AA Covid-19 confidentGood to Go logoWe’re over the moon to be serving you, our much loved customers again, and our team are raring and ready to welcome you.

In line with Government guidance, we’ve made some changes in the way we work and serve you. But don't worry you’ll find our food as delicious as ever, our drinks still perfectly poured and our welcome as social and genuine as it’s always been.

What to expect

To make your visit as comfortable, enjoyable and safe as possible we have made the following changes. We have been incredibly thorough in our planning and preparations, and remain reactive to Government and industry guidance updates.

  • Table bookings: 

    To comply with Government guidance, our seating capacity is limited and social distancing is in place. Therefore, table reservations are essential to avoid disappointment.

    INDOORS: up to two households can be seated together, but must continue to socially distance at 1m+ from both the other household (if applicable), other customers and our teams.

    Indoor table reservations are crucial. This can be done by telephoning 01502 723109, or you can book online for single household tables up to 6 people here.

    OUTDOORS: up to six individuals from different households can sit together, but must continue to socially distance at 1m+ from each other, other customers and our teams.

    Outside tables cannot be reserved, as we just can’t trust the weather! If you have booked an indoors table and would prefer to sit outside, just let our team know on arrival.

    When capacity allows, we will find tables for guests who haven’t booked in advance, but this remains at the discretion of the team as they maintain a safe place for us all.

    For all customers, we will require the contact details for the lead host of each table and will keep these safely on file for 21 days in order to assist NHS Test and Trace.

  • Food ordering - You’ll be able to view our menus and order food and drink online, our team will also be around to help, suggest suggest and take your order.

  • Arrivals & check-ins - You’ll be welcomed on arrival and shown to your table or checked into your room. We’ll keep a 21 day record of your visit to support NHS Test and Trace if required.

  • Social distancing - Our capacities are reduced and only a certain number of people are allowed in the property at any one time to help you navigate your way around safely.

  • Cleaning - You’ll see our team wearing masks and gloves where required. You’ll see lots more hygiene measures in place to keep our gorgeous pub clean and safe. For staying guests, some soft furnishings and accessories have been removed from your room. If these are important to you, we can easily arrange them for you.

Given the changes implemented by Adnams to keep us all safe during Covid-19 and the reduction in VAT, we have revised our prices accordingly.

We reserve the right to change these prices at any time and particularly if the rate of VAT increases again from mid-January 2021.

Please note it is a legal requirement from 8th August to wear a face covering in all public areas. 

We’re extremely grateful that you are considering visiting us. We want everyone to enjoy their visit, to feel safe and as "normal" as possible. We’ll do everything we can to make this happen for you and ask in return that you do the same for our teams, other guests and the wonderful communities that we live and work in.

We look forward to welcoming you soon.

With best wishes
