Hi everyone! We are going to re-open the restaurant on Wednesday 5th August 2020.
We are looking forward to getting back to feeding all you lovely people but due to having to comply with Covid 19 regulations there are some new guidelines for the safety of our staff and guests.
Please call us on 01227 274591 to book your table (as ever we do not take bookings by email, Facebook, fax etc).
Bookings are taken no more than 2 weeks in advance. We are open for bookings Wednesday to Saturday 12noon – 8pm and Sunday 12noon – 3pm.
Because of the extra cleaning we need to do at the end of each day guests will need to leave the restaurant by 10pm Wednesday to Saturday and by 5pm on Sundays.
TABLE SIZES & DEPOSITS
Our maximum table size will be for 6 guests including any children – sorry but multiple tables for bigger groups will not be possible.
We will be asking for a deposit of £15 per guest payable at time of booking. This is fully refundable if you need to cancel as long as you give us more than 24 hours notice. Any less than 24 hour notice and your deposit is non refundable.
We have had to introduce this policy due to the high number of no shows being reported.
IN THE RESTAURANT
On arrival please wait to be seated.
All guests will be required to use the hand sanitiser provided upon entry to the restaurant.
The tables and chairs have all been positioned for social distancing for your safety and ours so please do not move them.
Once seated all guests will be required to stay at the table unless they need to use the toilet. There will be a hand sanitiser in the hallway to the toilets and guests are requested to use this before and after using the facilities. Please ensure you wash your hands thoroughly for 20 seconds.
Rest assured the toilets will be sanitised at regular intervals as will all door handles and frames as well as the card machines and any other contact areas.
At the end of your meal we will ensure an unimpeded exit from the restaurant.
Unfortunately we will not be able to open the tapas bar or the counter in the restaurant due to social distancing so they will remain closed until further notice.
TAKEAWAYS COMING SOON
We will be providing a take away service so keep an eye on our website for menus and collection times.
LET’S ENJOY OURSELVES BUT STAY SAFE
It is obviously an unusual situation that we are all in at the moment and regular visitors to us will know that we like our guests to relax and enjoy themselves. As long as everyone follows these guidelines and shows consideration to our staff and fellow guests there is no reason why that cannot continue.
We understand that not everyone will be happy with our new policy and might not want to book however we have done it with the best interests of our staff and guests in mind and we want to return to normal as much as everyone else.
Thank you for your support!
Nikki, Paul, Jo and all the team

Although the Government is allowing some restaurants and bars to re-open from 4th July, JoJo’s will remain closed for now.
We are constantly reviewing the Government and scientific advice, along with social distancing guidelines. When we feel it is safe for our staff and customers, and when we can make it economically viable to re-open, then we will do so.
The earliest that this will happen will be the beginning of August. We will confirm this on our website and Facebook page.
Until then we are not taking any bookings or reservations.
Please do not email or call asking to make a booking, or asking when we will re-open. We want to open as much as you want us back 🙂 and we will let you know when we consider it safe and when we are ready to welcome you back.
Until then please stay safe, keep your 2m social distance and we look forward to seeing you on the other side!
Nikki, Paul, Jo and all the team!

We have taken the difficult decision* to temporarily close the restaurant. JoJo’s will re-open as soon as the Government allows.
We will post further news and information here and on Facebook as soon as we can.
Obviously we are a local business, employing local people and using local suppliers. We really appreciate your support and custom over the last 15+ years and we will be back!
* Since writing this post the Government then ordered the closure of all restaurants and pubs until further notice.

Jojo’s is currently
open as normal and serving great food. We are doing everything we can to comply with the latest advice from the Government and NHS and we are obviously taking all reasonable precautions including providing medical grade sanitiser and increased spacing between tables.
We can also assure you that all of the team at JoJo’s are healthy and well with no symptoms of COVID-19 / Coronavirus.
This is a tough time for us all and we are doing everything to ensure our staff are safe / protected and that our long-standing local business and our local suppliers survive this difficult situation. However, above all, we hope everyone stays safe and well.
Thank you for all your support.
