We're open for business!

07th July, 2020

As lockdown eased last weekend, many Dock tenants were thrilled to welcome back friendly faces to our restaurants, shops, cafés and bars.

Independents’ Day saw restaurants including Lunyalita, Maray and Madre fully booked, with kind words from customers on their return.

Family-run bakery Rough Hand Made completely sold out on each day from Thursday to Sunday, while indie clothes store Lost Soles welcomed a steady flow of customers and lots of new sales. Peaberry reopened for both takeaways and walk ins – and will be the place to head to for gourmet ice creams for the rest of your summer!

All of our reopened restaurants have put measures in place to make sure visitors have a safe and enjoyable experience. Customers at Maray can now soak up the sunshine in its new quayside dining area and Lunyalita is another restaurant to have added additional outdoor seating.

Maray co-founder Tom White says: “It was a resounding success from both an operational and guest point of view. We were fully booked in the restaurant and made the decision to just keep our outside tables for walk ins and drinks.

“The atmosphere was great, our guests were conscientious and patient, we didn't have any issues with people not distancing or disregarding our policies and we received a great deal of positive feedback from diners about how comfortable they were made to feel.”

Over at Lunyalita, manager Tom Cavanagh also enjoyed the experience of being open again: “It was a really successful weekend for us, we were busier than expected and customers were respectful of social distancing rules to make it an enjoyable experience for everyone”.
