Hurray ! We can now re-open ( Saturday 4th July ).  The pub will be as safe as practically possible 

but the extra covid-secure measures mean that the service will be not quite back to normal, and the necessary limit on numbers means that we will have to restrict entry to regulars only for the time being. Food therefore has to be on a bookings-only basis, and once again, limited to regulars only. For now the food can only be from 16 July for Thursday and Friday nights due to operational reasons. It would be lovely to be back to normal and to welcome new people but these are exceptional times and I trust that everyone will appreciate that we can not allow the pub to be swamped at the expense of safety. Please tel Ips.310590 for bookings and please try not to message us in any other way as you will need a table confirmation. We will still accept cash as we would not expect for example to take a card payment for just one pint ! Stay safe etc – all the best, Patsy & Mark
