With London restaurants beginning to reopen on July 4th, I have been getting a lot of enquiries about if we are reopening for guests. Wander is a very small restaurant and currently it isn’t safe or realistic to reopen for normal service. It’s disappointing, and trust me nobody wants to reopen more than me, but it’s just way too much risk for myself, my staff and guests. So our plan for the summer is to continue to offer our Wander at Home kits on Thurs-Sat for pick up & Wander x Henderson to Home Kits for delivery on Tuesday & Friday. After reading through the government guidelines for hospitality and seeing the successful measures my friends in Australia have taken, I feel confident that we can mitigate the risk enough to safely be able to welcome up to 10 guests for Private Dining from the 10th July. We will seat guests upstairs only, around a large table. There is currently a restriction on only 2 households or bubbles being seated together, however the table has a width of 1.5m and we can create a slight seperation if needed to distance people but still allow you to dine together. There will be a few things that are different, the menu will no longer be designed to share, we will be using single use napkins, we will ask you to pour your own wine etc but it will be as similar as possible to what Wander was. We know a lot of you have had to postpone birthday, wedding and other celebrations, and by having groups of people from the same family/bubbles we feel we can reduce the risk and maintain required distancing whilst allowing you to celebrate those occasions safely again. Wander will be able to be booked for either Lunch or Dinner, however there will be a minimum spend that is dependant on the day, time and duration of the booking and we will require the contact details of all guests that we will provide to the government for contact tracing if requested. A 50% deposit of the agreed minimum spend will be required to confirm the booking which will be nonrefundable expect if we have to close due to a case amongst one of our staff, or if the government shuts down restaurants again. Due to the extremely fluid nature of this whole situation, we will only be taking bookings 3 weeks in advance. All bookings and enquiries about private hire can made by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include the date, amount of guests, and any dietary requirements in the email.
