Covid State­ment August 2021

Dear Cus­tomers,

We have finally reopened our gallery and are delighted to be back, serv­ing break­fast and lunch. We are offi­cially open­ing our doors on Fri­day 6th of August at 08:30.

Our new break­fast and lunch menus are now avail­able to browse

Start­ing small but safely…
To begin we will be oper­at­ing the gallery side only. Until such time as we open our din­ing room we are not in a posi­tion to take reser­va­tions. Please bear with us until we have a big enough team to open both sides of the busi­ness and to get back into full swing.

Our open­ing menu is small and com­pact, sea­sonal, care­fully cho­sen and priced. We won’t have all our clas­sic dishes back on the menu to begin with, but please let us know what you might be miss­ing and we will look towards a fuller menu in the com­ing weeks and months. For now, how­ever, we are not in a posi­tion to make changes to our menu.

New Stall
We have a new stall at the Prince‚Äôs Street Gates for take¬≠away lunch, din¬≠ners and other good¬≠ies, all of which can be ordered in advance from our web¬≠site here (Far¬≠m¬≠gate Caf√© Lunch to Go) and here (Far¬≠m¬≠gate Caf√© at Home), or just drop by if you are in the Mar¬≠ket. (These items may not be brought /‚Äčcon¬≠sumed upstairs).

New Leg­is­la­tion
As per new leg¬≠is¬≠la¬≠tion for indoor din¬≠ing we are required to to check your dig¬≠i¬≠tal pass¬≠port /‚Äčlet¬≠ter of proof of vac¬≠ci¬≠na¬≠tion or recov¬≠ery* from your GP (*last 6 months). We kindly ask that you have these doc¬≠u¬≠ments with you on arrival along with a photo ID. Those under 18 are exempt when din¬≠ing with adults. We under¬≠stand that its strange and an incon¬≠ve¬≠nience, so we thank you for your sup¬≠port and under¬≠stand¬≠ing. Hope¬≠fully these new laws will not be in exis¬≠tence for very long.

Lead Cus­tomer
The lead or solo cus­tomer will have to pro­vide con­tact trac­ing details (name, tele­phone num­ber) which will be securely retained for 28 days and will be com­pli­ant with GDPR.

We are per­mit­ted accept a max­i­mum of 6 peo­ple per table aged 13 and over. This limit of 6 does not include accom­pa­ny­ing chil­dren (under 12). The total com­bined at a table can­not exceed 15 over­all.

Con­tact­less Pay­ment
We would appre­ci­ate con­tact­less pay­ment where pos­si­ble.

We have removed all per­spex from the gallery and from the din­ing room to achieve max­i­mum ven­ti­la­tion.

Clean­ing & San­i­ta­tion
There are hand dis­pensers at the Prince’s Street gate on enter­ing the Mar­ket, also at the entrance to the café at the bot­tom of the stairs, and when exit­ing the café on the cen­tral stairs. There is a fur­ther hand dis­penser inside the entrance of the bath­room (com­mu­nal area). We will sani­tise tables and chairs between each group, along with touch points through­out the day. We would appre­ci­ate con­tact­less pay­ment where pos­si­ble.

We ask that you wear your mask when enter­ing and exit­ing the café, and when walk­ing to the restrooms.

One-‚Äčway sys¬≠tem
In line with cur¬≠rent guide¬≠lines and in order to pro¬≠tect other cus¬≠tomers and the team, we ask that you fol¬≠low the one-‚Äčway entry and exit sys¬≠tem.

  • Gallery ‚Äď Prince‚Äôs Street gate then please turn left (just before My Goodness).
  • Din¬≠ing Room (Reser¬≠va¬≠tions) *NOT OPEN YET ‚Äď Prince‚Äôs Street gate then please turn right.

Exit through the cen­tral stairs into the heart of the Mar­ket. Please respect social dis­tanc­ing guide­lines and pro­to­cols oper­at­ing through­out the Mar­ket.

Thank you sin¬≠cerely for your cus¬≠tom and sup¬≠port ‚ÄĒ we are absolutely delighted to be open again.

Le meas,

Team Far­m­gate Café
