Table service

You will be shown to your table and we will be operating table service. Service will be a little slower but we hope that you will bear with us as it is essential that you stay on your designated table.

In order to keep the environment safe for you and our staff, our staff will be wearing masks. Before each bar opening all surfaces will be cleaned thoroughly. We have created a one-way system in and out of the bar and you will see posters advising you of the 2m social distancing rules, these must be followed at all times.



The toilets will be opened but will not be cleaned during the bar opening times. The toilets will operate on a strict 2 in 2 out system, you are asked to sanitise before entering the toilets and to leave promptly after use, washing and sanitising your hands on leaving. Please do not queue outside the toilets past the designated 2m distancing tape.


Having a good, safe time


Our Bar Manager has worked extremely hard to make your bar safe, so please respect the bar team.


We know that you’ll want to have a good time, but we will not be serving those who are clearly drunk.


If we see that you are not abiding the social distancing rules or changing tables you will be asked to leave and a report made to the University.


We ask that you respect the toilet facilities as if these are considered unsanitary during the half hour inspections, they will be closed immediately along with the bar.


Our priority is your safety and that of our staff is our utmost priority! We’re not trying to ruin anyone’s fun. If everyone follows the rules, we can stay open, but unfortunately if you don’t we’ll be forced to close.


Please act safely we look forward to seeing you from 8pm on Tuesday 15th September. If you need anything from the students’ union get in touch with us through union@uwtsd.ac.uk or through our social media
