As we are now in a prolonged time in tier 2 and all the restrictions that imposes, Christmas will be limited to one household only coming to the pub and New Year celebrations are cancelled along with the rising cases of Covid we have taken the decision that Christmas Eve will be our last day open for the time being.
If we remain in tier 2 we will close until reopening on Friday February 12th, if we are downgraded to tier 1 we will reopen earlier, and, of course, if we go to tier 3 we will be closed anyway.
Updates will follow as changes are made by government.
This is a really awful time for all hospitality businesses having lost four and a half months of trade but we feel that this closure will be best for our customers, staff and our business and we are really looking forward to opening with some degree of normality in the spring hoping that early March will see us return to a seven day trading week with far fewer rules and regulations that have made pub life so difficult.
We wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a much better new year, but above all else please keep safe and well.
