New Ways Of Operating

AUTUMN CHANGES

New Opening And Cooking Times PDF

As the days become cooler it will become necessary for us to allow customers back into the pub but, of course, this has to be done with everybody’s safety put at the front of our list of priorities. With this in mind we have set down the following plan: -

1/ We are delighted to have now completely covered and enclosed the patio area at the rear of the pub and have installed heaters. This means customers will now effectively be able to sit "in the garden" without getting cold and wet. In the evening the thousand fairy lights make it a charming "fairy grotto

2/ The fire is now burning, we are back to our usual menu and tables have now been spaced apart for social distancing safety. We now come to your table to serve you and, although this is hard work for us, we hope we can use it to enhance your experience with us. We ask customers to wear masks only when moving around the pub and we ask you to adhere to our one-way system. Other than that (and the rule of 6) we are nearly back to normal. Hand sanitisers are sited around the pub and track and trace registration is required.

3/ We will be serving food inside and out (including in the new heated pergola). The menu will contain most of your old favourites but may remain a little restricted because of social distancing restrictions in the kitchen – please bear with us on this.

4/ Sunday roasts will return from September 6 but, just to start with, you will need to book these the day before at the latest. Roasts will cost £11.00 with a child’s meal costing £6.00. Only children which can be guaranteed not to run around and break social distancing rules will be admitted.

5/ We will not be opening until 4pm on Mondays and Tuesdays but we will be serving food and drinks lunchtime and evening on every other day but no food on Friday and Sunday evenings. From now on, we will remain open until 9pm – as long as people remember to maintain social distancing when they have had a drink. Anyone failing to do so will be asked to leave.

6 The “Snug” bar will be reserved for seniors only. By that we mean over 60s and anyone else who has been sheltering. By doing this we hope to maintain an environment where more vulnerable customers will know that, if they feel bold enough to come back to the pub, they will do so in the company of people who share their concerns and who have been as careful as they have.


THIS IS NOT EASY AND WE WILL UNDOUBTEDLY GET A FEW THINGS WRONG AT THE START. PLEASE GIVE US ALL YOUR FEEDBACK AND HELP US TO RETURN TO “NORMALITY” AS SOON AS WE CAN. THANK YOU FOR BEING SO PATIENT WITH US DURING THESE TRICKY TIMES.
