Corona Virus Statement
We are taking the spread of COVID-19 very seriously. Our number one priority is the safety and wellbeing of our staff and customers. We are focused on providing a safe and clean environment so that you can continue to enjoy our range of drinks and meals. We recognise that all pubs play an important role in local communities and we intend to stay open to support our town community.
We are staying well informed of the developing situation and are following the advice and recommendations from the Government, Public Health England and the World Health Organisation. At the present time, pubs and restaurants are allowed to operate and our tables are far enough apart to ensure people do not need to crowd together, thus helping with social distancing. Our staff have been trained in safe hygiene and cleaning practices and will continue to be stringent around these, by thorough frequent handwashing and extra cleaning of hard surfaces touched regularly by themselves and customers.
We have implemented a policy of using a fresh glass for every drink served, and these glasses are cleaned using a dedicated industrial washing machine. All crockery and cutlery is cleaned according to the Environmental Health Organisation’s regulations on washing to eliminate cross contamination.
To help minimise the spread of the virus, we are following the latest Government recommendations and asking any staff member with flu-like symptoms (continuous new cough, fever etc.) to self-isolate for seven to fourteen days, depending on their home circumstances. We can assure you that none of our staff have been abroad to any of the affected areas and we have confirmed with them that they have not been in close contact with anyone who has contracted the virus.
We would like to thank you for your continued support and we look forward to welcoming you to our family run pub.
