Inns of Distinction and Covid 19

After ‘Freedom Day’ on July 19th we were delighted to be able to return to something close to normality in our pubs. In line with government guidelines we removed our screens, one way systems and our staff now have the choice as to wear face coverings or not. However we recognise that the risks relating to Covid 19 have not fully disappeared. We will continue to respect the wishes of any guest or member of staff who would prefer a more cautious approach to their visit to our pubs.

We continue to recommend table reservations via our online booking system. Please follow the link below. Walk in tables are also available, subject to table availability and we are now able to resume bar service and allow guests to be seated at our bar. We ask that our customers respect that other guests may wish to be cautious in terms of social distancing and the wearing of face coverings. Social distancing between tables can no longer be guaranteed, if any of our guests have concerns regarding this please contact us prior to you reservation.

We no longer require the scanning of QR codes or manually signing in to our venues in line with government guidance. Our hand sanitiser stations will stay in place and we encourage all of our guests to use these upon arrival and departure.

As the seasons change we advise all of our guests who plan to dine outdoors to arrive suitably dressed for the cooler weather. We cannot guarantee waterproof shelter in our outside areas.

We will continue to adjust our Covid 19 protocols in line with government guidance and at all times ensure that we provide the best possible service for our guests.

We look forward to welcoming you soon
