 Here are some of the extra measures in place to keep you and us safe:


☀️ Social distancing in place of 2 metres.


🧴 Sanitisers are available at entry, on the main wall and at the toilet area.  


🚺🚹 there is a one way system in place for the toilets with a one in one out policy.  There are hand sanitisers at point of entry and exit and must be used.  There are also antibacterial wipes available.  


⚠️ There is signage throughout the premises advising customers of our procedures.  If anyone has any concerns please raise directly with the staff who will do their best to address appropriately.


📖 when you arrive you will be required to leave your party contact details which will be held on file.  You can also 'check in ' on our Facebook page - if you are not asked please volunteer your information


🍷 When visiting for just drinks, please observe the one way system, through the front door and out the side door.  Payment will be required preferably by contactless card.  


🍽 Ordering food and drinks? Please find a table, staff will take your order, and this will be brought to you. The menus are laminated and will be sanitised after each use. Again payment by contactless card will be taken by the staff


🛑 All tables are sanitised in between sittings. We have 7 tables outside, which seat 8 folk so we can have a maximum of 56 people in the garden. Please respect this and we politely ask you to not stay on your table longer than 2 hours.


The estuary wall is another option and again be mindful of the 2 metre rule and passing traffic


🍅 All sauces and vinegars will be in disposable sachets.


🍸 All glasses, plates and utensils will be disposable to start with and you will be able to dispose of them in marked bins after use.


😷 Where required, staff will have suitable PPE.


🐶 Dogs are of course very welcome but must be kept on a lead at all times.


🍺 Due to reduced production and restrictions on supplies/deliveries we do not, at this time, have all the bar stock that we usually have in relation to draughts. 


☎️ We are not taking reservations for the beer garden, bar or snug areas - please take a vacant table and await service.


Reservations for the Lounge and Harbour Room will be taken but wait times will be longer as we prioritise guests in the garden, bar and snug areas first.  


Our space is limited and we must ensure guests in the high traffic areas are dealt with as quickly as possible to ensure safe social distancing and safety of our staff serving them. We hope you will understand.

🔑Closing times will likely be flexible.  


Thank you for your cooperation on this, any questions please ask. If you come and find you have a suggestion that might help everyone - please tell us
