Cornwall’s St Moritz Hotel & Spa hotel has turned social distancing on its head with its Anti-Social Club private dining experience. Set to launch on July 4 the new dining concept will consist of 16 private dining rooms, with a maximum of 96 covers that means guest can dine-out while keeping with-in government social distancing rules.

Mixing elements of private members clubs, private dining rooms, beach clubs and summer pop-up restaurants, the Anti-Social Club will feature multiple dining times, and clear guidance to ensure the two metre rule is met at all times.


This “Anti-Social” element is bubble dining ethos that has been designed so each dining room can be served using a central atrium via a set of hatches, that keeps diners and guests apart.

The UK’s first purpose-designed and built socially distanced hotel restaurant is the brainchild of founders Hugh and Steve Ridgway, and the St Moritz Director of Restaurants Jonathan Domé, the Anti-Social Club, who says it surpasses government rules on safe dining while providing individuals, couples and groups a unique dining experience right on the Cornish coast.


It’s not just natural beauty to look at, the revamped St Moritz has interiors by Cornish agency Absolute, while the Anti-Social Club itself will take its design inspiration from the white art deco architecture of the hotel, adding subtle twists from the Miami colour-pop palette.

St Moritz Hotel & Spa intends to re-open all the hotel rooms, self-catering apartments and villas, as well as launch the initial Anti-Social Club summer pop-up restaurant, on July 4, giving you several weeks to practice your [anti] social skills.
