It goes without saying Covid 19 has posed exceptional challenges to all in many ways. It has certainly hit a lot of industries worldwide hard and none more so than our wonderfully diverse hospitality industry.
We thrive on providing a service to our guests, so the lock-down has impacted our lives more than just financially. To be honest we really miss our guests a lot and this imposed closure of businesses has made us realise how much we love being in the service industry and pleasing guests and we are chomping at the bit to welcome them back.
So, in our eagerness to get back to the “new normal” at the hotel we have set an opening date to give us something positive to focus on. We anticipate mid-July but we will announce this in due course once announcements have been made and we know what safety restrictions will be advised by Public Health England.
However, at the KHH we are possibly more fortunate than some in so far as we have a fantastic range and diversity of catering spaces throughout the hotel that would lend themselves to social distancing dining and hotel stays. These include our outdoor roof terrace, new courtyard, our two restaurants and 5 separate events spaces and private dining areas. This will allow us the freedom of space to offer safe private dining as well as safe space restaurant dining.
We have been working on safer ways to interact with our guests and to ensure safety of staff and guests remain a priority as we emerge into a new era of hospitality operations. Infused with a good dollop of common sense and with the support of Bespoke Hotels Health and Safety experts we have clear and concise operational guidelines for each department when reopening the hotel. These encompass all aspects of our daily operations including bedrooms, restaurants, room service and family or private dining.
In addition to the important safety considerations Executive Chef of KHH and MBB Brasserie, Ethan Rodgers has been putting together new menus to diversify our food offering to suit social distancing dining. These include a good wholesome British restaurant menu, and room service menu with style, an outdoor terrace menu and a substantial choice of make your own picnic menus to take on your explorations of the beautiful Cotswolds and surrounding countryside as per our new Cotswold Escape Package.
All we need now are our lovely guests to stay or visit and savour and enjoy the experiences we have to offer at the Kings Head Hotel. We look forward to welcoming you soon!!
