Everyone at AJ’s Kitchen and Bar is delighted to be welcoming our customers – old and new – back to the restaurant after a 15-week closure.
During the lockdown, we have been running our highly-successful takeaway and delivery service – as well as offering free meals to our blue-light services on two successive weekends.
We are thrilled to be able to open our restaurant again as we welcome the “new normal”.
Your safety is our top priority in these challenging times. Please take the time to read our new guidelines, to ensure our reopening runs as smoothly as possible
Opening Times (Restaurant, takeaway and delivery)
The only way to guarantee a table is to book.
The largest table size seats up to four people and that’s from a maximum of 2 households.

Meet your Host
You will be welcomed at the door by a staff member acting as your Host, who will confirm your booking and guide you to your table.
You will also be asked to apply hand sanitiser to your hands at this point.
Your host will take your order for food and drinks at your table. They will deliver food and drink to the table and take payment there too.
Please try to enter the restaurant with the rest of your group, so we can guide you to your seats quickly and efficiently.
Track & Trace
Government guidelines require that we keep details of our customers for 21 days to help them implement Track and Trace if anybody falls ill.
The minimum information we will need is the name and telephone number of the lead person (the person who books the table).
If you have a confirmed case of COVID 19 within 2 weeks of visiting the restaurant please inform us straight away.
Due to the fact we are operating a booking system there should be no reason to queue. However, at busy times, you may need to queue. Please observe social distancing rules and queue down the side of the street, nearest the building, to allow others to pass safely and gain access to their cars.
We will do all we can to ensure your safety and will take the following steps for your protection:
- Providing a safe environment for you to eat & drink
- Disinfecting tables, equipment, menus after every use
- Regularly disinfecting washroom facilities
- Ensuring compliance with social distancing rules
- Ensuring staff wash their hands frequently
In return we ask our customers to please:
- NOT visit the restaurant, if you’re experiencing any Covid-19 symptoms or have been exposed to anyone who is ill
- To use hand sanitiser when requested
- Abide by social distancing rules
- Be respectful of others during your visit
- Leave the washrooms as you would expect to find them
HOW WILL IT WORK?
We will be spacing all our tables and seats to comply with social distancing rules.
If seats are occupied, there will be a no-standing policy.
Once at capacity, it will be one group in and one group out.
We will continue to welcome to children but please ensure they are seated throughout your meal.
Once you are seated, please only get up where necessary, such as visiting our wash rooms.
Please do not block access and avoid queuing where possible. If our staff ask to return to your seat, please work with us.
Please visit our washrooms singly – unless you are accompanying a small child – and avoid lengthy conversations with other diners.
Finally, please bear with us. This is new to all of us and we will do all we can to ensure you have a pleasurable and enjoyable visit.
Any questions, please do not hesitate to ask.
We will review the situation regularly to ensure we are fully compliant with latest Government guidance.
