Along with so many others, we have had to change the way we run our pub due to the present world crisis.
We are now into April 2021 . We are only doing our local take away service. It is a very difficult time for so many and the hospitality industry has been hit hard and like so many feeling a bit bruised. Time will heal and as the days weeks months pass we will just keep adapting.
As for April, the Government road map guidance has stated that Hospitality venues can serve people outdoors only from the 12th, here at the pub we will be taking each day as it comes as it will be weather dependent. On the days we do takeaways and if the weather is kind we will look at opening up the front terrance for drinks only. We only have limited space so if we do open up when we are at capacity we will have to turn customers away 😦 As we have already said this is possibly going to be a spontaneous decision and until we get closer to the date we will not be able to commit any more at this time, but wanted to let you in on our thoughts and we just need to work it out day by day week by week, and sometimes with the weather hour by hour !!!!
A long time ago ………At the beginning back in July 2020….we were 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 it is also our family home. So when we were getting ready to open up again we took some time to ensure that we made it as safe as possible for you our customer but also for us as a family. We risk assessed our business in line with the current government guidelines and COVID-19, and keep reviewing it daily. At the moment we are operating under lockdown regulations which means that we are only able to do local take aways. We are looking ahead now we are into 2021 and will start to rebuild and time will heal. Things have changed and we won’t be running at the same level that we once did, it will take some time to get back to some form of calm for us and many others. We hope that the service we will be able to provide will fit into your weekly planner and hope to see you all soon.
We want to thank soooooo many of you for all your kindness and support in these times, and for all those that have been organised over the past months and read the web site, given a pre order and just generally been informed….you all get a Golden acorn 🙂
Everything is going to be very different for the small countryside pubs, and how we move forward every day is very unknown and uncertain and we are relying on you too to respect the changes in place and practice good social distancing and personal hygiene. So when we open again, and 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.
