COVID-19 Safety

Keeping Everyone safe

We just wanted to let you know about a few changes we’ve made, which we hope you’ll find reassuring in these times, so here’s a little summary.

Social Distancing:

Please respect yours and others personal space by maintaining a social distance where possible.

We will be asking customers to wait at the door for a member of the team to take you to your table, and to sanitise your hands on the way into the pub. The reason for this is so we can take the time to explain how things work and to also keep an eye on the number of people we have in the pub at any one time. This is also the reason why we’re encouraging bookings only, even just for a drink at the moment. Table bookings will be for a maximum of 2 hours to enable us to sanitise between the table/chairs between bookings

We have set our maximum table size 6 for the moment (this is to include children, with room for highchair/pram) to allow us to have enough space for everyone.

When we do start to accept walk-ups, this will be done a first come first serve basis and dependant on us having tables available, as we want to try to avoid queuing wherever possible  You would be advised of how long the table will be available to you and will be requested to provide contact details (1 per group), unfortunately if this is not provided you will not be able to dine/drink with us.  Payment for drinks will be required upon serving.

Cleaning

We want to reassure you that there’s regular cleaning going on in the pub;  Our team will be washing their hands/sanitising before and after serving each table.  We will also be sanitising ‘touch points’ regularly throughout the day and evening. The tables and chairs will be cleaned after each customer. At every step, we’ll be following the highest of cleaning standards throughout the pub and in the kitchen.

Table Service

We’ll do our upmost to keep a safe distance where possible when taking orders and serving your table.

You’ll notice some changes to the way we’re laying the tables. To reduce the ‘contact’ with cutlery, These will be brought to your table on a sanitised tray for you to help yourself , as will your drinks.  The same goes with the salt and peppers, which will be sanitised after every use.

We are operating a strict table service only system, the bar service points will not be in use.

We ask that customers remain seated at their reserved table during their visit, unless using the restrooms or outside space.

 Space between tables

We wanted to reassure you that care and consideration has gone into spacing the distance between the tables and positioning of the chairs, which has resulted in us dramatically reducing our capacity.

Menus

Menus will only be used once and destroyed/recycled afterwards.

Bar service

As much as we love people around the bar, please resist the temptation to pop to it, we’ll look after you at the table.  The bar stools have been put away for a while.

Toilets

Due to the positioning of our toilets, we have a made a few changes which we will advise you about on arrival.  They will be on a one in one out system  Please try to avoid queuing, but if this cannot be avoided, please maintain a social distance from our staff and other customers as much as possible.

Payment and Tips

To reduce the handling of cash where possible. We kindly ask you to use contactless wherever you can. We will still be accepting card payments and cash where necessary. Card Machines will be sanitised after each use. If you would like to leave a tip, please ask a team member to add it onto the bill total when paying.
