Over the past few months we have monitored the government’s advice, swiftly acting on its guidance to ensure the safety of our team and guests at all times.

With the strictest health and safety measures in place, we are planning to slowly start to open our doors. Ensuring that systems and procedures are in place to support the health, wellbeing and comfort of our guests is, and always will be, our priority.

Our kitchen maintains its SALSA (Safe and Local Supplier Approval) status and our third-party suppliers are all safety assessed and approved. We continue to maintain a 5-star Health and Safety rating from the Environmental Health Office. We strictly adhere to advice and updates from Public Health England. In addition, our front and back of house teams have all received health and safety training specific to Covid-19.

Are there any restrictions for people wishing to visit The Wild Rabbit?

Our terraces, pub and dining room remain closed in accordance with government guidelines.

What is the risk of transferring the virus from person-to-foods / catching COVID-19 from food?

According to food safety agencies in the EU, it is very unlikely that you can catch COVID-19 from handling food. There is currently no evidence that food is a likely source or route of transmission of the virus.

The World Health Organization similarly advises that the likelihood of an infected person contaminating commercial goods is low. The risk of catching the virus that causes COVID-19 from a package that has been moved, travelled, and exposed to different conditions and temperature is also very low.

As is the case for any contact surface contaminated by an infected person, be it a door handle or another surface, food could lead to indirect contamination through touching. This is why everybody should continue to follow the recommendations of public health authorities on the washing of hands.

What measures are being taken to keep the preparation and cooking of food safe?

There are already strict hygiene rules around the production of food in this country, which all food businesses must follow.
These existing hygiene controls are designed to prevent contamination of food by any pathogens, including contamination by the virus responsible for COVID-19.

What are your staff doing to keep themselves and others safe?

All of our staff have access to hand washing facilities and are encouraged to wash their hands thoroughly and often – this is key as the government continues to confirm that hand washing is the single best control measure to prevent contamination.
We have invested in hand sanitisers as additional safeguarding measures.

Our staff are required to follow an illness reporting procedure should they have any symptoms, in line with industry standards.

Our team is working hard to follow important safety guidelines. Please treat them with respect; we will not tolerate any abuse.

If you would like to speak to a manager for any reason, please let us know.

We thank you for your continued understanding, support and loyalty, The Wild Rabbit team.
