Community items, such as tea, sugar and condiments, are also kept in the Food Store.
The Food Store is a locked room on the ground floor accessible through doors at either end of the laundry corridor. Community items are on the wall adjacent to the entrance doors. Purchasable items are on the opposite wall, and all items taken from this side of the food store have to be paid for at the end of your stay.
Food Store keys can be found at the entrance to the kitchens in both wings. Children are only permitted in the foodstore when accompanied by an adult.
Complete your docket with the details of the Total DUE and the payment date.
Show this acquitted docket to your Lodge Captain who will note that you have paid for your purchases and sign your docket.
If you have not used the Food Store you need to let the lodge captain know that so they can complete their Food Store paperwork.
Lodge Captains will:
Explain the Food Store process at the start of the week as part of the lodge briefing.
Remind people to complete their purchases online and show the completed form to their lodge captain at the end of the week.
Remind people everyone needs to report on the Food Store usage to their lodge captain, even if they didn’t purchase any items.
The Club Food Store can only continue to operate if all food and drink is paid for. All guests are relying on everyone taking items from the Food Store to record their usage accurately. This is essential for the inventory to be a true reflection of the food and drinks available for incoming guests who should be able to check the inventory for essential items which they might otherwise need to pack in for themselves.
The inventory does not update until the items are paid for - if the stock count is low, there is a chance that the previous week's visitors have used the remaining stock.
It is not possible to "shop in advance" to reserve your food items - please don't think you can shop and pay in advance to be guaranteed the items will be available for you when you arrive.
