Lake House Café

First of all we hope everyone is keeping safe. Here at the lake we have made the decision to close completely at the moment but wanted everyone to know we will constantly review the situation and will keep you informed as soon as something changes.

In order to protect our customers and our staff we have decided not to do takeaways or deliveries of food at this time but when the guidance is relaxed we do hope to re-open. We did our best to keep the café a safe place by implementing some strict measures last week and will consider how we can do this again but we need to strictly follow the government guidelines so anything we do in the future will have to be considered very carefully.

We would like to thank everyone for their continued support, we often say how lucky we are to have the lovely and loyal customers that we do have. We look forward to welcoming you back to a safe environment when we can.

Stay home & stay safe everyone x

Lake House Café@Taplow Lakeside - Coronavirus update

As things are changing daily we thought we should let everyone know the situation at the lake. It is a difficult time for everyone and every organisation needs to consider what to do as to limit the risk of infection in order to protect both customers and staff. At the same time some people have expressed an interest to continue to use us for now.

Over the next few days we are going to trial the procedures outlined below and will then take a judgement as to whether we can continue operating. We have significant space at the lake and if this can be used properly, and we can introduce the correct safety procedures, then perhaps we can provide a space where the community can get out of their houses without having to have any close contact with other people. The following procedures are quite detailed but this is essential to protect everyone as much as we can.

Space – we have significantly reduced the number of tables inside the café so that there is approximately 2 to 3 metres between each table, the recommendation is 1 ½ metres. We have also reduced the number of tables outside and under our new procedures if someone wanted to they could eat / drink outside then pay outside without ever entering the café. When at the lake we would ask you to respect other tables space and try and keep 2 metres away at all times.

Service – we have introduced table service so people do not have to queue at the counter with other people, staff will keep their distance when taking a tables order. Please bare with us as this may mean you have to wait a little longer to be served.

Washing hands / Sanitizer - We have sanitizer available immediately you come onto the decking and at the entrance to the café (outside the front door). For the sanitizer to be effective you need to rub it in your hands for 30 seconds and then let it dry for 30 seconds. The best way to clean hands is by washing them with soap and water and we have anti-bacterial soap and hot water in both toilets. Again this should take 30 seconds. There are disposable paper towels to dry your hands.

Toilet facilities – It is difficult to monitor all surfaces in the toilet on a continuous basis so we will provide disposable gloves for those who wish to use them when using the toilet facilities.

Tables and chairs - will be sanitized after each use, if there is a dirty table you wish to use please ask us and we will clear the table and clean it for you before you sit down. We will provide a bowl for dirty dishes and ask that people place their own dishes in the bowl and leave the bowl on the table. We will then clear the pots and sanitize the table and chairs for the next customer. This will ensure that people do not sit at a table that has been used.

Door handles - and other shared surfaces that are touched by customers will be sanitized several times a day but we are creating an environment where you do not need to touch such surfaces.

Crockery and cutlery - this is washed thoroughly so is safe.

Staff – They will be monitored continuously and if they show any symptoms they will be asked to self isolate.

The advice we have received says the virus can be transmitted via hard surfaces but it is only transmitted to yourself if you put your hands in your mouth or rub your eyes / nose therefore please try not to do either. Sneezing can also spread the virus so please use a tissue / serviette, throw it away and sanitize your hands.

In terms of eating food we suggest that you use the cutlery where you can, if you are eating by hand, say a toasted sandwich, then please sanitize your hands or use a serviette to hold the sandwich.

Keep safe everyone.
