COVID-19: Our New Normal

Working together to keep you safe

We are very pleased to announce that our Pubs will be back open from Friday the 10th of July, and our new take out menu will also be available from Thursday the 9th of July, with all our classic, premium and gluten free favourites to go!

With recent government guidelines we will be taking pre booked dining slots for lunch and dinner, giving all of our customers equal time and opportunity to dine with us again, running 7 days a week!  We will be offering 90 minutes for lunch, 120 minutes for evening dinner and 120 minutes all day Sunday. Please note we will be including a 10 minute sanitising procedure between bookings for your comfort – this duty will be undertaken by our designated cleaning monitor in busy periods, leaving our waiting staff time to cater for our guests needs.

For us to accommodate our guests and for all to have an enjoyable experience we will be taking bookings for:

Lunch from 11.45 to 2.45 (Monday to Saturday)

Dinner from 5.30 to close (Monday to Saturday)

Sundays from 11.30 to close

Please note, breakfast will now be served from 8am, Friday, Saturday and Sunday until 11am.

We will be still promoting our casual walk in policy, so please feel free to turn up and speak to our managers and they will be pleased to try and get you seated if our occupancy allows, even within our booking times, if we can accommodate. Maybe enjoy a drink or 2 in our pub gardens until a table becomes available! Outdoor dining will be walk in only.

Staff, PPE, Wellbeing & Cleanliness

With recent government guidelines now in place you can expect to see the following procedures when you visit us, our aim being to make sure your visit is as comfortable and reassuring as possible:

1. Bespoke sanitiser stations.

2. All staff members in full uniform including clear face protection.

3.  Staff temperature checked and logged daily for well being.

4. Social distancing awareness signage.

If you are a regular customer you will know we pride ourselves on the cleanliness of our pubs, with many customers commenting on this over the years. We only use a professional contract cleaning company that looks after all of our pubs giving the satisfaction that we can guarantee and the standards we and our customers expect.
