Hermanus Teddy Bears’ Picnic

Welcome back to the restaurant trade now allowed to operate under advance level 3 regulations. Reuniting with the world at our favourite eateries does provide a sense of discovery. Pear Tree and Char’d Grill restaurants in Hermanus made sure that their returning clientelle feels safe and also cheerful when stepping out for a meal at these beachfront restaurants. Owner and Chef Petri Hendriksz has put the following measures in place:

  • Staff are screened daily and display a colourful sticker stating this
  • Serving mainly takes place in the open air area adjacent to the restaurant
  • Exotic alcohol-free kombucha tea cocktails with ginger, turmeric and lemon were introduced
  • Reducing touch points with quick access to the menu via a QR code
  • Wrapped cutlery provided with individual salt and pepper sachets
  • Last but definitely not least, observing social distancing protocols by placing giant teddy bears on seats similar to what restaurants in Paris have done.

The over-sized teddy bears make social distancing very “bearable”. While some patrons (the bears) are literally stuffed others look forward to ordering from a menu visible via the QR code. Eating out has been made safe while also much fun.

If you go out in Hermanus today, you’re in for big surprise…
