The UK’s first purpose-designed and built socially distanced summer restaurant is set to open on the 5th July.
The Anti Social Club at St Moritz Hotel & spa in Rock in Cornwall, is the brainchild of Hugh and Steve Ridgway, alongside oSt Moritz Director of Restaurants, Jonathan Domé.
The concept will consist of 16 private dining rooms, seating between two and eight each, with a maximum of 160 covers.
Co-owner Hugh Ridgway says: “Our purposeful architecture allows us to trade our rooms in a safe and socially distanced manner, however we can only sell those hotel rooms if we can feed our guests – and feed them well. Simply reworking our current restaurants and bars, and operating at 30% capacity doesn’t allow that, so our specially-designed summer ‘pop-up’ restaurant, overcomes this obstacle, adding to, rather than detracting from, our stylish, VIP guest experience.”
