Whilst we are all aware of the impact of COVID-19 we wanted to let you know what we have been up to behind the scenes and how we plan to keep you safe on your visit. Our Team have all been busy training & retaking there food hygiene certificates specifically looking at ways to reduce cross contamination and sanitising surfaces to ensure we are safe. Our glass wash has been serviced & all glasses have been thoroughly cleaned & sanitised. Our cutlery & plates have all been sterilised & will continue to be after each use. You will see that our tables will be looking a little on the empty side you will be provided with cutlery, condiments and napkins once you have ordered & drinks will be brought with coasters this will allow us to dispose of the napkins & coasters & sanitise everything between guests.

On entering the pub please access through the front porches this will ensure that we can guide you to a table even for the garden. We have directional signs showing you how to access the building & we will leave as many doors open as the weather will allow to allow air flow through the building.    

The government have issued guidelines which will help keep you, other guests and our team safe whilst visiting our pub. The guidelines are:

  • Only visit the pub if you feel well

  • On arrival Please sanitise your hands
