In response to the Covid-19 pandemic, we have taken steps to ensure staff & customer safety. We are following guidance provided by the government and have undertaken a risk assessment. Tables are now spaced out with a minimum of one metre between them. Guests must use our hand sanitiser upon entry, as well as sign into our guest book or via the app. There is waitress service of all food & drink, minimizing contact between guests.
