SOLE Safety Protocols

Welcome Back

As part of our Safety Protocol, The SOLE Team has implemented a suite of unobtrusive measures to help protect customers and colleagues as part of a collective global goal to defeat Covid-19…….

We have reduced our table lay-out and increased customers’ seating by a minimum of 1-meter distance, to ensure a more comfortable dining experience for you while offering safe distance dining between other guests.

At SOLE we take great pride in our existing cleaning, safety and hygiene standards, we, however, recognise that customer confidence and trust in our hospitality experiences are more important now than ever, we have re-visited all our procedures and have added a number of new and important protocols:

  • SOLE will engage dedicated and highly trained staff to constantly clean surfaces and touchpoints with increased frequency and will have a dedicated cleaning team on duty daily.
  • Hand hygiene remains extremely important. Safe and easy-to-use hand sanitiser stations will be located on arrival and throughout the restaurant for your convenience.
  • Upon arrival at your table, a hot disposable sanitising hand towel will be presented as part of your SOLE hospitality experience.
  • At all times, a lead team representative will be on duty to make sure protocols are strictly adhered to at both the front and back of the house to ensure the safety and wellbeing of colleagues and guests.
  • All staff will be wearing facemasks and we kindly remind all guests that government regulations do also require all guests to wear masks on entry to the restaurant and while moving around. Masks can be removed while you are seated at your table.
  • SOLE adheres and operates under the COVID-19 Work Safety Protocol employer checklist No 8 – Ventilation


Additional Covid-19 measures that SOLE is introducing as part of our Safety Protocols:

  • Proof of Immunity is required for all guests dining at SOLE with the exception of Children under 18 in the care of permitted persons.
  • In line with current government guidelines, table sizes will be restricted to parties of 6 guests.
  • Dedicated experienced hosts will be available to manage guest flows on arrival and departure.
  • To play our collective part in defeating Covid-19, one guest from all parties, including walk-in’s, will be required to provide a contact number and email address.
  • Cash-free methods of payments including Revolut and Apple pay are available and encouraged.

In consultation with our amazing team of hospitality professionals, we have introduced the following new measures for our team;

  • Daily Temperature and Health checks.
  • Weekly Antigen Screening from external medical professionals.
  • Separate Staff entry and exit point.
  • A new staff bicycle parking area.
  • Staggered start and finish times to avoid high traffic within staff changing areas.
  • All staff will be wearing protective face masks.
  • New Kitchen traffic flows and procedures to protect our team and guests.
  • Our Staff canteen and front of house changing areas have moved to an upper floor to allow comfortable social distancing between colleagues.
  • Ongoing internal and external training on new and updated policies and protocols
  • Flexible rosters where possible to support team members with children at home during schools and childcare closures

The COVID-19 Safety Charter is an initiative endorsed by the Irish Government to reinforce confidence in domestic and overseas visitors in tourism businesses.

Receiving this Charter means that at SOLE Seafood & Grill, every employee has completed appropriate COVID-19 hygiene and safety control training. We have also appointed a COVID-19 Lead Worker Representative, who completed the extensive Fáilte Ireland COVID-19 Safety & Hygiene Control Training.
