Covid-19 Measures


By law, restaurants in England can currently only provide takeaway service.




Not currently permitted.


In accordance, with the current UK Government roadmap, reservations from 19 May 2021 can now be made. If this roadmap changes, bookings may need to be amended, moved or cancelled.


Must be ordered and collected by 10pm.

A local delivery service is also available (subject to availability), and a delivery fee applies.

Remember - ‘Hands. Face. Space.’:


hands – wash your hands regularly and for 20 seconds


face – wear a face-covering in indoor settings where social distancing may be difficult, and where you will come into contact with people you do not normally meet


space – stay 2 metres apart from people you do not live with where possible, or 1 metre with extra precautions in place (such as wearing face coverings or increasing ventilation indoors)

In these challenging times, we all need to do our bit to ensure that we are all kept as safe as possible. 

Thank you for your cooperation. 

NB: all measures are subject to change.

At the Canton Chef, the following changes will apply for the safety of both guests and our team:

  • There will be hand sanitizers around the restaurant, including at the entrance for customers and staff to use.

  • We will have a member of staff working full-time to sanitize contact points during opening hours.

  • Smaller party sizes and a  limited number of bookings will be available to allow for safe social distancing.

  • A one-time paper menu will now be used.

  • A reduced menu will now be served.

  • Foodservice times may take longer than usual due to restrictions. 

  • Following government guidance, we are required to take the details of customers who dine at the restaurant.

  • Allotted time slots for reservations will be maintained - with allocated table time aimed at: (1) balancing the need for customers to enjoy themselves and have a good experience; with (2) the restaurant's need to keep customers and staff safe, whilst turning tables to help offset the reduced capacity in the restaurant.

  • We need to allow time in between diners for cleaning to take place.

  • Reservations are preferred - by using our online booking enquiry form or by calling us on 01484 666 966 (during opening hours). However, depending on how busy the restaurant is - drop-ins may still be possible.

  • Depending on circumstances, a non-refundable deposit of £5 per person may be required at the time of booking.

NB: as circumstances are constantly evolving, the measures in place will need to change accordingly.

Please be assured, all of the procedures being implemented are designed to enhance the safety of guests and staff. Please, work with us to help ensure the safety and well-being of us all.

We look forward to seeing you soon.
