Thank you to everyone who has responded to our request for your views on our intentions to continue to implement Covid secure measures, despite the relaxation of all mandatory measure as on 19th July. The response has been overwhelmingly in favour of retaining our existing hygiene and distancing measures; take for example comments on our recent Facebook post to this effect. So, while Covid cases continue to rise we shall continue to operate with the Covid secure measures that have served us well since reopening after the most recent lockdown. Therefore when visiting as a hotel guest or diner we shall continue to request that you sign in using the NHS app, wear facemasks when moving around in the presence of other guests/diners and follow the one-way system we’ve successfully operated over the last two months. In the restaurant and bar, it will remain table service only; our staff will continue to wear masks when serving customers and practise regular hand washing; and we shall continue to space tables in the restaurant to provide one metre plus distancing. For diners, tables will be sanitised prior to use, and we shall continue to provide glasses, cutlery and condiments only after you have ordered and to meet individual diner’s specific requirements. Thank you for your support over these very difficult Covid afflicted times and we hope you’ll continue to feel safe and secure while staying and/or dining with us.
