Covid-19 Update

Re-opnening on Saturday the 31st October, Halloween!

After careful consideration and consulting many of our neighbours and regular customers, we are going to reopen on this coming Saturday the 31st, just in time for Halloween in the village.

Even though the latest restrictions mean that people cannot just pop in for a drink (alcoholic at least), we have been hard at work making changes to the menu and planning more offers that we think will be too tempting to turn down!

We’ll post more info in the coming day about each offer, as well as drop some teasers about new offerings that will be on our menu, so watch this space and see you all at the the weekend!

Government announcement 16 October

From Saturday 17 October, the whole of Lancashire is in Local COVID Alert Level Very High (Tier 3). This is the Government’s highest Covid alert level for areas with a very high level of infections.

What does Tier 3 mean?

Being in Tier 3 (Very High) means nobody is allowed to meet socially with anyone outside their own household or support bubble. Unfortunately this makes it impossible in practice for us to offer a viable service as a pub, or as a restaurant where groups of people can enjoy themselves together.

Clearly these measures are necessary to protect us all, and we hope they will have the desired effect in reducing the level of infections and saving lives. Nothing can be more important than that.

Meanwhile we will do everything we can to protect the future of our business, our family and our staff, so we can reopen safely when restrictions are relaxed.
