COVID SECURE INFORMATION
Dear Valued Guests and Customers,
We are truly thrilled to be re-opening the doors to the Pickwick Inn at 12pm on the 4th July. We cannot wait to see you all!
These are strange and uncertain times for everyone so please cooperate with the rules we’ve had to put into place and be kind to our staff who’ll be working hard to keep you safe and will be operating under completely new circumstances. Please have a read through about how we will be operating:
We’ve undertaken a full risk assessment and implemented the Government’s recommended changes needed to keep our staff and customers safe.
If you feel unwell, it is imperative that you do not come to the pub. We can rearrange your booking free of charge.
We’re asking eaters and drinkers to reserve a table before arriving – please arrive at your allocated time and wait outside until called in (you may wish to bring a brolly)! We have a dedicated host and have spaced all bookings, so this should be a smooth process.
You will be able to join with one other household inside and up to a group of 6 different people outside. Larger families may be split over more than one table. Unfortunately, we cannot move tables or add chairs etc, this layout is to conform with designated space for other guests.
We’ll be operating a one-way system throughout the pub and restaurant – just follow the clear signage.
There will be no ordering at the bar at this time – it will table service only.
We will only accept card payments – contactless where possible.
Hand sanitiser stations have been installed around the pub and restaurant.
The play park will be closed while we conduct a full risk assessment (to be reviewed). The swimming pool for residents is also closed at the moment following Government guidelines – we understand this is up for review shortly, after which time we envisage a booking of time slots for residents only.
We’ll be offering an exciting and daily-changing reduced menu whilst we monitor these safety measures also Sunday roasts. This is for a limited number of tables in the bar and restaurant (booking essential). We will also be running daily BBQs on our sea-view terrace (weather permitting), slots can be booked 24 hours beforehand, or come on a first come, first served basis following strict distancing rules – we ask you to call from your car when you arrive. Please book between 10am-12pm over the phone 01841 540 361 – or email outside these times: firstname.lastname@example.org – NB: we are quieter in the daytime!!
We will need to record some basic details for everybody who enters the pub and keep these on file for 21 days to assist the NHS track and trace system.
Toilets will be one in, one out and cleaned regularly alongside regular cleaning of frequently touched surfaces throughout the pub and restaurant.
Safety screens have been installed at the bar and staff will be wearing face coverings. The restaurant patio doors will be open as much as possible (as will other windows) to allow maximum ventilation inside the building. Be prepared, bring an extra layer.
We’re really excited to welcome you back, it’s going to be a bit strange but we’re certain we can make sure you still have a memorable experience with us. We have some fab food, drink and of course, THAT VIEW!!! We’re so looking forward to finally pouring you that pint! 🙌🙌🙌
