1 – Confirmation of booking policy
Below are the steps we take to confirm a booking.
(1) Send an email confirmation upon booking.
(2) Send a second email the day before the booking to confirm the table.
(3) Send a text message using a messaging service on the morning of the booking from 9am with a prompt for the guest to reply (Y) or (N) if they wish to cancel the booking.
(4) Finally, make a phone call to anyone that has not confirmed via the above.
After these 4 attempts, if the table remains unconfirmed, we may release it on the day.
2 – Cancellation and no-show policy
We kindly ask that any cancellation to your reservation be made no less than 24 hours prior so that we can manage our services. For no shows or late cancellations, you will be subject to a charge of £10 per person that will be applied to the credit card on file.
Tables will be held for up to 15 minutes from the time it is booked before cancellation.
3 – Requested booking policy
Please be aware that this is an enquiry only and is not confirmation of booking.
As we are following the government guidelines the largest reservation we can currently accept is for six guests from no more than two separate households.
If your enquiry is for more than six guests your details will be passed on to the team but until we receive further guidance from the government we will not be taking group reservations. If restrictions are eased, we will be sure to update all our guests via our social media pages and Mezza newsletter.
For any reservations where we are fully booked at your requested time your details will be kept up until the reservation date. If we receive a cancellation for your selected date and time, we will contact you via phone call at least 24 hours before your chosen time to see if you would like to confirm your request as a reservation.
For any further information please contact the team directly at the site.
