So after all the challenges of 2020, for the Hospitality industry it seems they will continue through 2021.
Firstly we would like to thank all our customers for their support during 2020 and their willingness to return as we re opened earlier in the year, and their patience with us as we figured out ever changing systems, always with the aim to provide the best service we possibly could.
We are incredibly fortunate that the pub has been busy since re opening in May. We are incredibly fortunate to have a fantastic and exceptionally hard working team that have returned from furlough willing and able and happy! We have also managed to recruit for this summer so there are some new faces about.
It has not all been plain sailing though and with the exceptional circumstances of this year in mind we have made the decision to split our service on the week days. We will no longer serve food between 3 and 5pm Monday to Friday. This is a temporary measure, and all day dining will return on Monday 6th September, and will continue on Saturdays & Sundays throughout.
All our decisions, on our service, staff structure & menu design are based on the premise that we want to provide the best service we can, the best and most consistent food quality we can, and a happy and settled team who will be able to continue to deliver to our customers day in day out.
COVID SAFETY – With the end of regulations from Monday 19th July we will no longer require staff or customers to where facemarks when moving around the pub. We expect a bit of both to happen – both amongst the team and amongst our guests. The majority of the pub is well ventilated, with open doors and windows in this lovely weather. We will still provide sanitiser around the pub and at entrances, and we have always offered table service throughout the pub and will continue to do so. You may order a drink at the bar if you wish. We will continue with all cleaning procedures that came in to place last year as we first adapted to this new world.
ROOMS – From Monday 19th July we will be showing our guests to their rooms so we may help with their check in. We are also happy refresh your room during your stay, but if you do not wish us to that is fine as well. If you are booked to stay with us we ask that you contact the pub via phone or email to book a table.
VOUCHERS – Any vouchers that were currently valid including previous extensions will have their 6 month validity re started from 17th May. This means you will have plenty of time to visit us in the future.
Wishing you all the best, Becky & Ash
