Hextol Tans


First of all, thank you to all of our customers for your patience and support through this uncertain time but we are very excited to see you all again in our café following the easing of lockdown.

The Tans is open 6 days a week (Monday-Saturday) 10am-3.30pm. We are open for sit in and takeaway,  offering a reduced menu of our delicious homemade, vegetarian and vegan food. We will still have daily specials, soups, cakes and, of course, our fabulous scones! Our outside tables are now open too! Great for watching the world go by as you enjoy your lunch in the fresh air and they’re dog friendly.

During lockdown we have been hard at work making sure the Tans is safe to reopen not only for our customers, but for our staff and volunteers too. In the last few weeks we have seen volunteer shifts starting back in the Tans. These reduced shifts have allowed some of our eager volunteers get back to the new ‘normal’ while following our new safety procedures. We are delighted to be welcoming back volunteers in almost all of our businesses! We are bringing in other measures to ensure we are being as safe as possible. These include:

  • Increased cleaning and sanitising measures in the café and kitchen
  • Table service only and we ask customers to wait to be seated
  • We recommend card and contactless payments wherever possible
  • Fewer tables in the café so groups can socially distance
  • Maximum groups of 6 (unless a larger household)
  • Paper/disposable menus for each customer
  • Sanitising stations for customers and staff

To comply with government guidance we will ask at least one person from each party to give us contact details which we will pass to the Track and Trace service if requested. We will never use this information for marketing purposes.

We also ask if you or anyone in your household are suffering symptoms of COVID-19 to please stay at home.

With these changes, service might be slightly slower than usual for the time being so please be patient with us.

Keep an eye on our website and social media pages for updates, new menus and offers! See you all soon!

If you have any concerns or questions, please contact us via email [email protected] or over the phone 01434 604205.
