PLEASE. NOTE THIS IS WHAT IS HAPPENING FROM THE 14th of JULY until the 28th JULY
Weekly updates will follow as government guidance changes & confidence grows & we are able to offer more services in a safe and welcoming environment.
So here we go then - the new normal, whatever that is!
Firstly, myself and the team hope that you and those you love have managed to get through the last few months unscathed. We are indeed fortunate to have been “locked down” in this wonderful part of the world.
I have decided to swerve the “Boris Bustle” and operate the “ Sue Shuffle”. The well-being of the team here & customers are of paramount importance. With that in mind, I have decided not to open until Tuesday 14th July. I think it is wise to look & learn for a while - there are bound to be hiccups. What I can tell you is the following . Please note carefully.
We will be open from 11am - 11pm Tuesdays to Saturdays inclusive & noon until 4pm on Sunday’s The inn will be closed from 4pm on Sundays and will not reopen until 11am on Tuesdays. Thereafter everything will be reviewed almost weekly (hence the “shuffle” ) so we can react safely & responsibly to the environment.
We will ONLY be able to welcome those that have booked. Bookings will last for 2 hours. That gives more people the opportunity to visit. To book please call 01647 252394 between 11 and 4 each day except Sundays and Mondays until we reopen on the 14th. THIS IS THE ONLY WAY TO BOOK A TABLE. After the 14th you can call whenever you wish during opening hours. You will be asked for the name and phone number of the lead guest and we ask that you provide us with the names and phone numbers of those coming with you when you arrive. We are required to keep those safely for 21 days in case track and trace is needed. I assure you these details will be shredded immediately after the 21 days and no details will be shared other than if required by the government.
We will be maintaining the 2m rule.
The team will be wearing face shields.
The loo’s will be locked and a key given on request – thus ensuring distancing & hygiene measures are maintained.
There will sanitising dispensers at various points, however, you may wish to bring your own too.
We will only be doing drinks until the 28th July. ( see below, you won’t starve !)!
There will be a meet and greet in the car park and you will be shown to your table where your order will be taken and then you will be called to a collection point to collect your drinks when they are ready.
There will be sanitisation dispensers at various points but you may also wish to bring your own.
We ask that you do not move furniture & do not table hop. This may seem like a good idea after a couple of sherbets ! . 🤔 All visitors must be seated . NO FREE RANGE CHILDREN OR DOGS PLEASE 👶 🐕 Children & dogs must be contained within your seating area at all times.
Pizza Buona will be set up in the car park most days for you to order their fabulous pizza’s to mop up your drinks You can call them from your table or sooner on 07870 161470 or 07970 633378 and arrange a collection time.
When things have settled into some sort of routine we will begin doing a limited menu of locally sourced ingredients which will be magically created into delicious dishes in our kitchen.
We look forward so very much to welcoming you back to the inn And thank you for your cooperation with the above guidelines to ensure the continued safety of our customers and team alike. Please respect all our guests & team members.
We have missed you !
