DINE AT DOME FOR RESTAURATEURS
Hospitality industry has changed and restaurants as we know them might not be coming back for while.
Restaurateurs need to provide safe environment for diners to comply with new social distancing regulations. Guests need reassurance that it’s safe to eat out again.
Restaurants are less busy and the owners need to find a way to minimise the cost and streamline their operations without compromising on the quality.
After weeks of lockdown many hospitality businesses are strapped for cash, with little money to invest in protective solutions.
Safe and unique dining experience at your restaurant
We provide restaurant owners with a free, turn-key solution to create a positive and exciciting dining experience, in line with social distancing regulations and without making any investments on restaurateurs’ part.
Helping hand in adapting to a new realityDine at Dome paves a way for restaurant owners to a more predictable revenue (bookings made in advance) with higher-margins (set-menus and booking fees) and creates a positive buzz around the restaurant (safe place, high standard, agile approach).

WHAT DO THE GUESTS SAY?
Truly magical setting
We celebrated my mums 60th in one of the domes. It was a lovely and unique experience, the setting was truly magical! Will definitely visit again and certainly recommend to friends and family. Thanks very much for a great evening.
Heidi Wildmanvisited Dine at Dome @ The Lancaster Arms, Desford, UK
Absolutely loved it!
Had a lush evening with the girls at the weekend in one of the pods. Really nice atmosphere especially as it got dark with all the fairy lights around. The food was lovely too! Would definitely recommend and come back 🙂
Alice Turnervisited Dine at Dome @ Tequila Jacks, Cork, Ireland
It felt very safe
We dined in one of the domes, as we have a vulnerable baby at home so wanted to be extra safe. The dome was very warm and we felt so safe and away from everyone else. They are aired out between guests and wiped down from the inside too. The food and service was excellent too. It was a great experience. I would highly recommend it.

A very special night
Really loved the idea of having dinner in a dome. It was our wedding anniversary and I wanted something different and it certainly was. The domes are so cosy and include a heater and a speaker so we could have our own choice of music. Also great service and lovely food, thank you!

PARTNER CASE STUDY: THE WILLOW TREE, BOURN
Our cooperation model proves to be very successful with restaurants, pubs and hotels that already partnered up with us.
With our marketing help, The Willow Tree Bourn, a Cambridgeshire gastro-pub, received nearly 1.000 dome bookings, resulting in over 3700 additional covers in less than 12 weeks (even despite Covid restrictions in place!).
And because these are all pre-paid bookings, no-shows are not existent and the cancellation rate is very low.
“The booking response has been incredible. The domes provide people with an extra sense of comfort at this time, as well as bringing a very magical dining experience to The Willow Tree. We’re super pleased with the result and our cooperation with Dine at Dome.” - says owner Shaina Galvin
Shaina and her team started with 3 dome units and we soon scaled up to 6 pods to meet the demand.
