Tier 2 – High Alert

Depot is open, under Tier 2 restrictions.

Inside Depot, you must not socialise with anyone who is not in your household or support bubble. But you can meet others outside at Depot, up to a maximum group size of six people.

We can only serve you when you are seated at a table. Bar service is for takeaway and cinema customers only (ticket holders can order a drink up to one hour before or after the film). Not seeing a film? Cake and non-alcoholic drinks are available. Inside, you can order by app or we’ll come and take your order. Outside, it’s order by app only.


We’ve put in place a range of measures to help ensure your safety – as well as that of other customers and the Depot team.

The measures shown here are those agreed with the UK Government and public health experts to help ensure your safety. These measures are kept under constant review – so please check our website frequently. Updated 27 November 2020

We ask everyone visiting or working in Depot to be aware of the latest advice from the UK Government on COVID-19, and to follow that advice to minimise the risk of the virus spreading.

You must not visit Depot if you are required to remain in isolation due to current Government guidelines, or if you have any symptoms that may indicate you may be infected with Coronavirus.

In our restaurant

It is mandatory to wear a face covering at Depot (unless you have a medical exemption) which may be removed when seated to eat or drink.

You must order at your table, either via the Hopt app (when seated anywhere) or via your server (available when seated inside only). Bar service is no longer available (non-alcoholic takeaway and cinema excepted).


Check in and order using apps on your smartphone

It is mandatory to either check in for Track and Trace using the NHS Covid-19 App, or to complete a Track and Trace slip on each visit. We only require one set of information per group. The data will be securely stored, only used for this purpose and destroyed after 21 days. Privacy policy

#ContactlessCoffee is a serving method for those wanting to bring their own reusable cups at Depot.

Inspired by the fantastic City to Sea, it’s designed to increase hygiene safety by removing any unnecessary contact while getting your hot drinks, as well as being a reusable and sustainable method – an integral part of how we do things at Depot.
