Cafe and Bar FAQs
Do I have to reserve a table to get food and drink?

The café / bar has tables available to reserve online. We recommend that you pre-book your table. If all tables have been reserved online, then you will not be able to sit down in the café / bar to eat or drink. You may order food and / or drink (non-alcoholic) from the takeaway bar – any takeaway items must be consumed off the premises under Covid regulations.

How long will my table reservation be for?

All table reservations last one hour. If your table is not reserved for the next session, you may remain longer at the discretion of the cafe staff.

When I finish skating, there is not an immediate table reservation session available.

Please choose the table reservation session which suits you best. As skate sessions and table reservations last different lengths of time, it is not possible to align the end / start times exactly. There will be an area to queue for your table outside of the tent.
If your table is available earlier than your designated start time, at the discretion of café / bar staff, you will be allowed to sit down earlier.

What if I am late for my table reservation?

You must arrive within 15 minutes of your allocated time, if you do not you risk losing your table reservation and any pre-ordered food. You will not be eligible for a refund, either full or partial, in these circumstances.

When you get to the venue, if you are skating first, it could be worth checking in with the café to let them know you will be taking up your table reservation.

What if I do not spend the full table reservation credit, will I get a refund?

If the value of your café / bar bill is less than the cost of your table reservation fee you will not be given a refund, either full or partial.  Why not buy a little something to take home with you, with the remaining credit?

If I do not spend the full cost of my table reservation can I use this credit on takeaway items?

Yes – We encourage you to spend the full cost of your table reservation fee in the café / bar.

What if I want to book tables for more than 6 people?

If all of your group are from the same household, you are allowed to be in a group greater than 6 (current Covid regulations – this is subject to change. All Covid rules and regulations will be enforced at the time of your session.).
In this case, please email hello@arena-ice.com and we will note your table reservation accordingly. You are able to book 2 tables of 4 on the ticketing system, or if necessary, please place more than one order.
You must ensure your booking complies with all current Covid rules and regulations in place at the time of your order and session. Staff at the rink and café / bar are required to enforce these regulations.

Will there be heaters?

There will be some heating available however, the structure is essentially open and outdoors so please dress appropriately – wrap up warm!

What if I am exempt from wearing a mask?

Please do not be offended if a member of staff asks you about not wearing a mask. They are here to keep everyone safe and to ensure Covid compliancy so the Ice Rinks can remain open.
Should you choose to wear a lanyard indicating your exemption, staff will be aware what this means.
Please do ask staff for any additional help or support you may need.

What if I have allergies, food intolerances or special requirements?

Please tell your server, when you are seated, of any information they should know regarding your dietary requirements. You may also wish to email hello@arena-ice.com in advance, along with your order reference number, to advise of your needs. Please do ensure you tell your server even if you have emailed in advance.

What if I can’t attend due to Covid-19 symptoms or regulations?

Please do not attend if you, or any of your group or household, are experiencing symptoms. Please email hello@arena-ice.com and we will reschedule your reservation either for this season or next.

Will I be eating outdoors?

Please review your table reservation ticket – most tables are under cover but are classed as outdoors. Some tables are outside and are therefore fully open to the elements.
