Important Guest Information

Ahead of your visit to The Kinderton we just wanted to share some key information regarding what to expect when you arrive.

Currently Cheshire East has been placed in Tier Two and the fundamental principle of this means that we can only open as a restaurant and not as a traditional pub serving just drinks. This means that every guest has to order a main meal from our menu, the consumption of alcohol is then permitted alongside the meal but must be proportionate at all times.

In order to adhere to this rule we have set a maximum table duration time of 2hrs 30 mins for each booking dependant on the size of your party, this should have been confirmed at the outset of your reservation. We ask for your co-operation and support to enable our team to manage this process, for the avoidance of doubt table times cannot be extended so please bear this in mind if you are nearing the end of your allocated time.

The following confirms our current Covid rules when visiting:

  • If you are feeling unwell or displaying any symptoms of Covid 19 then please do not visit

  • All guests will undergo a temperature check upon arrival

  • Guests will be required to wear appropriate face coverings when entering and moving around the venue

  • The “Rule of Six” must be maintained at all times

  • Mixed households can only be seated in our outdoor areas

  • Once you are seated at your allocated table you must not join/move to another table

  • We are operating a card only payment system at present, cash cannot be accepted

If you are booked in one of our outdoor areas the good news is that the vast majority will be under cover and will be close to some type of heating. However in order to comply with Tier Two regulations we have to ensure that there is sufficient air ventilation within the marquee which will mean open walls and thus exposed to the cold December weather.


We therefore recommend guests bring a coat and wear other appropriate clothing, also we would suggest bringing a blanket to keep your legs/feet warm! Lastly thank you for choosing The Kinderton for your next visit, we have tried to make our outdoor areas as welcoming and festive as possible so hope that you, family & friends will enjoy at least a degree of normality, we can’t wait to see you!
