Grafham Catering Arragments.
We can provide a one course sit down meal for £8 with the bar open in the upstairs bar/lounge area. However we would need a minimum of 20 meals to make this service viable but can only sit a maximum of 55. This restriction is to comply with current COVID regulations. If we don’t get the minimum take up for food then the opening of the bar also not viable. The way this would be managed is:
- We provide a reservation facility (make your menu choice and pay on the day) for a sit down meal on our web site at the same web location as you book camp/cv spaces.
- If we meet to 20 – 55 requirement by the late entry date we go ahead, if not we will advise by email that we, unfortunately, cannot provide food upstairs as our minimum number has not been met .but food will be available, on a take away basis, by booking on the day directly with the cafe.
- Food booked on the day for later consumption will be available immediately after sailing and can be eaten outside or inside in the downstairs café (but restricted to 25 people at a time).
