Centenary Lounge Steams Ahead
Centenary Lounge, Worcester’s popular GWR themed restaurant, reopened its doors on 24th July and has seen the venue returning to normality – even if it is a new kind of normal.
Aasia Baig, owner of the Centenary Lounge group of eateries said, “Every precaution has been taken to ensure that the venue complies with regulations relating to personal spacing and social distancing as the safety of our guests is our most important consideration. We are pleased to see that our loyal clients have been steadily returning and having a great time in our venue.”
Since opening there have already been days when the restaurant has been fully booked and this is a trend that is expected to grow as the lockdown rules continue to be eased. The government’s ‘Eat Out to Help Out’ programme has been a real success during August and Centenary Lounge, along with around 85,000 other restaurants in the UK, signed up for the scheme. People who have taken advantage of this programme have had the opportunity to see how well social distancing in restaurants is now working.
Aasia believes that now, more than ever, customer service and a great experience are what will keep customers coming back for more. She pointed out that it’s natural for people to be nervous about eating out again after having spent so much time in lockdown and added that the best way to see how restaurants have evolved is to experience it personally. Centenary Lounge is determined to prove that eating out now can be just as enjoyable as in the past, while still keeping their incredibly high standard for food and hospitality.
Known for being passionate about the golden age of rail travel, Centenary Lounge have also launched a new range of giftware based on the classic art deco styling of the 1930s. Luxury hampers and classic afternoon tea boxes are perfect for picnics, gifts or simply to make someone happy, have recently been made available due to popular demand.
