COVID19: The Reader Cafe has reopened as a takeaway service, but the Mansion House is currently closed. Please see our risk assessment and guidance for visiting the Cafe here.

At The Reader Café, we’re asking everyone to follow these steps so that we can all stay safe in the park together: 

  • Follow the one-way queueing system from the ramp at the front of the Mansion House, to the service hatch to place your order. 
  • Only join the queue with people from your family or household, if youre in a large group please consider waiting at a safe distance. 
  • When queuing, keep a safe distance (2 metres) from others by staying within the floor markings. 
  • When placing your order be prepared to pay using contactless or card as we cannot currently accept cash. 
  • After receiving a receipt, follow the one-way system to the Café courtyard area to pick up your order. 
  • On collection, we ask that you use the hand sanitiser provided and exit through the courtyard as directed by the signs.
