FiveSixEight missed you snow much!

Thursday 3 December 2020 16:35

It's a weird and winterful world we live in, and we're so happy to be re-opening FiveSixEight! Most importantly, we glove having you back! (ok, that's it, no more Punderland jokes) 

When exactly are we opening, you ask? Well - we're offering a "Click and Collect" service from 7 December to 9 December, and you'll be able to get your curly fries fix by ordering through our online app. We will be open for orders between 17:00 and 21:00. 

We're physically re-opening on Thursday 10 December, and the Quiz is back on that evening. We're feeling particularly generous so we'll be giving you some awesome deals on beer. Remember - you'll only be able to sit in if you order food.

Come on in!

Here are our opening hours from 10 December: 

Mon - Sat: 16:00 - 22:00
Kitchen opening times: 16:00 - 21:30
Last drinks orders: 21:45

We will be closed between 21-28 December but open on 29 December and New Years Eve. We're taking the day off on New Years Day (probably sleeping all day). 

We've got a few new bar rules and we're asking you to respect them when visiting FiveSixEight (makes things easier and safer for everyone): 

  • Register for track and trace prior to entering the building.
  • Please sanitise your hands on entry and exit.
  • Table service only, please do not approach the bar. 
  • Please order online from your table. To visit FiveSixEight, you must order a substantial meal. 
  • Indoors only with people from the same household, maximum group size 6.
  • Please don’t move furniture or chairs between tables.
  • Please don’t change tables.
  • Maintain 2 metres of social distance where possible at all times.
  • At all times when not seated (e.g. going to the toilet), please wear a face covering. 
  • Follow the one way system in the bar areas.
  • Unfortunately under current government guidance no dancing is allowed, please remain seated. 

If we notice you don't respect these rules we're going to have to ask you to leave the bar (we'd rather not).

Table bookings are (very) welcome. Please follow the usual booking process by emailing the bars at 24 hours in advance.

Sadly, both Metric and the Union Bar will remain closed for the time being; however, we are using these spaces to ensure social distancing can be maintained so you will be able to eat and drink in these spaces when visiting FiveSixEight. We also have a marquee in Beit Quad as additional seating space. Reynolds Bar and h-bar remain closed. 

Welcome back!
