It has been a long time since we've welcomed you to our tea rooms. A lot has changed since we last opened our doors. At Cup, our customer's wellbeng is one of our top priorities. We've taken this time to update our service, train our staff, and update our offering to ensure that we continue to provide the best experience we can, while keeping both you and our team safe.
Cup Tea Lounge on Renfield Street will operate with slightly different opening hours. The new hours are:
Cup Merchant City in Virginia Court will remain closed for now. Further details below.
Gin71 Renfield St will open after Cup Tea Rooms closes in the evening on Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights from 5pm only.
For further details, please visit Gin71's own website: www.gin71.com
Unfortunately, due to flooding damage sustained during our closure, our Merchant City branch is expected to remain closed until mid August. We are undertaking a full refurbishment of this branch, and we hope you'll absolutely love it once we reopen later in the year.
Our Renfield Street branch is just a short 10-12 minute walk from the Merchant City, offering the same menus and service you've come to expect from Cup.
While our team will continue to do everything they can to ensure service is as familar as possible, there will be some important changes to how we work in order to keep everyone safe.
In accordance with the Scottish Government's Track & Trace program, we will collect contact information from you when you arrive at the restaurant. (For information on our data collection policy, click here)
When you arrive at Cup, a scanner at the door will automatically take a temperature reading. It will let you know whether it is safe for you to proceed into the premises. If the scanner detects an elavated temperature or fever, you will be asked not to enter the premises. We encourage all of our guests to ensure that they are feeling well, and not exhibiting any of the known symptoms of Covid-19 before travelling to visit us.
Our staff will be wearing face coverings over their nose and mouth. This is both to protect them and our customers. We understand that this can feel unusual at first, however it is important the our team wear these to keep them safe in the workplace.
Because raising your voice increases the distance that droplets from your breath travel, the Scottish Goverment have required us to lower background noise wherever possible, including background music. This is to ensure that no one needs to raise their voice above a normal speaking tone in order to be heard clearly.
