Club Update

Coronavirus / Covid 19 Virus
Last Updated: Monday 14th December 2020

 

I am writing to update you on how the Club is responding to the Government's announcement today that London will move into  the Tier 3 restrictions category, which will come into effect after midnight tomorrow - Tuesday 15th December.  
 

Stratford House Operations

From 11pm tomorrow, Tuesday 15th December, the Club will pause its in-person Food and Beverage operations (the Oriental Club Express delivery service will continue to be available).  All reservations for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner will go ahead as planned up until that point.   The Club Team will contact all Members who have reservations between Wednesday 16th December and Wednesday 23rd December when the Club had originally planned to close.
 
At this stage, the Club's understanding is that it may provide accommodation for Members and Guests requiring it for essential purposes.  We will continue to honour and accept reservations up until Tuesday 22nd December.  It is hoped that, as a minimum, a simple room service Breakfast will be provided, subject to government advice.
 

Oriental Club Express - Delivery Still Available

May I take this opportunity to remind Members of the Oriental Club Express which is available for delivery anywhere in the UK Mainland.   This premium delivery service brings a taste of the Club to your home, much needed in these turbulent times!  It is designed for a minimum of two people and has a duo of options - the Curry Express and the Western Express - from £37.50.  Specially curated wine cases are also available to order with your meal in partnership with Club Supplier - Hayward Bros. Wines, along with an opportunity to select a bespoke case from the Club's Cellar.  Overseas Members are most welcome to order to send to friends and family in the UK.
 
Please follow this link for further details and to order the Oriental Club Express.  Party boxes including special Festive and New Year Boxes are also available, and the service is able to cater for large orders to multiple households.  
 

Club Events Calendar

The Club will continue its popular On-line Programme with new events added regularly.  If you would like to attend any of these events please contact events@orientalclub.org.uk.
 
All Events at the Club with ‘in-person’ attendance are postponed until further notice. We will update Members in future communications.
 

On-line Boutique

Members are able to browse and purchase the full range of Club Merchandise via the website from the Oriental Club On-line Boutique.  Perfect for stocking up on Christmas gifts for friends, family and colleagues.  This service is designed for the convenience of Members who often enquire about the Club’s Collection and purchase items as personal mementoes of the Club, or as gifts.  
 
The Boutique is accessible here in the Members' Area of the website.  The Collection features a wide range of products from highly regarded, specialist companies including Bellevue Tea, Shipton & Heneage, Morvan and Noel and Musto.  It includes the Signature Oriental Club Tea Blend, the Luxury Bathrobe and Towels, the Velvet Slippers, Socks, Polo Shirts, Gilets and Club Cufflinks.   This service offers worldwide shipping - delivery is estimated at 5 - 7 business days for UK orders.  Please allow additional time for orders for delivery outside of the UK.  
 
The Club will continue to update Members as and when there are any changes to legislation.  I would like to thank Members for their support and good wishes during this period.  The safety of the Club's Members, Reciprocal Members, Guests and Employees remains of paramount importance to us.
