The lack of Covid measures in this restaurant is unacceptable. Staff were not wearing masks. We did not stay long.

Ate here 17 Sept. Food was good but zero covid safety measures in place. Lots of customers just drinking (no food orders). Not 1 staff member wearing face covering. No sanitation of tables or common areas between sittings. Surprised they can get away with it...considering current concerns.More

Lovely meal after climbing diamond hill. Fish and chips, and bowl of mussels. Generous portions, really good chips, easy to follow covid requirements, prompt service.

In reply to a previous poster as to why people would leave home to eat if they're 'not comfortable', I eat out to support restaurants and to - hopefully - enable them to stay open. I thought that was part of the plan? I could...of course stay at home, and watch restaurants close but that wouldn't be very helpful to anyone. Anyway in relation to Veldons, I had a lovely meal but only half the staff were masked, our server leaned into the table each time to talk about/hear our order and continually adjusted the mask back up to cover the nose. Not good! Other customers walked up and down numerous times (to toilets/outside for a smoke) without bothering to put on masks. Won't be returning til they train staff properly and put ALL regulations into operation.More

Last Saturday fortnight, my brother and I stopped here at lunchtime. We both ordered Fish and Chips. The fish was impeccable. The Chips were soggy. I asked our ever helpful server to reheat the cold mushy peas. They eventually came back only marginally warmer. We...have stopped here before, and ths was the first ever disappointment. Hopefully it will be the last.More

Unbelievable food and service!! I rang at 9pm wondering if I could get a table for 10 people for the following day, and they could. We were escorted to a little private function room which was quite and peaceful. We all got to sit together...too at the same table. The food was amazing. Steaks cooked perfectly. Very reasonable pricing also.Really food drinks and shots. All staff wore masks and were really polite. Would recommend for anyone travelling to eat there! Photo of my garlic bread starter and a shot of baby Guineas!More

ate here food was good service was poor. But there were a crowd of locals drinking and were in and out the door smoking. I did not at all feel safe in these times of pandemic and feel the management are not playing within the...rules.More

This is a great bar/restaurant serving great food!.. holidaying locally I frequented Veldons over 4 days it was that good. The staff are very friendly, helpful and professional. Despite previous reviews I can confirm that all COVID precautions are in place. I’d recommend the Chowder...and the fish and chips. Both are so good!! Highly recommended!More

The food offering in Veldons is very good but unfortunately we felt very uneasy with the lack of masks worn by staff. On asking about this, the member of staff assigned to our table immediately offered to wear one but NOBODY ELSE on duty was...wearing one. If customers are to feel comfortable eating out, the very least the establishment should do is to implement the guidelines. I note that I am not the only one drawing attention to this.More
