Our inside restaurants are now open too with one metre plus distancing between tables.
Please keep to social distancing rules and wash your hands at the sanitiser stations provided.
Table service only for orders and payment. Food and drinks will be dropped at a designated service area/table for you to collect. Pre order and payment in advance via phone is greatly appreciated if possible. There is no-one allowed to sit or stand at the bar at present.
Disposable menus and condiments are used.

The toilets are accessed from the rear entrance from the car park for outside customers and from the corridor to the front of the hotel for those sitting in.
We have implemented a tab system where you take a tab from the hooks on the sign at the entrance table and hook it on the external toilet door. You must return the tab to the hook on your way out. The toilets are essentially unisex at the moment to make the queuing system fairer and simpler. Only one person in any toilet at any one time and one person in the corridor at any one time please.
We have hand sanitiser in addition to the usual soaps and hand towels as well as the hand drier. Toilets will be half hourly sanitised by staff.
