Coronavirus update

From Thursday 19th March we have made the difficult decision to temporarily close The Chocolate Quarter's restaurants and facilities to the public. We believe it’s our duty to protect our customers, residents and staff and to play our part in helping stop the spread of coronavirus.

This includes B Block Pizza, Somer Dining, the Spa and Gym, Tiger Lily, Figo / Figo Man, art and pottery studio. Relatives, however, may still visit family who live in the retirement apartments.

Please note that our show home is also currently closed until further notice.

For Spa & gym members, we will not debit your account with any further membership fees. Your membership will remain frozen until our leisure facilities re-open. We will reimburse you for any pre-payments of your membership subscriptions. Please email if you have any questions about your membership.

Thanks for your understanding at this difficult time.
