These are the rules that currently apply to us here in Bewdley:
The following rules are subject to change and any decisions will be a minimum of five weeks apart, and will be guided by whether the government’s “four tests” are being met, including the vaccine roll-out going to plan, and no surge in hospital admissions.
12 April, 2021
Restaurants and pub gardens will be allowed to serve customers sitting outdoors – including alcohol; customers can meet in a group of up to six people from different households; a maximum of two households can meet to form a group of any size.
Unless a specific exemption exists, these must only be attended/used in line with the wider social contact limits at this stage – as a single household or bubble indoors; or in a group of 6 people or 2 households outdoors.
Outdoor areas at hospitality venues (cafes, restaurants, bars, pubs, social clubs, including in member’s clubs) can reopen, including for takeaway alcohol. These venues may allow customers to use toilets located inside. At any premises serving alcohol, customers will be required to order, be served and eat/drink while seated (“table service”). Venues will be prohibited from providing shared smoking.

We have done our very best to make sure our pub is Covid-19 secure, we have taken our time to clean from top to bottom and we would like it to stay that way. With that in mind, here are a few steps we are asking staff and customers to follow, to keep us all safe.
