You will find a sanitising station to your left and be asked to confirm your booking details, answer a short series of health and safety questions and have you temperature taken. You will then be asked to check in via the QR code displayed or leave track and trace details of everyone in your party. Your host will then take you to your table whilst answering any questions you may have.
