The Harbour Club is not open.  However, the Wine Bar and Terrace - the normal evening facility - is open from 10.00 - 22.00 Mondays to Fridays.  No tables inside, social distancing and all hygiene rules, e.g.sanitisers, are strictly enforced and adhered to.  There is a one-way traffic system operating.  Run by Dodi and usually two waitresses, coffee, breakfasts, light meals and a evening menu are all available.

Can you share a table normally with friends from another household or do you need to keep 2m apart?
 
There seems to be multiple interpretations of this rule.

 I suspect everyone is waiting to see where you are travelling to, and then heading in the opposite direction 😀

Georgie, be careful you will get that MORON Sangriman posting and insulting you again, his IQ must be scraping his arse along the gutter.

Not bad for me, the posh guy, that came from a Council Estate, went to a Secondary Mod School, ( yes I failed my 11+ ), but then went on to become a VERY successful business man.

MORON STOP INSULTING EVERYBODY YOU POST ABOUT, and try, although it might be difficult, posting something that could be Informative or Interesting on this site.

Yes air fares seem to be rising back to normal levels as well. We booked for about £25 each in each direction with EasyJet for November at the start of lockdown. The same dates are now a lot more expensive.

Yes, we are hopeful of a quick return to old days! Not looking at flights yet, but will do! When we find the
new flight rules! As long as the virus is down!
Can u believe the Virus in Lambeth - Brixton is the lowest in the country!
Am pleased to hear it. Crazy when you hear less busy places like the Midlands are in Lockdown.
Strange times.
Hope to be out in the early winter.
Council house guy from Brixton and Wife also. Unhappy! But we move on and get on and don't moan!!!

Spain have legislated that the "new normal" rules, 1.5m distancing and masks, are until a cure or a vaccine, so I doubt they will change this year unless they change their minds and the law.

We normally have friends over to stay with us when in Tenerife but since they are not from the same household I don't think it would be allowed or perhaps would if we social distance indoors, which is bonkers if they stay a week or two.  Similar rules here but the police can't enforce it.

At least in Sweden I could go to the pub with a couple of mates, but three is the limit, so not even two couples. The world has gone mad.

Why not Chinese? It's not like they are personally responsible or more liekly to have it.

Will proably go to our local mid week if it is open and not too much nonsense like having to book.

I miss the Chinese opposite el sombrero not excellent but satisfying

Never tried the little one down the road any good

Sometimes you need sweet and sour chicken balls now and again

Never got to try that one or its replacement. I can recommned Palillos De Oro in La Arena if it survives the lockdown but it is quite a walk from el sombrero. We are more or less equidistant.

Did you catch Gok Wan on This Morning doing cookery demonstration ? His father, is Hong Kong born, Chinese. He came to the the UK, married a British lady and they opened a restaurant. Gok Wan said he often cooked in his parentís restaurant. In the last couple of weeks heís demonstrated sweet and sour chicken and lemon chicken. If you didnít see it Iíd recommend googling for the recipes. Both are really simply any really really tasty. Add a pot of egg fried rice and a packet of spring rolls from any supermarket and youíll end up with a really nice Chinese meal in the comfort of your own home.
