About Time is our Chestnut loyalty programme that enables members to earn points on purchases of food, drink and accommodation at our participating locations. For every £1 spent, 1 point is accrued. When the  500 point threshold is reached £10 in account currency is automatically added to the member's loyalty account. Currency rewards expire after 12 months if not redeemed.


To join About Time loyalty, members must be residents of the United Kingdom and over 18 years old. We will not be able to communicate with any guests under the age of 18 until they reach the appropriate age of consent. To sign up for a membership guests must do so online at  Points can only be redeemed once membership sign up is complete. Special offers, updates, and invitations will only be communicated via marketing emails to loyalty members or via the About Time app; therefore, marketing consent must be given during sign up to receive full member benefits. Without marketing consent, members can still earn points and receive rewards. To receive the £10 birthday reward members must provide their date of birth.


About Time memberships can only be registered in the name of an individual (not a company or a family) and only one membership may be registered in the name of an individual. We do not offer joint memberships.


Using Your About Time Membership


About Time members can earn points and redeem rewards at any participating Chestnut location. Please check your intended destination is a participating location before your visit to avoid disappointment. Newly acquired Chestnut locations may not participate in this loyalty programme initially.


Membership rewards cannot be redeemed in conjunction with any other offer, discount, or privileges. Rewards cannot be redeemed on Mother’s Day, Easter Sunday, Christmas Day, New Year’s Eve, or New Year’s Day unless specified; however, points can be earned on transactions/payments made on these days.

Earning Points and Redeeming Rewards


You can earn points for any transaction where payment is made at any participating Chestnut location, over the phone with our central reservations team, or via our room booking system, for room stays and food and drink purchases. Points can only be added when a unique membership number or QR code within the app can be provided when the transaction is made.


Points cannot be added to your account retrospectively. To earn points you must provide your membership number or QR code within the app at the point of payment.


You must have completed the sign up process to be able to earn points. Points cannot be earned against the purchase of gift cards, vouchers, tickets, or experiences. Points cannot be earned against purchases where in app or account reward currency is used as the payment type.


Points have no cash value. Points can only be earned as set out in these terms and conditions. Points are personal to the named member of the membership. Only one member can use their loyalty number or QR code to earn points in any one transaction. Points cannot be pooled or shared with other members or transferred to other members.


Rewards can only be redeemed once. Each reward has its own terms and conditions for redemption and its own expiry date. Reward expiry dates cannot be extended, and rewards cannot be reinstated.

If you sign up to About Time in your birthday period, your birthday reward can take up to 24 hours to appear in your account.


Platinum Loyalty Members


Members are rewarded with the Platinum membership when their membership lifetime spend reaches £10,000 or they are awarded this level at our discretion. To retain this membership level members must spend £5,000 or more in a 12 month period.


Platinum loyalty members receive a 10% discount on purchases of food or drink up to the discount value of £1,000 in a single transaction. Platinum members must present their membership number or in app QR code to receive this discount. Platinum members also benefit from all loyalty rewards and offers. Membership levels are reviewed regularly. Discounts and points can not be awarded retrospectively.


This discount cannot be shared with other guests or used when purchasing gift vouchers or gift cards, or when purchasing tickets or experiences. This discount cannot be used on Mother’s Day, Easter Sunday, Christmas Day, New Year’s Eve or New Year’s Day. This discount cannot be used in conjunction with any other offer, discount, voucher, or privilege.
