Enjoy the Bubble Room Bramhall at home with new drinks takeaway service

1 Oct 2020

It’s been a transitional year for family-run bar-cum-restaurant The Bubble Room Bramhall as they navigate the new normal. I Love Bramhall caught up with co-owner Scott Mason and General Manager Stefan to find out how one of our favourite haunts has kept that homely vibe while becoming safer than ever. 

Last year, the Mason family – owners of The Bubble Room Bramhall and its sister in Alderley Edge – took on a new management team, headed up by Stefan. No-one could have predicted how 2020 would unfold but one thing’s for sure: it’s been a baptism of fire for the staff, who have not only had to acclimatise to their roles, but also to all the new measures enforced as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.

During the Pandemic:

Remarkably, The Bubble Room has weathered the storm relatively unscathed: the team has remained intact and the restaurant has taken thorough measures to ensure compliance with regulations alongside maximum comfort for customers, so it’s able to function efficiently.

Step inside and you’ll notice a few changes: the floor has been refreshed and the layout has been switched around, but it’s just as appealing now – if not more so – than it was previously. Gone is the bench at the rear, and the armchairs and short tables have been replaced by some swish taller alternatives. There’s more space to move around as a result of the social distancing requirements but aside from these cosmetic changes, the ambience remains the same: homely and welcoming.

Scott says that staff did a lot of training and took the time to make sure everything was right in the restaurant before re-opening to the public. With an excellent reputation to uphold, it was important to the team that processes were implemented to ensure safety for customers and staff, and that the layout was optimal for keeping everyone at the recommended distance.  

Make your way to the back of the eatery and you might spot a new wall hanging, as well as a curtain, which separates the two rearmost tables. It’s a cosy touch that doesn’t look out of place and you’d never guess that it’s actually a safety measure. 

“We installed the curtain in place of a screen,” says Scott, “to provide that security for customers and help them feel safe. We didn’t want to create a clinical feel; The Bubble Room is known for its homely ambience and it’s this home-from-home vibe that we wanted to preserve. It’s one of the things our customers love about us.”

Some of the restaurant’s clientele hadn’t ventured out at all during lockdown and chose to make The Bubble Room their first port of call when it was announced that vulnerable people could once more go about their daily business. 

“They came to use first because they knew we’d have thought about everything and made things safe,” Scott adds. “Even the high risk clients have told us they feel comfortable coming here, and we do everything we can to make them feel at ease.”

This personal touch is apparent in many ways, from how the staff know instantly what regulars like to drink and have it ready for them as they come through the door, to printing off the crossword for a customer who used to enjoy filling it out in the paper but, under the guidelines, now can’t.

Special Offers:

Visitors of all ages pop in from Wednesday to Sunday for a coffee, to enjoy a delicious breakfast, lunch or dinner, for a yummy Sunday roast, or to have a drink in the evening. The government’s Eat out to Help out scheme may have ended but The Bubble Room has continued with its own version, Steak out to Help Out, on a Wednesday – a fantastic offer of two courses and two beers or glasses of wine each for £18, which is a saving of just over 50%!

The deal is available until 9pm and in accordance with new guidance, the bar closes at 10pm in the evening, but has now opened an hour earlier, from 9am, to compensate.

Excitingly, The Bubble Room is also launching a brand new takeaway service, which will allow customers to order drinks from the bar to take home with them at closing time. Everything from draught beer and bottles to cocktails is available on a takeaway basis with 10% off during the introductory period, and orders can also be placed by phone for collection. 

Looking Forward:

The team is looking ahead to the final quarter of 2020 and has already planned out The Bubble Room’s Christmas menu. While there will only be six people allowed at the table this festive season, the team are committed to making every experience special and will be announcing some fantastic deals and discounts on Christmas dinners, so watch this space!
