Customers and our staff have always been front of mind at QSF, and we know that the happiness of both is fundamental to a great experience. We have been consulting with key industry experts and following new government guidelines about new protocols and how we elevate our cleaning and operational practices. We will be implementing a higher standard of cleaning together with changes to how our team works and when we’ll open – all with safety in mind.

Latest Guidelines

From Monday 17th May and subject to confirmation from the government, we will be opening our hotel & restaurant and look forward to welcoming you. We can still only accept guests from two households or support bubbles for dining indoors up to a maximum of 6 guests. 

We are hoping that from June 21st all social distancing rules will be changed, at which time our reservation system will allow you to book larger tables.

Please note for now, as we do not have any outside seating area, the rule of 6 for a maximum of two households is allowed indoors.  We ask all our guests to adhere to the government guidelines.

Any further guidance from Public Health England will be followed closely and we will continually update you on any new policies and procedures as a result of this.

All our customers in line with government requirements must arrive and enter the building wearing a face covering. 
This can be taken off when you are seated at your table.  Should you need to move from your table you are required to wear the face covering when moving around the building.
