Follow the one-way system marked on the floor.

Once seated please remain at your table except to visit the toilet, pay your bill or leave.

Children must be supervised at all times and may not run around or leave the table without you.

Wait staff will take your order and bring food and drinks to the table.

When you are ready we will bring the bill and you can pay with cash or use the PDQ terminal at the counter.

Tables have been arranged in accordance with Government guidelines. Please leave them in place.

Chairs have also been placed so that visitors are side to side or back to back with other tables – please leave them in position.

Tables, chairs and multi-use condiment holders will be cleaned between customers.

Food preparation and service items are sterilised in dishwashers.

Due to decreased capacity in the Cafe we ask that time at the table is limited to 2 hours so other guests have the opportunity to visit.

It will take time for us all to adjust to the new way of working. Your patience and understanding while we adapt will be greatly appreciated.

Having said all that we can’t wait to see you with a big Flight Deck welcome!
