Note that these terms and conditions are in effect (in line with Government guidelines) as of the 2nd of November 2020.

As of Friday 21st May 2021, we now require credit card details to make a booking. We are implementing a £5pp cancellation/no-show fee on any booking which is canceled less than 2 hours prior to the allocated time slot. In dispute of any no-show fees, a confirmation e-mail of cancellation must be shown as evidence. Fees will not be reversed without this form of proof.

We will be running things a little differently and will be implementing a safety-first approach for Siberia that we require guests to familiarise themselves with prior to arrival. Through the assessment of our own risk and under the guidance issued by the Scottish government, we have to make you aware of the following conditions that will be imposed during your visit:

  • Enter via Belmont Street using current physical distancing measures in our waiting area
  • When queuing for entry please refrain from smoking and vaping to prevent the spread of the virus
  • We require customers to wear face coverings when not seated in the venue – if you are exempt from doing so please make us aware on entry, if you are unable to do so then we will provide you with a mask as a last resort. We appreciate the effort involved here and hope you will be able to comply
  • Our front of house staff will greet you and confirm your booking/ take your walk-in details
  • Bookings will be restricted in size for the time being to tables of 6 (as per Government guidelines) – this will be checked upon entry
  • Bookings will be given a 15 minute window for joining the queue. After the 15 minute window, the booking will be deemed as a no show and the table will be given away
  • At this stage also we will have to confirm names and contact details of all guests in your party, as set out by the First Minister. Your information will be stored in line with GDPR on our booking system.
  • Hands MUST be sanitised at point of entry, and frequently throughout your time with us
  • We ask that you follow the one way system throughout the building by keeping to your left
  • We ask that you remain seated at your table at all times
  • Do not move any furniture as it is positioned to facilitate safe distancing
  • Maintain the required physical distance at all times and follow all signage for instructions
  • Observe smoking rules of the area that you are seated in. If you would like to request a non smoking area, then please indicate and we can facilitate where possible.  If you have an internal table we will have a designated sheltered smoking area to the rear.
  • Our toilets will be available on a one in one out queuing system that you will be familiarised with signage and capacity
  • Maintain noise levels so as not to exceed a respectful volume and increase the chance of transmission to those around you – it is now also a requirement of the Scottish Government that background music will be at a responsible level of volume.
  • Place your order via table service.
  • We will be undertaking a strict regime of cleaning contact points (every 30 minutes), toilets and hard surfaces throughout the building.
  • Last orders for your table will be strictly 20 minutes before your departure time.

While we will aim to allow all tables to be with us for a maximum of 3 hours, there is the potential for this to be increased for evening bookings. Please indicate if you wish to do so by contacting us by email. Furthermore it seems there are a lot of duplicate bookings coming through if this applies to you we are afraid that we will have to limit all bookings to one two hour slots to manage the risk to our environment, we hope that you do understand our need to do this in the immediate term, It is hoped that we can relax this over time.


Queue management and a one way system will be in place, with limits (in line with capacity) for each bathroom. Hand driers will be out of use and paper towels will be available, 2m distancing floor indicators will be there for you to use to assist distancing. We ask that when going inside to the toilet customers use face coverings to protect others, and foot pulls have been placed on doors for your convenience. Toilets will be closed periodically throughout the day for cleaning. We trust that our guests will use their best judgement when using these facilities.


Will be Midday to 10pm (7 days a week) until further notice. Our outdoor area closes at 10pm (last order – 9.30pm).

Our kitchen will be serving food daily with last order for 8pm.

Our opening hours will remain variable as we adapt to our new trading environment, we reserve the right to close earlier than usual at our own discretion.


We ask all customers to drink responsibly and play their part in creating a safe environment for staff and other guests.

We advise that you read this thoroughly before coming to visit us in order to familiarise yourself and your group with our safety measures.

Furthermore, at this junction, we cannot facilitate guests who are under 18 in any capacity.  For the time being our disabled lift and access will remain out of action – as such we can allow access for wheelchairs at this time only in our main bar section.

Undoubtedly, we are transitioning from what has been an extremely challenging time towards a time where we begin to learn to live with the virus. As a local independent business, your support and feedback is what we live by. If you think something could be improved, tell us, and equally if you think we have gone above and beyond to cover every base and you are impressed, we would love to hear about this also. We have missed you all and can’t wait to welcome you back, but there will be things that we will need to adapt and change as we learn to deal with operating under our new guidance and conditions.

Any abuse of staff enforcing the guidance will not be tolerated and as such you will be asked to leave the premises, this will also the case for anyone not following the guidance as set out above.

Please note: discount cards and spree vouchers will not be in used at this time

Please note: at this time these terms apply with the inclusion of our standard terms and conditions. For example any customer deemed to be too intoxicated to enter the premises will be denied access
