We are a hard working Family run pub since 1986 and have welcomed you into our Home for all those years 🙂
Along with so many others, we have had to change the way we run our pub due to the present world crisis.
So to begin with ….we are pretty nervous about starting up again. Its been a real rollercoaster ride and the loops haven’t finished yet! As you can all appreciate not only is this pub our business but its also our family home. So getting ready to open up again has taken some time to ensure that we have made it as safe as possible for you our customer but also for us as a family. We have risk assessed our business in line with the current government guidelines and COVID-19. In return we ask that if and when you decide to visit our pub you ask yourself a few questions.
Have you any symptoms of being ill?
Have you been in contact with anyone with symptoms or confirmed COVID -19?
Have you been to an area or country that has high infection risk?
If you have said yes to any of the above, PLEASE DO NOT VISIT.
If your answers are no to these questions here is a little info on how to navigate the pub! If you decide to come for a drink it will be table service only. For food we recommend that you book a table. We aren’t taking booking for drinks and it will be a first come first serve basis, so we encourage you to ring ahead to find out how busy we are. We will have the garden and new terrace (as we have nicknamed it) always open unless extreme weather, and then areas inside. (the regulations are indoors 2 households, outside 2 households or up to 6 people from different households). We have had to reduce and limit our seating, but on arrival you will be welcomed and guided to places to sit. There will be no standing at the bar.
All entry to the pub is to be made via the main front door only. The back door will have no access as this ensures that the corridor is for access to the toilets only. The toilets are now one in one out.
As many places are now encouraging, we are also recommending contactless payment.
For the time being we are saving all floor space we can for good social distancing so ask you not to bring dogs……… But in all honesty we just don’t know how its gonna work so the best thing to do is just phone up and ask when it come to dogs and we will be fluid !!!
We are looking at starting food from Wednesday 22nd July and you will need to make a booking for this service. Look at our hours to find out more.
So thats it for the moment. We have more info on the Whats New button ………oh and just be patient and kind to us and others 🙂
Everything is going to be very different for the small countryside pubs, and how we move forward is very unknown and uncertain and we are relaying on you too to respect the changes in place and practice good social distancing and personal hygiene.
So if you are travelling by foot, car, bike, tractor, horse or steam engine, you are all once again very welcome to rest and re fuel as many have always done 🙂
health and kindness to all.
