Reopened 4 July, a couple of things for you to remember if you visit our pub
We haven’t got a booking service, it’s an ale house if there’s a seat you are welcome if there’s not your welcome to pop back, my bar staff will let you know at the door, be kind it’s not their fault I had to take out half the seating.
I’m not encouraging queuing as the path is narrow and busy, just pop back later.
The government has asked us to collect names and contact details to help if there’s another outbreak, no Mickey Mouse is not your name!!
We are trying to keep our pub safe for our staff and you so if we can’t remember your face(it’s been a while) we will be asking for photo ID with your address on.
Hand sanitizer at the door and in the loos please use it and please keep your distance in the pub I know you’ve missed your mates but let’s stay safe
Table service only just sit, chill and wait for us to get to you
Sorry, no sitting at my bar
Outside our seats will be smokers on right and non-smokers on the left
It’s all new for you and us so let’s work together and enjoy our pubs being back open
Take away available - if you want a beer collection text 07715106876 with your choice, how many pints you would like and a pick up time.
