Summer 2020 will be no different, however, the year’s ‘events’ have brought a raft of challenges, which the St Moritz team has admirably risen to meet, so regular guests will see some alterations to our usual dining operations.
Socially distanced dining will be available throughout the day in our exciting new addition, The Anti-Social Club. Breakfast and dinner will be available every day from the Anti-Social Club and the operations at Shorecrest and Sea Side will change slightly to ensure your upmost safety at all times.
Shorecrest will become a relaxed lounge and socially distanced bar. Offering hot and cold drinks following social distancing guidelines.
And Sea Side will be open, providing lunch and a fully-accessible dining area for guests with mobility needs, as well as safely socially distanced drinks and lunches served around our popular outdoor poolside area and leisure lawn, with breathtaking views across the Camel Estuary and Stepper Point.
We’re never ones to refuse to rise to a challenge, and 2020 has seen us employing our most creative of coastal blue sky thinking! As a result, we’ve conceived the UK’s first purpose-designed and built socially distanced summer restaurant, ushering in a new ‘bubble’ ethos as an exclusive dining opportunity.
And we can’t wait to welcome you and yours to Cornwall’s concept dining destination, with the ultimate safety measures, shaken and stirred with optimum innovation, style and service.
The brainchild of our founders Hugh and Steve Ridgway, alongside our St Moritz Director of Restaurants, Jonathan Domé, our summer restaurant will not only surpass the expected Government requirements on safe and socially distanced dining, it will optimise them at every turn, providing a new and exclusive private dining experience for individuals, couples and groups here at St Moritz Hotel & spa.
Nicknamed ‘The Anti-Social Club’, our clever dining concept will consist of 16 private dining rooms, seating between two and eight each, with a maximum of 160 covers.
We’re mixing the elements of private members clubs, private dining rooms, cool beach clubs and summer pop-up restaurants. And because safe doesn’t have to mean boring, we’re making the most of multiple dining times, clear guidance and exacting operating procedures that ensure the 2 metre rule, and new health requirements, are met, or surpassed, at all times, against a fun, chic backdrop at all times.
With interiors masterminded by multi-award-winning Cornish agency Absolute, the Anti-Social Club will take its inspiration from the clean, white art deco architecture of the hotel, mixing a subtle Miami colour-pop palette with classic coastal stripes, textures and flourishes.
Under the direction of St Moritz Director of Restaurants Jonathan Domé, our menus will continue to pay tribute to our incredible Cornish food suppliers and producers, all enjoyed in a relaxed, sharing style of service.
We’ll be releasing more details in the coming weeks, however, pre-bookings are essential and can now be made from the 4th July onwards.
We are expecting demand to be high, so if you would like to see, and be seen, at the Anti-Social Club, be sure to reserve your private dining room asap.
Despite clear advice from the Right Honourable George Eustice MP and Cabinet Minister's Office on Wednesday giving his support to our sector and telling us that pools could open for one household at a time, we have now heard that this has been withdrawn and that no additional gov.uk guidelines will be forthcoming in the short term. This is a terrible decision by whoever in Government pressured the withdrawal of this entirely sensible guideline, that one family could swim at a time in a pool. We know that DCMS are preparing guidelines for huge pools and waterparks to open around the middle of July. Keep watching for further updates.Latest Information
