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/ On 27 August construction will commence on a roofed pergola over the garden patio. It will be heated and it will provide a sheltered, warm, al-fresco environment for drinkers and diners alike. We will then be able to move enough of our indoor furniture out onto the patio for us to make space between indoor tables for social distancing to be maintained. During the construction period there will be no food offered.

2/ We plan to change the way we operate to accommodate the new layout. Customers will be expected to order and collect their drinks from the bar and a queueing system will be set down. Customers will enter the pub via the side path and through the back door. Exit will be out of the front door. There will be screens installed over the bar for the protection of staff and customers alike and a one-way system past the bar and for the toilets will need to be adhered to.

3/ We will be serving food inside and out (including in the new heated pergola) and the menu will contain..... 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 not on Sunday evening. 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.
