River Kwai Alton

IN LINE with the government’s continued easing of lockdown restrictions, the River Kwai Restaurant will reopen for 

in-dining customers from Monday (May 17). We will be open from 4pm until 11pm Monday through to Saturday.

The safety of our customers and staff is our overriding concern. We have undertaken a review of our procedures and implemented changes to ensure that, as far as possible, we minimise any risks with thorough and regular cleaning and sanitisation of the restaurant. There will also be sanitisation stations for customers use during your visit.

Upon arrival, we ask for diners to wait outside the restaurant until a member of staff greets you. You will be asked to confirm you have provided your contact information before being shown to your table. This is in line with the rules for

reopening and no customers can be admitted into the restaurant until they have either scanned the NHS QR code –

using the NHS track and trace app – or completed their details in the visitors’ book, providing their name, contact information and time of arrival. Details will be retained for 21 days and only used for the purpose the Government intends.

Customers who have ordered a takeaway are also required to remain outside the restaurant and wait for a member of staff, who will ask for your order number. Payment by contactless card is the preferred method of payment.

All customers are required to wear a face covering within the restaurant – except when they are at their table – unless they have a valid exemption and can evidence this.

We will operate a strict table service only policy and staff will wear face shields when serving.


We will be operating at a reduced capacity to allow for social distancing, and therefore would ask customers to

book a table in advance of their visit. We especially recommend this at weekends to avoid disappointment.

We look forward to seeing you soon and hope you understand the measures that have been put in place.

On a lighter note, we will be operating our popular early-week and early-diner discounts. These provide for a 20 per cent discount on food for Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday diners, and a similar discount for early diners on Thursday,

Friday and Saturday between 4pm and 7pm. To qualify for the latter, you must have paid by 7pm.
