As we continue to prepare to re-open on 7th July 2020, we  are doing everything we can to make the pub safe for you and our team to be in but also to do the best we can to maintain the welcome and service we are known for.

The government guidelines (which we have published below) give some, but very few, definitive ‘rules’ On the whole each business is required to interpret the guidelines and apply them to their  own circumstances. We have done this, and have create the following documents which we have also published below:

  • Covid-19  Risk Assessment.
  • Summary of control measures.
  • FAQs

We will formally review our risk assessment every four weeks but we will also keep it under constant day to day review and update as necessary.

In order to minimise risk but also minimise cost when our revenues will undoubtedly be under pressure, we are implementing the following changes which we will keep under constant review.



We anticipate a significant drop in demand as some customers choose to stay at home. In order to minimise waste we have implemented a temporary menu. This menu is constructed to cover as many tastes as possible but we appreciate that some people may be disappointed  and we ask you the bare with us. The temporary menu can be viewed here. Our Sunday Lunch menu remains in place.

Opening Hours:

Whilst we work to re-establish our business, we are required to minimise contact between staff and customers. We also need to work to reduce running costs, as like most businesses, our financial situation is challenging. We have updated our opening hours on this site and posted them on Facebook. We can’t afford to change the metal signage outside so these will be out of date, sorry.

Quiz Nights & Entertainment

The government guidelines are very specific in that live entertainment – including quiz nights – are not allowed. As soon as this changes, you can be sure that Chris will be back on the microphone,  no doubt mentioning the Premier League in passing. Because we need to restrict movement and contact between people, the games machine and dart board will both be out of action.

Track & Trace

We and all other pubs and restaurants have been asked to support NHS track and trace by collecting customers’ name and contact number when they arrive. This is simply done when you log onto our wifi. As you connect to our network, you will be directed to a simple registration scheme.  In line with government and GDPR requirements, your data will be erased 21 days after your last visit. Please engage with this. We all need to do our best to support NHS track & trace.
