NEW LEGISLATION – 1st OCTOBER 2020

How it will work from Thursday 1st October

Below is an idea of how it is going to have to be for the foreseeable future.  Please don’t think that we are being dictatorial or power crazy.  We are following government guidelines to provide you, your family and friends a safe environment to socialise and get together.  As guidelines change so will we.  Please bear with us.

It is difficult but please realise we are operating a 3-strikes and out policy.  If you breach any of the new rules, we will unfortunately have to ask you to leave.  This is for your own good as the penalty for failure to comply is up to £200 for any individual or £1000 for the venue.  Police, licencing and environmental health can access CCTV footage at any point as proof of non-compliance.  Just thought you had better know!!

If you are not sure – ask Mick or Mark

I have asked my staff not to engage in conversations with customers when serving or clearing tables.  They are not being rude, they are looking after themselves and you!

Glass collecting – we will do this for you

Language – please be aware that we have children and neighbours.  Please refrain from bad language especially when in an area that has children in it.  Similarly, when outside, please respect that our neighbours are entitled to a quiet life too!
