Our number one priority is keeping our members and their guests safe whilst at Tramp. In order to ensure we can maintain a safe environment whilst creating an environment in which members can enjoy the club, we have introduced a host of different measures to both comply with existing regulation and go above and beyond to ensure we operate a Covid secure environment. This allows members and their guests to enjoy an evening at Tramp safe in the knowledge that we are following best practice to maintain a safe environment.
Capacity & Distancing
We have taken action to restrict our capacity. This ensures all our members and their guests can be seated at tables for the duration of the evening. In doing so, we have been able to ensure that all tables are distanced at least one metre apart.
We highly recommend making reservations in advance due to our reduced capacity. We also ask members to bear in mind that due to the new government regulations brought in the week beginning the 14th September, we are only able to accommodate a maximum of six guests per table. The member making the reservation is responsible for ensuring their guests are from a maximum of two households.
When necessary and to ensure safe staggering of groups into Tramp, we may be operating a queue outside the door. In this event, floor stickers and guide ropes will ensure groups are safely distanced. Upon entry, all visitors are temperature checked. Anyone who gives a reading outside normal parameters will be refused entry for the safety of other patrons.
All items checked into the cloakroom are held in sealed suit bags to prevent cross contamination.
Test & Trace
The government requires us to collect contact information for every guest at Tramp. Members will be asked to provide a list of up to five guests accompanying them who will be asked to provide their information on arrival. This information will be kept in accordance with GDPR and supplied to government agencies upon request.
The hand sanitiser we offer to guests and staff at Tramp has a concentration of Ethanol above 80%. It has been approved for clinical usage due to its anti viral properties. The Journal for Hospital Infection published a paper on the efficacy of hand sanitisers which demonstrated those with Ethanol levels of 80% and above were effective against all 21 viruses types tested.
Flow of Traffic
We have taken steps to ensure that traffic moving around Tramp takes place in a safe and controlled way. On all staircases, we operate a 'Keep left' policy and whilst crossing the terrace we operate a one way system. In addition and to ensure safe distancing whilst using the smoking terrace we have allocated Gold tiles for those wishing to smoke without a table on the terrace.
All our staff have had full induction training on how to deal with Covid-19 within our operating environment and are equipped to implement all the procedures we have put in place. In addition, every member of staff is required to complete a daily return to work questionnaire and temperature check to ensure the risk level is minimised. All our staff are also offered the option of wearing masks during their shift.
Our newest addition to the team is Alex, our very own hygiene ambassador who ensures all high-touch points such as door plates and railings are cleaned with antiviral sanitiser in intervals throughout the evening .
In addition to our normal rigorous cleaning of Tramp during the hours we are closed, we have taken additional measures to anti-virally disinfect all surfaces using a state of the art electrostatic mister.
In order to create a safe environment to enjoy Tramp, we have made a number of structural changes to ensure this is possible. The room that used to house our famous disco has been converted to another restaurant. Here the dance floor has been carpeted over and dining tables installed to create a spectacular new restaurant where the full grandeur of this magnificent room can be fully appreciated. Likewise, where we have banquette seating both in the disco and on the terrace, we have installed dividing screens to maintain a safety barrier between tables.
Perhaps most importantly is that we ask members and their guests to cooperate for the mutual benefit of other members and the safe enjoyment of Tramp.
