In the current pandemic emergency, we are following Government advice and regulations. This means you will see some sensible changes to our food and drink service at The Carlton. You can find out more about our Covid-19 Stay Safe Policies & Procedures here.
Yours and our safety
We are passionate about safety. The safety of you and our team. So behind the scenes (and in front) you’ll be comforted to know we are cleaning touch points, high traffic areas and frequently disinfecting your dining area to combat the virus better. Our procedures in working safely are assured by Visit England and the AA and reflected in our 5* food and hygiene safety rating from the local authority.
Our key changes include: Dining in our Brasserie will feel a little different with a revised menu, suited to working in a new way, but retaining our guest favourites of course. Service will be limited to booked guests only, we won’t be able to seat you without a reservation. Reservations can be made ahead of arrival or at front desk, via email, phone or during your stay.
Our staff training has been augmented, and the team may be wearing face coverings whilst helping you and other guests. At entry and exit points to the building, and at entry to the lift, we have installed sanitiser dispensers. Please use these.
There is still the personal touch to be enjoyed at The Carlton. Be reassured we are doing this for everyone’s safety.
