With restaurants able to reopen from July 4, Lowton’s Courtyard Bistro has been busy making adaptations to allow it to do so safely and stylishly.
Restaurant owners Jason and Jo as well as Operations Manager Alex have made the most of the forced closure of the business during lockdown, wasting no time reconfiguring the bistro so that diners can look forward to sampling their homecooked food once again.
Seating inside the restaurant has been rethought and the total capacity reduced by 25% to help support social distancing requirements. Tables have been arranged back to back and new screens have been installed to seperate differenet groups of diners from one another. The Courtyard Bistro were keen to show customers this new look on their social media pages – and we at Lowton & Golborne News think they look rather good!
In addition to the screens, when you next eat at Courtyard Bistro, which is situated just off Stonecross Lane North, staff members will be wearing masks, there will be disposable paper menus and plenty of hand sanitiser pumps for use by customers and staff.
If you’ve walked or driven past the Bistro lately you might also have noticed that it has also been given a little spruce up outside, too. The team have been busy painting, tidying and installing new signage to give the restaurant some extra ‘kerb appeal’.
Customers are also being advised that the Bistro will no longer be operating a Bring Your Own Booze concept and moving to a more usual bar service only. Given the current economic situation facing all restaurants and cafes, the owners say they’ve made this decision only after much consideration – however with reduced capacities and the impact of several months of closure – it is understandable that the Bistro needs to ensure it can secure its financial future.
There will also be some change to the menus – with the option for everyone to chose what they’d like from the menu without there being a fixed price for two or three courses.
