The RAFYC & Riverside House have put significant effort into making our operation COVID-Secure. This has changed the way many parts of our facilities and services are operated. Some of the changed operations affect our members and users and some affect internal operations – enhanced cleaning for example. See sections below for details of changes to operation affecting club users.

QR codes for use with the NHS Track & Trace app are displayed by the entrances to Riverside House, on tables in the bar and on the terrace. Continued use of this is recommended

Updated 10th September 2021

  • Bar hours are currently:
    Monday – Wednesday 17:00 – 21:00; Thursday &  Friday 17:00 – 22:00; Saturday 12:00 – 21:00; Sunday/Bank Holiday 12:00 – 19:30

Face coverings are no longer required indoors by hospitality venues, however guidance still encourages “the use of face coverings by customers and workers, particularly in indoor areas where they may come into contact with people they do not normally meet”.

In order to fulfill our duty of care to both staff and users of Riverside House, the following rules are in force from 10th September 2021

Bar Service

  • When waiting to be served, you must wait behind the hazard tape line in front of the bar
  • You may only approach the bar when called forward by a member of bar staff
  • No sitting or drinking between the hazard tape and the bar is permitted
  • Staff are required to wear a face covering when serving food or drinks.

We ask you to be respectful of our staff as we continue our efforts to provide a safe environment for everyone to enjoy.

Thank you on behalf of the directors & bar team who have put a lot of effort into making our bar & restaurant ‘COVID-Secure’ for you and our staff
