Coronavirus Update

Coronavirus Update 31.5.21

We are taking full advantage of the gradual relaxation of restrictions and have opened for business as usual – with greater spacing between tables.  Our policies and procedures have adapted to fit with all the recent and current changes in legislation and I’m delighted to say that qualifying members of our team currently have 100% take up of the vaccine.  All guests over 16 years old are now required to check-in, either through the NHS app or by completing a simple attendance form we provide.  Our take-away business remains unaffected by the recent regulation changes.


Previous post, November 2020: From 5.11.20 until 2.12.20 the latest restrictions mean we cannot offer table service.  We are still open for take aways (collection and delivery) AND we will take table bookings for December & beyond.  If you are coming to the restaurant for your order you must collect before 10.00pm.  We continue to serve through the window on the side of the building.

Previous post, September 2020: From 24.09.20 our opening hours will be slightly reduced on Friday and Saturday meaning we will close at 10.00pm.  In practice this means table bookings will effectively stop at approximately 8.45 – 9.00pm to enable us to serve you in good time before we close.

The NHS QR code, introduced to assist in the Track and Trace campaign, will be located at the main entrance door and other points in the dining rooms.  Please use the code, it’s in everyone’s best interest to keep Covid-19 as tightly controlled as possible.  We absolutely love welcoming you to Thai Orchid and dread the thought that a full lockdown may be reintroduced if the virus isn’t contained again.

Previous post, July 2020: The UK government announced that restaurants may re-open their doors to the public for table service from Saturday 4th July on condition that health and safety practices including social distancing are adhered to.  We have embraced the changes necessary to ensure a high level of safety for customers and staff alike and now offer table service once again.  We are only able to offer tables on a pre-booked basis and you must provide contact details in case track and trace action becomes necessary.

Our opening hours are:

  • Monday             Closed for lunch      5.00 to 9.30 for dinner
  • Tuesday               12.00 to 2.30         5.00 to 10.00
  • Wednesday        12.00 to 2.30         5.00 to 10.00
  • Thursday             12.00 to 2.30         5.00 to 10.00
  • Friday                   12.00 to 2.30         5.00 to 10.00
  • Saturday              12.00 to 2.30         5.00 to 10.00

We are still open for take away orders until 9.30 and continue to serve orders through our side window to enable safe distancing for all customers.  We continue to offer our delivery service too.  The delivery charges are as follow:

  • Orders with a value of £35.00 or more will be delivered free within 2.5 miles of the restaurant.
  • Orders less than £35.00 delivered within 2.5 miles of the restaurant will incur a delivery charge of £2.50.
  • Any orders delivered within 2.5 and 5 miles of the restaurant will incur a delivery charge of £3.50.

For greater distances we have set pricing and will provide details when you call.

Stay well, stay safe, stay healthy. We always remember that the best customers are those who are still around for us to serve, we take your safety very seriously.
