PLAN A SAFE & DELICIOUS POST-LOCKDOWN REUNION
The Olive Branch is perfect for safe & relaxed family gatherings and household reunions from May 17, and larger groups from June 21.
With social distancing now even more important, our private dining room – The Barn – really comes into its own. You can arrange a gathering in here on one table as one household plus your support bubble (or more on separate tables – see below). Perhaps you're looking to arrange a festive family get-together, or maybe you want to dine with friends who you've been looking forward to seeing for months.
A variety of options
The Barn is usually for 11-20 people, who eat around our large table. From May 17 the COVID legislation allows you to dine as a maximum table size of six, as long as social distancing between table 'bubbles' is observed. We can accommodate up to three tables of six in the Barn. So, we could set up several tables suitably far apart, allowing you to eat all together in The Barn socially distanced.
From June 21 (at the earliest) in line with the Government Roadmap, larger parties may be allowed. We are now taking bookings for parties of up to 20 in The Barn for dates after June 21. We hope it will be a time to celebrate safely in larger groups and to make your occasion even more special there's an option to add a silent disco – speak to one of our team for details.
The relevant government legislations will need to be adhered to, which are happy to guide you through over the phone if you have an enquiry, and on the day.
Whatever you require, we'll have a member of our team look after everything you need. The Barn is a beautiful room to eat in – it's a renovated cow barn with whitewashed stone walls, exposed beams and hand-made oak-framed leaded windows.
Exclusively hire Beech House
To spend more time with your loved ones, or if you are travelling far, why not stay with us? You can hire Beech House exclusively for your gathering. Our luxury accommodation opposite the pub has up to six rooms available, so you and your clan could enjoy a walk in the afternoon before dinner (or explore our paddock), then sit down for our award-winning food & drink. Later, retire to your room and finally get up to enjoy breakfast, with the charms of Rutland on your doorstep.
