We take our responsibilities so seriously in relation to Covid. Right from the start, we have gone above and beyond in relation to our precautions to ensure Lunya and Lunyalita are safe places to visit and that you have a relaxed and enjoyable experience with us. Here is a summary of what we do. we have followed all government guidance (nationally and locally) as well as following all the guidance from our own Health and Safety consultants and the guidance produced by the UK Hospitality Association.

  • We have always been clean but we have really enhanced procedures and frequencies of cleaning to provide as safe an environment as possible.
  • All tables and chairs are cleaned and sanitised between guest visits
  • we take the temperature of our staff at the start, middle and end of their shift
  • There is a sanitiser station at the front doors to sanitise hands on arrival
  • We have a considerable number of sanitiser stations back and front of house to ensure that our staff sanitise their hands between any activity (e.g. each time they bring or take away items from your table), so they are always handling crockery, glassware and cutlery with sanitised clean hands
  • Our deli and kitchen staff wear disposable gloves each time they need to directly touch food and/or sanitise their hands
  • Our bar and deli staff wear disposable gloves whenever they handle glassware or cups near to the rim, or handle ice (e.g. cocktails and coffees)
  • We have a designated safe drop-off and collection zone for your table – which our waiters will explain about
  • We have spaced our tables out 1.5-2M to ensure good safe distances between diners
  • Our menus are single-use disposable paper menu
  • From 24th July, a face covering must be worn when visiting the deli, and it is now the law
  • We ask that you stay at your table, except to access the toilet, and if you have a mask, to wear it when moving from your table. Please exercise caution when using the stairs and if/when you need to pass, please turn your head for safer passage. from 25th September the law requires you to wear a mask when coming into the restaurant and when not at your table
  • From 14th September, maximum table size is 6 people, we will not accept bookings greater than this, even spread over multiple tables
  • If you have a smart phone, you must scan the QR code at the entrance to register your details. if you do not have a smart phone, we will take these details on paper in accordance with government requirements

We do not accept cash for any payments – all payments must be by card (preferably contactless – if you use your phone, there is no limit).  Should you wish to leave a tip, please do not leave cash; at times such as these (when trade is lower), tips play an important part in our staff income).  Cash introduces germs and potential contamination into our business.  All tips left on card go directly to our staff who share all tips between themselves. So, if you wish to leave a tip (and we certainly do not expect it) please leave it on your card
