Thank you all for your continued support during this difficult time!
With Pubs now open and restrictions being lifted, please note some very important changes. The best way to stay up to date is to follow us on facebook. We will try our best to update this website when we can, but as we are sure you aware, we are extremely busy.
We have conducted some FAQ's for you so you understand what we are doing to be compliant and how pub life will be after opening.
WHEN WILL YOU BE OPENING?
We are officially trading again and even with all the restrictions lifting from 19th July, we have kept some rules in place for your safety. For now, we are still only allowing tables of up to 6 people indoors and tables of up to 12 people outdoors.
WILL I NEED TO BOOK?
Booking is not essential anymore but we still ask that groups larger than 6 people still book so we can monitor our numbers easier.
HOW LONG CAN I STAY?
You can stay for as long as you feel comfortable. However, we recommend no longer than 3 hours if you are sitting with people from a different household and sitting indoors.
WHAT SOCIAL DISTANCING MEASURES WILL I NEED TO ADHERE TO?
With the restrictions lifted there will be no requirement to social distance. However, we have kept the table layouts the same so that areas do not become too cramped and remain well ventilated.
WHAT OTHER POLICIES ARE IN PLACE?
Staff are trained and updated in all of our COVID-19 policies and procedures. This covers correct PPE usage and Hygiene procedures.
The one way system and table service is no longer in use. You may now order and pay at the bar. However, our staff will continue to wear masks and carry out a strict cleaning regime at all times.
WILL THERE BE TABLE SERVICE?
No. Now that restrictions are lifted we want to reintroduce service at the bar. We have had our policies and procedures approved by environmental health so know that we can still be providing a safe environment for you to socialise.
HOW MANY PEOPLE TO A TABLE AND CAN I SIT WITH MY FRIENDS?
The number of people to a table will depend on the size of the table and space available around it. At this time we are allowing up to 6 to sit together indoors and up to 12 people outdoors. However, please bear in mind that we only have limited tables outside and not all are undercover. We cannot seat more than 6 people indoors at this time.
WHAT CLEANING PROCEDURES WILL BE PUT IN PLACE?
We will have hand sanitising stations at all entrances and exits as well as on every table. Tables and chairs will be wiped down with appropriate cleaners after use. Glasses will be disinfected and washed in our glass washer after use. Door handles and toilets will be cleaned at least every 2 hours in accordance with HSE COVID-19 Guidelines. This will be more often during busier periods.
CAN I BRING MY CHILD(REN)?
Yes! Children (under 18's) are allowed on the premises until 7pm. Due to our licensing laws, the premises becomes OVER 18'S ONLY after 7pm.
WHAT ENTERTAINMENT WILL YOU HAVE ON?
Unfortunately, we have taken to decision not to have LIVE entertainment until the new year. This is such a hard decision but feel for the safety of customers, entertainment staff and our staff, this is the best course of action. However, we are able to show SKY or BT SPORT inside and outside on our new TV's. Hopefully it will not be too long before we can continue our Quizzes, Bingo, and Folk Nights.
WILL YOUR OPENING HOURS CHANGE?
Yes. We have shortened our opening hours until we find our feet again. Our opening hours are: Mon-Tue: CLOSED, Weds 4pm - 11:30pm, Thurs 4pm - 11:30pm, Fri - Sat 12pm - 12:30am, Sun 12-11pm.
CAN I PAY CASH?
Yes. Obviously, contactless or card payments are preferred but we acknowledge that a lot of our customers prefer pay cash. This will be accepted no problem.
WHAT ELSE DO I NEED TO KNOW?
The above should be all the main things you need to know. We hope this helps put your mind at ease about visiting us. Please bear in mind that every premises will be different and will have their own rules. If you have any questions then please do not hesitate to get in touch.
Please remember that we are here to help and want to make your visit as comfortable as possible. We will always try and cater to your needs the best we can.
Stay safe and we hope to see you soon!
