Staying covid secure

The legal restrictions that we’ve all been living under have now been lifted as the government have decided that it’s time do so. Whatever your view on that, our aim is to tread the delicate line of starting to return the pubs ‘to normal’ whilst keeping our teams and customers as safe as possible. Gusto hospitality remains key to everything we do.

You will see a continued focus on ventilation, hand sanitisers remain and we’re still cleaning frequent touch points. You don’t have to scan the NHS Covid-19 app to enter, wear a mask or socially distance. Our QR code posters remain on display so you can check in if you want to and if you prefer to wear a mask when moving around in our pubs, you are welcome to do so, as are our team. Please respect our team and other customers. Do not visit us if you have any covid symptoms.

You can also book a table for more than 6 individuals or 2 households (subject to any group size restrictions already in place prior to covid). We’re starting to re-introduce some of the furniture that we took out last summer but are limiting our capacity compared to the ‘old normal’ for the time being. We will continue to offer table service throughout the pub as we have always done. However, you can now come to the bar to order and pay if you prefer. Please take a seat to eat or drink inside.

We have always taken cleanliness and hygiene very seriously and will continue to do so. We have carried out a risk assessment and our Staying Covid-19 Secure certificate is on display. We use Suma Bac D10 to sanitise which is effective against corona viruses. Your table is cleaned between each use. Payment is by card or contactless payment only. 

If you’re staying with us, rest assured that your room will be thoroughly cleaned as always. We’re paying extra attention to frequent touch points and ventilating our bedrooms well during the cleaning process. The contents of each tea and coffee tray will be entirely replaced for each incoming stay. Fresh milk is available on request, as are additional tea and coffee supplies.

Please be kind and respect our team, they are working really hard to make your visit enjoyable and safe. If you’d like to get in touch, you can e-mail us at
