The safety and well-being of our team and customers will always be our priority, so in order for our teams to practice social distancing we will have fewer people working, at times this may mean that food orders take a little longer than normal and so we ask that customers please follow the signage and queue systems in place to keep everyone safe.

The team will operate the Compass Gold Standard and will always wear face masks and protective equipment.

The front of house areas will be cleaned frequently throughout the day and hand sanitizing points are available on entry, at all till points and collection areas for customer use.
