Our Steps for Staying Covid-19 Secure

Iain, Kim & Joe would like to welcome you to Ganders Restaurant.

We have carried out a Covid-19 risk assessment and have put measures in place to keep customers and staff safe.

To help us comply with current government rules we ask that customers:

  • Provide contact details on arrival via NHS Covid-19 Test and Trace app or if this is not possible provide written contact details
  • Wear a face covering on entering and when not seated at a table
  • On arrival sanitise their hands
  • Wait to be shown to their table
  • Remain at their table whenever possible. It is not permitted to move around the room to mingle
  • Remain 2m away from non-members of their household wherever possible. It is permitted to be 1m+ from non-members of your household providing mitigating precautions are taken i.e. face covering worn, frequent handwashing, side by side seating rather than face to face, limiting time with people etc
  • We will provide each table with a service station to which we will bring food and drinks. We ask that you leave your empties there too so we all stick to the 1m+ rule
  • That you do not come to the bar or designated staff area
  • We’re sorry but failure to comply will result in failure to serve


On our part:

  • Staff have been fully trained to comply with government rules
  • Staff must wear face coverings in public areas
  • On arrival staff are temperature checked and must thoroughly wash their hands
  • We will continue to thoroughly wash our hands throughout service
  • We have taken all reasonable steps to maintain a 2m distance in the workplace
  • Where this is not possible we have done everything practical to manage transmission risk
  • Your table and chairs are sanitised prior to your use
  • Door handles, light switches, surfaces and toilets are continually being cleaned throughout service
  • We aim to keep the restaurant well ventilated
  • Menus, condiments and sauces are single use
  • Menu choice is reduced to protect staff safety
  • Wine lists and safety notices are sanitised after use
  • Contactless or card payment is preferred to cash


Having said all this we hope to make your experience as relaxed as ever.

Established in 1998 we are a family business aided by our small team of helpful staff. The restaurant is in an idyllic setting overlooking St Helens Green, 10 minutes walk from Bembridge Harbour and St Helens Duver.

We are open for take away evening meals Thursday through to Saturday as well as Sunday lunch time for our ever popular, traditional roasts from Friday 16th April 2021.
