COVID19 Message

Due to the current COVID-19 Pandemic, the restaurant is currently closed and we are now operating a takeaway and delivery service only.

The staff here at the Black Agnes Restaurant share the community's concern about this pandemic and recognise that it is a worrying and stressful time for all of us.

Following the Governments announcement on Friday the 20th of March 2020 that all social gathering places must temporarily close, we carried out an immediate review of our business strategy. After taking specialist advice from food safety and workplace health and safety consultants and in accordance with permission from the local authority, we have moved from a seated restaurant service to a takeaway and delivery service. 

Our focus will be on the provision of homemade healthy chilled ready meals, suitable for re-heating and consumption in the home, whilst following the governments social distancing advice. We aim to deliver this service in a cost-effective and sustainable manner with our focus on sustainability and community service, not profit. 

Robust Food Safety & Hygiene Measures 

With specialist support, we have reviewed our company policies and procedures as we strive to make every effort to ensure the health, safety and welfare of our customers and staff. 

Although we have always taken food safety and hygiene very seriously we are now going further and implementing a series of stringent and robust control measures. This will include:

  • The development and implementation of a HACCP (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point) food safety system in accordance with the Food Standards Scotland Cooksafe Manual.
  • Refreshing food safety training for our food handlers and delivery staff. 
  • Delivery of training covering hygiene measures to protect against infection.
  • Absolute adherence to all government advice concerning Coronavirus infection control measures. 

No Contact Delivery

We recognise that some of our customers, especially those in 'at risk' groups may be self-isolating so we are providing you with the option of a contact-free delivery service.

What this means is that when specifically requested we will deliver your food to an agreed location, such as your front porch and move back to our vehicle before calling you on the phone to notify you of the delivery.
