We Are Open

The Army and Navy Club is now open to all members and guests.


Following the news that as of Saturday 17th October, London will be in Tier 2 (which effectively adds no household mixing to our list of restrictions), we wish to outline what this means for the Club and its outlets.

We will be in contact with everyone who has a reservation to check what they want to do, and to let them know about the new rules.  We will do so for new bookings at the point of reservation, confirmation and, if necessary, on arrival at the Rag. We will do everything to remind people of their responsibilities and ask that members support us in remaining compliant. We are open and ready to look after you in a safe environment. Please do make sure that you are coming to us as a single household. In cases where there is a reasonable doubt, please don’t be offended if we ask.

We remain your home from home and our extensive measures and SafeStay programme are in place to give comfort. We hope to see you soon (with face covering in place!)  and please do keep on supporting us as you have done over the past few months. 

The safety and security of our members and staff remains our highest priority. We are doing everything we can to ensure your safety and provide maximum flexibility as the situation around COVID-19 continues. The Club has developed a “SafeStay” programme to introduce a new standard of cleanliness and disinfection, ensuring members and guests enjoy an even cleaner and safer stay with us.

Developed with experts from BSI cleaning system and trusted brands for safely disinfecting surfaces, the SafeStay programme builds upon the Club’s already high standards of housekeeping and hygiene, where hospital-grade cleaning products and upgraded protocols are currently in use.

SafeStay Includes:
Extra disinfection of top 10 high touch areas in guest rooms
Increased cleaning frequency of public areas
Guest-accessible sanitising gel at entrances and high traffic areas
Reduced paper amenities (like menus, pads and guest directories) in rooms
Enhanced cleaning & other changes to buffets, in-room dining and meeting spaces
OC1500 Natural Cleaner machine implemented to sanitise all areas of the club.
Enhanced Team Member safety and wellbeing with personal protective equipment and enhanced training and protocols
Response team activated to provide around-the-clock assistance at the Club and prepared to act swiftly should there be a suspected case of corona virus on the premises
