Social distancing

We have to limit the number of people allowed in and must insist on no standing outside of marked sections (unless in queues for toilets), sadly once our tables are taken we will be considered full

We are taking bookings for our full opening hours

You are all aware of the social distancing rules.  Indoor gatherings are limited to members of 2 households or support bubbles, outdoor gatherings are limited to members of 2 households or support bubbles or a maximum of 6 people from any number of households. 

We have marked table perimeters on the floor in compliance with social distancing rules and request you do not move furniture out of these marked sections.

Customers with dogs will be required to keep them on lead and controlled at all times

Customers with children are responsible for ensuring they too comply with the social distancing rules

The main entry/exit, garden and unisex toilets at the garden end will have one way doors for entry & exit.  The gender specific toilets and terrace have 2 way entry/exit and we ask you respect social distancing when using the facilities

Keeping our customers safe

We have invested in hand sanitising units around the pub and encourage customers to use these or wash hands regularly, especially when arriving

We will have dedicated entrances and exits and request all customers adhere to signage, this minimises the risks associated with pinch points and allows free flow of foot traffic

In order to minimise contact we will be operating table service for all customers.  We are working with the Round app which you can download from the Apple or Play stores, this allows you to order and pay from your smart device directly to our bar team and be delivered to your table by our table service team.  If you prefer not to use the app let us know and you will receive regular table service from the team and can pay through contactless or card payment.  We will not be accepting cash until further notice.  You can be assured our wireless C&P blocks will be sanitised after every use.

Our team will be issued with PPE including face masks that they will be required to wear during their shifts, in addition they have been trained to wash their hands with increased regularity and enhanced cleaning at table turnaround will ensure that our customers can be secure all surfaces have been cleaned to a high standard upon their arrival.

Per the latest instructions all our staff will wear a face covering while working, we also must insist that customers wear a face covering whenever they are not seated, this mean to enter the venue and when going to the toilet etc.  We are also only able to offer table service, and will offer payment at table as much as possible, we ask that when paying at the bar everyone complies with social distancing leaving plenty of space for other customers to pass easily.

Test & Trace

The latest government instruction states all venues must ensure every visitor is registered for NHS Test & Trace.  NHS will keep a temporary record of customers (& staff/contractors) for 21 days to trace the movements of those testing positive for COVID-19 and advise anyone at risk of infection so that they can take appropriate action.

We recommend anyone coming to the pub downloads the NHS COVID-19 app, this allows entry quickly as you scan a venue specific QR code in the app on your device and are automatically registered.  For anyone who does not have a smartphone we are still using pubtrace and can register your visit this way.

Live sports broadcasts

With the return of sport "behind closed doors" we are of course aware that lots of people will be keen to watch these events on TV.  Whilst we will be showing events including Premier League games we have to insist that customers observe social distancing rules and reduce risks of virus transmission by refraining from shouting/cheering and limiting volume to discourage shouting/raised voices.  Anyone not observing these rules will be warned once and, if behaviour occurs a second time, will be asked to leave.  This is for everyone's safety and our continued ability to show these events depends upon being able to do so safely.

Outside spaces

We are lucky to have a variety of outside space, some of which is suitable for all weather use.  We will take bookings for outside tables/space in compliance with social distancing.

We all know the British weather can be.....unpredictable.  As such if you book a table outside that becomes unsuitable due to weather we will make every effort to move your reservation to one of our outside covered areas or to a table inside, however will not be able to guarantee availability if you take your original reservation and wish to change after seating to a different area
