Here at Eleven98 the safety and comfort of our guests is of paramount importance. We're constantly revising and updating the measures we put in place, so that we're taking every precaution with regards to Covid. We want you to feel safe and comfortable, we want to feel safe and comfortable ourselves, and of course we want everyone to be able to relax and have a great time. Here's some information about our location, how dining at Eleven98 is considerably safer than a traditional restaurant, and what "the new normal" looks like when dining with us...

  • LOCATION - We're tucked away on a quiet and residential street, so there'll be very little foot traffic as you arrive and when you depart. This will help to facilitate social distancing during these times. We have a private garden where our welcome cocktails can be sipped in the open air when the weather permits

  • TRANSPORT - We're a close walking distance from Dalston Junction, Dalston Kingsland and Rectory Road Overground stations, and there are many local bus routes. We're also a super-easy drop off and pick up spot for taxis

  • ARRIVAL - The dining room and the WC will be thoroughly cleaned and sanitised before and after every Chef's Table service. This is a social dining experience at a communal table, so to ensure that everyone feels completely at ease, we'll provide 80% alcohol hand sanitiser to guests on arrival, and will also take each guest's temperature. This will be done with a non-contact instant laser thermometer and takes literally one second. We know that these are unprecedented  times to require such precautions, and we really appreciate your cooperation and understanding during this process. 

  • TIMINGS - At a traditional restaurant there's a constant flow of guests arriving and leaving at different times, with lots of coming and going. This can often result in there being a lack of space around the entrance. At the Chef's Table, all of the guests will arrive at around the same time. We don't take walk-ins, and we carefully limit the number of guests for each service

  • BOOKINGS - If you'd like to book the whole table for a private dining group of between to 6 to 12 guests, simply get in touch via our Private Dining page.

  • STAFF - It'll just be Aidan cooking and his partner Eden sometimes helping with serving our guests. Both of us will be wearing face coverings and washing and sanitising our hands throughout the evening. Aidan is a professional chef and is fully certified in Health & Safety, Food Hygiene and Food Safety, and has many years of experience working to the high standards of Michelin starred restaurants. He is also incredibly meticulous and conscientious by nature

  • THE LOO - There is also a hand sanitiser dispenser in the bathroom, and we ask that guests use this in addition to a thorough regular hand washing after using the facilities

  • COOPERATION - The collaboration of everyone attending will help to ensure maximum comfort for all. We are putting these measures in place for the physical and mental well-being of our guests and of ourselves, but in the unlikely event that someone is deemed to be acting in a way that makes others feel uncomfortable, they will politely be asked to leave

We would like to thank you  for your cooperation and hope that these measures will ensure a safe environment for everyone, offering our guests the peace of mind to relax and enjoy the excitement of a culinary journey through Hackney. If you think there is anything else we could do to further maximise your comfort before or during your visit, we would greatly appreciate your suggestions. We look forward to seeing you soon!
