Reopening Details

What a lovely sunny day, let's hope this weather continues into and throughout April. 

Our latest reopening is planned for Friday 16th April but, as you are probably aware, it is only for outside seating. Initially we are opening the following times:

Fridays 4 00pm until 9 00pm.
Saturdays 2 00pm until 9 00pm
Sundays 2 00pm until 5 30pm

Booking is recommended as seating will be limited. The usual social distancing measures apply which I'm sure you're aware of so I won't bore you with them now. However we will have several copies of the guidelines around the place when we reopen.

The main differences to the regulations this time are that every customer has to register for track and trace, either by scanning our QR code or signing in manually. Previously one person per group/couple could sign in.

There will be no standing allowed. When drinking customers must remain seated. 

Admittance to the inside of The Snug will be strictly to use the toilets and on a one out one in basis. Please remember, these are not our rules but the government's. However, failure to observe them could lead to a fine of up to £10,000 for us and potentially the loss of our licence.

The good news is that Mark, North West Pizzas, will be joining us offering what we consider the best pizzas we've ever had. He will be with us on the Friday and Saturday so no need to worry about cooking, just come along and enjoy top quality beer, food and company.

Initially we will be opening the following hours: Friday 4 00pm until 9 00pm Saturday 2 00pm until 9 00pm Sunday 2 00pm until 5 30pm These hours will be reviewed on a regular basis and will certainly be extended when we are allowed to welcome you inside again. Due to our location we are very limited, for safety reasons, as to the cover we can provide outside so we advise you to dress for the weather when joining us. We trust you are all well and are really excited about welcoming you back next month.

It is business as usual but as many of you know we are happy for people to take away cask beer, bottles and cans.

We know some people are wary of gathering in social groups under current circumstances and although we have yet to notice an appreciable drop in trade, we fully understand peoples' concerns, especially those with existing health problems.

With this in mind we are offering a new takeaway service.  Our 'kitchen' window, overlooking the car park, has now been designated our takeaway hatch, just like in pubs of old. Just tap on the window and we can serve you through the hatch to enjoy your favourite drinks at home.

We have a limited supply of takeaway containers for cask beer at present but are due a delivery of more containers some time today. If you have your own containers please bring them along for us to fill. You can also buy any of our craft and Belgian bottles and cans to enjoy in your armchair.

Please take care and heed the advice of the experts.
