Covid-19 Update

In light of the latest government restrictions when you visit, there will be a few more changes again. Regrettably, we're currently not accepting bookings from people who are from areas where local lockdowns or restrictions have been enforced.

  • 1. You must wear a mask at all times except when seated at your table. This includes going to & from the toilet and moving around the premise. Masks are available to purchase if you forget your own.
  • 2. It will continue to be table service only. Staff will be waiting on tables and taking orders. Please do not approach the bar when you have been seated.
  • 3. No more than 6 people at a table. Please do not move tables and chairs as these have been placed to comply with distance rules.
  • 4. We will be open from Midday until 10pm. Food will be available from Midday until 8pm. Last orders for drinks will be 9.30pm.
  • 5. All customers need to be off of the premise by 10pm. Residents can take any drinks to their rooms if ordered before 9.30pm
  • 6. As we have always done, tables will be sanitised between use and the premise checked/cleaned throughout the day.
  • 7. Please download the NHS Track & Trace App. Our QR posters will be on display throughout the premise for you to scan. If you do not have a smart phone, waiting staff will take your details before taking your order.

Please bear with us during this time & the changes that are being made. We thank you all for your support & custom and look forward to seeing you all soon. Tracey, Family & Team.
