Coffee lovers can pick up freshly roasted coffee, other hot and cold drinks and cakes to go at 200 Degrees Coffee’s Flying Horse Walk shop in Nottingham, which reopened on Tuesday 26 May

Opening seven days a week for takeaway service only, 200 Degrees will be serving its signature freshly roasted coffee as well as its full range of hot and cold drinks and a selection of pre-wrapped cakes and sweet treats, ideal for those who are still working in the city or for passers-by enjoying some daily exercise.

To fall in line with social distancing regulations, a limited number of customers will be allowed into the shop at any one time and floor markings will be in place to help customers move around the shop safely. In addition, there will only be two members of staff working behind the counters which have new Perspex screens in place and payments will be cashless only, either via card or the digital 200 Degrees app.

Other safety measures will include recording the temperature of the 200 Degrees team members each morning, team hand washing every 20 minutes for 20 seconds, and hand sanitiser supplied for both the team and customers in the shop.

Co-founder of 200 Degrees, Rob Darby, said: “We are so pleased to be reopening our popular Flying Horse Walk shop, our first ever 200 Degrees premises, for takeaway service! We’d like to thank everyone for their continued support of 200 Degrees during these unprecedented times.

“We are looking forward to welcoming back our loyal customers and seeing new faces who are looking to grab a cup of our well-loved coffee, as well as other hot and cold beverages and cakes to enjoy on the go. The decision to reopen the Flying Horse Walk shop was due to the fact that it is close to our Meadow Lane roast house HQ and has a strong takeaway trade normally. It’s in a good position for people right in the heart of the city centre to safely grab a coffee on their lunchbreak or whilst out walking through the city.

“In the last few weeks, we have reopened our Nottingham Carrington Street shop which serves customers going via the station or strolling along the canal, and we also opened our Lincoln shop and our Birmingham Colmore Row shop in the heart of the city’s commercial district yesterday.

“The safety of our customers and team is always our main priority and due to the current situation, we have taken all the necessary steps to ensure government safety guidance is strictly adhered to. We see these gradual shop reopenings as a positive first step towards reintroducing our offering to the public, and will be looking at opening further shops and growing our food and drink takeaway options in due course.”

Both the Flying Horse Walk and Carrington Street shops are teaming up with Nottingham-based company Doughnotts this week, and from Wednesday 27 May until Saturday 30 May, takeaway handmade luxury doughnuts will be available alongside 200 Degrees’ offering of hot drinks and pre-wrapped cakes.

The Nottingham Flying Horse Walk shop is located at 16 Flying Horse Walk and will be open for takeaway service Monday to Saturday 8am – 4pm, and Sunday 10am – 4pm.
