Updated – 4th January 2021
We are sadly still closed, we hope you are all keeping well. Please do stay home and stay safe. We will open as soon as we can, but unfortunately we do not know when this will be yet.
Many of you have enquired about take-away, unfortunately this is not a workable option for us. We know many local restaurants are offering this though, so please do support them during this time.
For those who have bought vouchers with us before Christmas and took advantage of the free £25 voucher please be assured that we will amend the validity of these once we know when we will open. We can’t wait for you to be able to use them.
As always thank you for your messages of support and kindness during these difficult times.
We will update you as soon as we can about out reopening.
The Granville Team x
The Granville has carved out an excellent reputation for serving modern European food of the highest quality and is featured in The Good Food Guide and other major listings.
Full of character, The Granville is divided into a comfortable sofa area, a bar area and an eating area, with a central fireplace. Outside, there is an enclosed garden with a patio area, where up to 40 customers can dine al fresco.
The bar serves traditional Kentish cask ale and distinctive international lagers and offers a good selection of wine by the glass.
We have been working hard on what will be the ‘new normal’ for the foreseeable future at The Granville. Please be assured our only goal is to create a safe and welcoming environment for our customers and our team, so that everyone can relax and enjoy the hospitality we’re known for. We have given careful consideration to every decision we have made in navigating our way through this new normal. Please bear with us, as things may take longer, we may have to make changes – but this is a new journey for all of us.

Here is a summary of the key differences you may notice when you visit us, if you would like to read our full Company COVID Policy (updated 24th September) please download it here.
Bookings & Group Sizes
We are taking bookings for our inside tables. We would advise booking your table in advance – either via our website or over the phone, as we have fewer tables than usual due to social distancing. Our maximum table size is 6 as per the changes in the law on September 14th 2020. We have carefully considered the position of all our tables, we politely ask that you do not move them, without speaking to a member of our team first. Please note we are not taking bookings for our garden tables. Thank you.
Arrival (Inc. Test & Trace)
It is now a legal requirement that all our guests where a face covering when entering and when moving around our restaurant. On arrival, a member of our team will greet our guests explaining everything you need to know to have a safe and enjoyable visit with us. We will ask for you to use our hand sanitiser station and guide you to your table. We will also take down your contact details or you can use the Government’s QR code to collect information in the event that ‘Test & Trace’ is needed.
Unfortunately, our bar area is not available for customers to sit and drink at, if you are sat at an inside table please do not approach our bar area to order additional drinks or to make payment, all service will be table service.
Our menu is back up to it’s normal size and we have Burger Night on on Mondays, we are also running our Weekday Set Lunch menu. Steak night will be back, mid October. We have single use menus and we also have wipe clean ones, which we are using.
How to order & your table
We will be doing our very best to keep a safe distance when taking orders and serving your table. The tables will look quite bare as they will not be pre-laid. Cutlery, napkins, condiments will be served to you after you have ordered.
If we have tables available and you would like to sit outside our Host will direct you to a table outside. We are now running table service for our garden tables, so please wait at your table and one of our team, will come and take your order. Please do not wait at the bar for your drinks.
For both inside and garden tables we will ask if you can, kindly, stack and position your plates at the edge of your table or on our clearing stations (our Host will explain this to you) this will allow for reduced contact in clearing your tables. Thank you for in advance for your help with this.
To reduce the handling of cash, we are cashless for all food and drinks.
Please be assured there is regular cleaning going on at The Granville. Our top priority will be all frequent touchpoints and the toilets. Our payment machines will be cleaned after every use. There are several hand sanitiser stations around the restaurant. Tables and chairs will be cleaned after each customer, we have allowed extra time in the turnaround of tables for this. At every point we are following the highest standards of cleaning through-out the restaurant and in the kitchen.
Toilets will be regularly cleaned by our team, wearing PPE.
There will be a lot more single-use items now at The Granville, we are very conscious of this and will be ensuring that we will be recycling as efficiently as possible.
Due to the new guidelines our garden toys will not be available. We also, sadly can’t provide colouring pencils for children, so please do feel free to bring your own.
We are fast approaching November and although we don’t yet know what Christmas will be like this year, we do know that at The Granville we are planning to open as usual on Christmas Day!
