Guidance on Rule of Six dining at the Ashiana Indian Restaurant at North Muskham

As of today, Monday, September 14 2020, the COVID-19 guidelines for socialising are changing. 

As always, we at the Ashiana want to keep you and our staff safe so here is some clarity as to how you can dine safely with us un the ‘Rule of Six’:


By law, we will only be able to seat a maximum of SIX people at one table, indoors or outdoors, including children of any age. 

Individual groups must not form larger groups with other diners.

However, this rule does NOT APPLY if you form a larger, single household or support bubble, which comprises more than six people i.e. a household of seven+ people. 


From Friday, September 18 2020, it is a legal requirement for the hospitality sector to take contact details from diners and store them for 21 days on behalf of NHS Test and Trace.

We will ask you for the name and phone number of one person from each household. If you are multiples households, then we will need names and numbers of each individual. 

Details will be kept for a mandatory 21 days before being securely destroyed. 

This is a legal requirement and we face severe fines if we do not comply, so please help us by providing your details when asked.


All of us at the Ashiana Indian Restaurant really appreciate your continuing support and loyalty. 

This is our ‘new normal’ for the moment, so please help us to help you, your families and our staff stay safe by complying with the new guidelines regarding the ‘Rule of Six’ outlines. 

We look forward to seeing you at the Ashiana very soon.
