Hi there

We do hope everyone is staying safe and well. This new variant, Omicron is absolutely galloping around and both Alan and I, along with 6 of the staff have now had it. All satff apart from two, are now testing negative and back to work and all of us have taken PCR tests also.

For us its been like a cold and does clear up quicker than the original Covid which most of us had 21 months ago. At least now, so many of us will have some extra natural immunity for the next 6 months hopefully.

Many of our customers have had it and are getting it, along with the rest of the Country, so we are back to sanitising on arrival and expecting people to be sensible. Ideally we would ask people to take a test before coming and to arrive in a mask and use when moving around the pub or Bistro to help limit the spread.

We will be carrying on with our plans for New Years Eve but will be limiting the pub to just 40 people, so we are not over crowded. This is a ticket only even which is £20. There will be a DJ and a buffet and tickets are available from the pub, or you can call and secure yours with payment over the phone .

The Bistro is just the usual 7 tables and there a 3 tables left. We will have party music and a buffet with Champagne at midnight and the cost if £25. This is not a ticketed event you just need to secure your table with a deposit.

We have also decided to close New Years Day so sorry to anyone who was hoping to come along, but we will be back open for Sunday Roast as usual on the 2nd. Booking as usual is advised.

On Wednesday 5th George will be back with his New Year Quiz, so book your tables soon if you would like to join us.

We wish you all a healthy and happy New Year and thank you in advance for your understanding for any cancellations we have had to make
