The menus at 81 Beach Street reflect the wonderful range, diversity & quality of food served on a daily basis. Put together by one of the most experienced and talented kitchen teams in the area, there is always a great choice of fresh, creative plates; meals that look as good as they taste!
We are delighted to announce that we are re-opening at 12noon on Tuesday 14th July. We are so excited to be welcoming you all back to 81 Beach Street. We hope you are well and have stayed safe over the last few months.
We have been working hard on what will be the ‘new normal’ for the foreseeable future at 81 Beach Street. Please be assured our only goal is to create a safe and welcoming environment for our customers and our team, so that everyone can relax and enjoy the hospitality we’re known for. We have given careful consideration to every decision we have made in navigating our way through this new normal. Please bear with us, as things may take longer, we may have to make changes – but this is a new journey for all of us.
The 81 Team x
Here is a summary of the key differences you may notice when you visit us, if you would like to read our full Company COVID Policy please download it here.
Bookings & Group Sizes
We would advise booking your table in advance – either via our website or over the phone, as we have fewer tables than usual due to social distancing. For tables of over 6 people, you will need to call the restaurant to book, this allows us to re-position the tables as necessary. We have carefully considered the position of all our tables, we politely ask that you do not move them, without speaking to a member of our team first. Thank you.
Arrival (inc Track & Trace)
A member of our team will greet all our customers on arrival, explaining everything you need to know to have a safe and enjoyable visit with us. We will ask for you to use our hand sanitiser station and guide you to your table. We will also take down your contact details, as per the Government’s guidelines to collect information if ‘Track & Trace’ is needed.
Please do not approach our bar area to order additional drinks or to make payment, all service will be table service.
We will be running a slightly reduced menu for the time being, but don’t worry it still features all the 81 favourites. We will provide you with a menu, which will be only used once and will then be recycled.
How to order & your table
We will be doing our very best to keep a safe distance when taking orders and serving your table.
The tables will look quite bare as they will not be pre-laid. Cutlery, napkins, condiments will be served to you after you have ordered. We will ask if you can, kindly, stack and position your plates at the edge of your table to allow for reduced contact in clearing your tables. Thank you in advance for your help with this.
To reduce the handling of cash, we are cashless for all food and drinks.
Please be assured there is regular cleaning going on at 81 Beach Street. Our top priority will be all frequent touchpoints and the toilets. Our payment machines will be cleaned after every use. There are several hand sanitiser stations around the restaurant. Tables and chairs will be cleaned after each customer, we have allowed extra time in the turnaround of tables for this. At every point we are following the highest standards of cleaning through-out the restaurant and in the kitchen.
Toilets will be regularly cleaned by our team, wearing PPE.
There will be a lot more single-use items now at 81 Beach Street, we are very conscious of this and will be ensuring that we will be recycling as efficiently as possible.
Due to the new guidelines we sadly can’t provide colouring pencils for children, so please do feel free to bring your own.
We’re a vibrant restaurant and whether it’s live music or simply a really attractive special offer, there is usually something going on.
Special Occasions & Private Hire
Whatever the occasion, we are here to make it as memorable as possible. For larger parties, why not opt for our private dining room in an intimate sea view setting, which can comfortably accommodate up to 24 guests for a sit down meal. Please call and speak to a member of our team to discuss the options we have available.
For that all important meeting or conference, we offer a range of facilities including wireless broadband Internet connectivity. We are happy to discuss exactly what you require to make your event an unforgettable success.
