Cupitt’s Lawn is back & other updates from the Estate12 June 2020 – posted in: Uncategorized
We have had a significant shift since the 1 June allowing us to welcome 50 diners in our Restaurant per sitting and 50 guests enjoying our beer, wine and cheese as part of the Cellar Door offering. It felt so good to see some of our loyal customers returning and meet some new guests excited to experience Cupitt’s.
Thank you to everyone who has joined us since we opened the doors mid-May. Your kind and supportive words and gratitude for the Experience have been heartwarming.
We are immensely proud of how our team have handled themselves during the last few months. Everyone has been adapting day by day, week by week, in very challenging circumstances, and we are incredibly grateful to them for all they have achieved.
NEWS: From 1 July restrictions will ease and we can welcome more visitors as long as they are seated, provide contact details and physically distance. This seating will be weather dependent.
Cellar Door is Back!
We’re delighted to announce that the Cellar Door once again open for wine tasting appointments. Due to capacity restrictions, we are offering wine appointments mid-week. Things are a little different to how we used to conduct tastings as we will be strictly adhering to all government guidelines, including best hygiene practises and social distancing. The most significant change is that bookings must be seated and we require your contact details. If you’d like to pre-book a wine tasting, please email us. Walk-ins are still very welcome. However, there may be a short wait if there is an appointment booked.
Cheese & Wine Experience
We’ve been overwhelmed by the number of our fabulous customers who booked our new Cheese & Wine Experience in the last week. It has been very well received. The Experience is a self-guided wine flight and cheese board on the lawn. It allows you to secure a table for 90 minutes as we must continue to restrict visitors to 50 at a time. This Experience can be booked for up to 10 people. If there is no demand, you can stay at your table for longer a Food Menu is also available between 12pm -3.30pm
We know everyone is keen to return to the lawn for drinks and pizza. We will be offering 90-minute bookings for this on the weekend. To secure a table customers must book the Cheese and Wine Experience. We will also be accepting walk-ins for the casual menu and drinks. However, due to restrictions, we cannot guarantee a table, and there may be a waiting period before you can acquire a table. A food menu is available from the Pizza Bar to dine in or take away from 12pm – 3.30pm. All bookings will have the table for 90 minutes and reservations are dependent on weather.
