited to 20 people in each area (because we have a large restaurant we can have 3 lots of 20 people dining at any one time), if we don’t have room you will not be allowed entry, sorry
- We are still limiting groups to 10 max
- You can bring a cake if you are celebrating a birthday – but we cannot touch the cake or store it, we can give you a knife and some plates to serve however
- You can bring balloons, we will not supply at the moment, and you must take them with you when you leave
We are not taking function bookings at the moment as we still do not have information on what Stage 3 restrictions apply
So as before Welcome Back, thanks for supporting us and I will see you all real soon
