Wander is closed to guests for the time being.
After the recent increase in Covid cases, I have decided to temporarily close Wander to guests. After going through the first lockdown closure, I feel that is a lot better for us mentally and economically to make a proactive decision and therefore we will be transitioning back to offering only Wander at Home.
It was wonderful welcoming a lot of you back to Wander over the past two months and I’m extremely fortunate to be in a position where I can confidently make this decision. The support and understanding over the past 6 months as we have navigated this pandemic has been incredible and gives me hope that Wander at Home will again be a success that will sustain us through the next potential lockdown. Maybe I'm wrong about where things are headed and after a couple of weeks if the cases don't continue increasing we can reopen to guests, but we will just have to wait and see...
Wander at Home is available to order via
Stay safe and see you soon
Please read our Covid & Cancelation policy below prior to making a reservation
We are slowly welcoming guests back to Wander for dinner on Thursday, Friday & Saturday evenings. We have reduced the amount of tables so that all guests are able to maintain a minimum distance of 1.5m. We will be offering two set menus only. On the weekend for tables booked between 6-6.30pm we have a 4 course Quick Banquet for £25, for reservations booked after 8.15pm we have a 7 course Chef's Banquet for £40. On Thursday we offer both menus the whole evening. Menus will change daily depending on availability, and we can accomodate dietary requirements only with prior notice. We will be taking only limited reservations online, if the time or date is unavailable please email firstname.lastname@example.org. However before requesting a booking, please read the following carefully and if you disagree with any of the above policy, please do not make a reservation. This is all non negotiable and put in place to comply with government regulations and to ensure the safety of both guests and staff.
We require credit card details to secure a booking. Wander is a small restaurant, and we can only safely welcome 14 guests at one time. Please note if the table is cancelled for any reason a charge of £35 per person will be taken from the card used to secure the booking. In the event of the government closing restaurants or Wander we will not charge a cancelation fee. If you feel unwell, have been asked to isolate or are awaiting test results please do not come into the restaurant.
All bookings more than 15 minutes late without notice to the restaurant will be treated as a No Show and be charged a cancelation fee. We will do our best to contact you in the 48 hours prior to your reservation to confirm and any dietary requirements not disclosed prior to dining may not be able to be accommodated. We are not currently accepting walk ins. Due to the very unpredictable nature of the world we will only be taking reservations within 14 days.
In line with government guidance we require all guests names, contact numbers & email. We will contact you prior to booking via email & temporarily record the information for 21 days, and assist NHS Test and Trace with requests for that data if needed. We will also email all guests ( not just the person making the reservation ) our Covid Secure policy prior to dining and require confirmation that it has been read and understood. We reserve the right to refuse service and failure to observe safety measures will result in service not being provided. Police and the local authorities have the powers to enforce requirements in relation to social distancing and may instruct customers to disperse, leave an area, issue a fixed penalty notice or take further enforcement action.
There is hand sanitiser at the entry to Wander and we ask upon arrival that all guests go to the bathroom to wash their hands prior to sitting. Although we have two bathrooms, we ask that only one guest goes downstairs at once. When paying we ask that only one guest comes up to pay at one time. Once seated we ask that all guests remain seated and do not move positions. Please do not move the tables or attempt to change the layout of the tables. When you are dining at Wander we ask that you do not go outside to smoke. Please smoke prior or post dining only. We ask that people minimise their personal belongings that they bring to Wander. Any coats, bags or umbrellas will need to be kept with you and we ask that you do not use the coat hooks or ask staff to store things for you. We know that people come to restaurants to celebrate but we ask that you do not exchange any gifts at Wander, please don’t bring flowers etc. We will do our best to minimise touch and interaction during service so we ask that you pour your own wine and water, and please dont attempt to pass plates to the FOH as they clear. Please be aware of the FOH when they are dropping or clearing to minimise contact. Menus & napkins will be single use, tables will not be preset. Dishes are no longer designed to share. When entering and exisiting Wander please try to maintain a distance of 2 meters and respect our neighbours and others on the footpath.
We will continue to offer Wander for private hire so please contact us via email with any enquiries . We look forward to welcoming you to Wander. Please contact us via email email@example.com if you have any questions regarding your booking or our Covid-19 policy.
