Our new health and safety measures


As many of you will be aware, we took the difficult decision to close the doors of Hotel Football and Cafe Football to the public on the 18th March 2020 due to the global situation created by the COVID-19 virus. We did so to ensure the health and welfare of our team members and our guests.

Concurrently, we felt that we needed to play our part and support the wider community to the best of our ability.  We therefore took the decision to open our Hotel Football doors to the incredible frontline NHS healthcare workers and medical professionals to provide them with a comfortable place to stay while they isolated from their families.

Looking after our NHS heroes over the past few monthhas been a huge honour for us and we sincerely thank everyone who supported us through this period. The community spirit that we have experienced has been amazing. From our team volunteers, to local and national suppliers, to past guests and friends of the hotel, the support has been overwhelming and we want to say a huge THANK YOU! We couldn’t have done it without YOU. 

Over the past few weeks our teams at Hotel Football and Cafe Football have been looking ahead to better days and to reopening the hotel and restaurant. We can’t wait to welcome back our guests in the weeks ahead. Having operated throughout the COVID-19 lockdown period due to hosting our NHS professionals, we have already had first hand experience of operating under rigorous guidelines and processes in order to protect the NHS team and our own volunteers in the building. This has given us valuable insight to how to do things even more safely than we used to before the virus outbreak.  

Guest and team member safety is a top priority for us and we have taken all the necessary steps to ensure a safe and comfortable experience for everyone visiting the hotel and restaurant. 

We have very detailed standard operating procedures in place which are used to train our team members, coordinate our overall operation and ensure tight controls throughout the building.

We have done everything possible to ensure that you can Eat, Drink and Sleep with us with full confidence that you are doing so in a safe environment.
