Pub Re Opening News


We have made a few changes to the way we work which will assist us all in staying safe at this time.

Please take time to read through these which can also be found on our website.

We will ask everyone who arrives to the pub to wait at the door for one of us to take you to your table. We have implemented a one-way system for arriving and departing the pub and this will be explained as we seat you.

We will ask you to sign into the track and trace website-www.venuetrace.comto assist the local health authorities should we have a localised outbreak of Coronavirus.

If you have booked,we will take you to your allocated table and would ask that you stay at this table for the duration of your stay.

We will initially take bookings for a maximum of 2 hours. You can of course book for less and if you decide you want to stay longer than 2 hours then just ask us and we will see if we can still accommodate you bearing in mind later bookings.

If you have not booked,we will do our best to get you seated as soon as we can or advise of a likely waiting time.

We will not be taking bookings for outside tables due to the vagaries of the weather and must point out that if you want to sit outside we will of course allow you to but if we are full inside and the weather takes a turn for the worse we will unfortunately not be able to move you inside.

We hope to have an app available shortly that will mean if seatedoutside you can order from this and we will bring your meals and drinks out to you. The tables outside will be numbered to assist with ordering and delivery of items.

Indoor tables can be in groups of up to 2 households, including support bubbles and outdoor groups of 6 people or less can be from any number of households. Outdoor groups of 7 or more should be from no more than 2 households or support bubbles.

We will operate a service at the table system for both food and drinks and bring cutlery and condiments out with your food. Tables and chairs will be cleaned after each customer leaves before we sit again. Staff will also be on hand to sanitise touch points and regularly washing their hands.

Tables and chair are spaced out in line with the regulations so please don’t pull tables together or move chairs as this could impact on the social distancing measures.

We will continue to take cash payments but as with many places we would prefer the use of cards with contactless available up to £45.

We have temporarily stopped newspapers and board games as well as any local leaflets and dog biscuits to help avoid extra touch points.

Dogs are still welcome but they must be kept on a lead at all times whether indoor and out and we will have water bowls available.

We would still like to welcome younger ones to the pub but please keep them at your table and assist them in using the toilets or sanitiser stations.
