COVID-19 Update

Updated: January 2022

Throughout these challenging times, we hope we have been able to adapt to the ever-changing circumstances, trying to strike the right balance between prioritising health and safety whilst delivering the best visitor experience we can.  We  continue to do our best to make a visit to us safe, comfortable and enjoyable for all and would like to confirm that we will be continuing with the following COVID related systems:

As of 30th November, in line with Government and Public Health England advice, face coverings will be required for anyone entering the building (unless exempt on medical grounds), and throughout the building except for in the café and bistro, as these are hospitality settings.

The Cafe and Bistro: The current distancing of tables in the Café and Bistro will be unchanged and table service will  continue throughout.  For  current menus  please click here. Booking is strongly advised, whether you are intending to have a meal or just a drink. Bookings can be made by calling 01969 621146, emailing [email protected] or completing a booking enquiry form.

If you are hosting or attending an event, please see the government website for up-to-date information on COVID pass requirements.  At present, our bars and entertainment must finish no later than 12.30am, therefore COVID passes are not required as standard.
