Temporary Closure Following the government’s closure of pubs on Friday night, we had a plan. We’d hoped to offer a groceries collection and hot food take-away service. We wanted to continue to help our suppliers, customers and our community.We tried to do that today. However, we realised we were not sufficiently well set up to do that safely. Your welfare and our team’s welfare is of paramount importance to us and the best way to slow the spread of this virus is for all of us to stay at home, this evening the Prime Minister has confirmed that.We will remain contactable by email for as long as possible. Ben will be at the pub occasionally to ensure it is secure, and to help the local community if needed.These are exceptional circumstances and our decision has not been made lightly.We have managed to retain all our team and after 20 wonderful years we will be back stronger and better as soon as possible.Best wishes and stay safe.
