WE ASK YOU TO READ THESE GUIDELINES PRIOR
TO YOUR VISIT
Firstly, if you or any of your party are showing any signs of illness, please do not enter, please go home and self-isolate
Follow the one-way system to help avoid unnecessary contact with other people
Keep your distance from people not in your party or “social bubble” (recommended 2 metres where possible)
Using the outside area is recommended, but if seated inside please keep to the social distancing advice
Once seated, please do not switch to another table and please do not move any furniture
While we have the one-way system to limit close contact with others, we do require your extra vigilance when using the toilets. Please use common sense and wait, suitably distanced, if there are already people using these facilities.
Our pub is an adult environment, but if your visit includes children, they must always remain seated with you, they are not permitted to run around the garden or premises and must be supervised when using the toilet
Dogs are welcome, but please keep on a lead
Wash or sanitise your hands at all opportunities to do so
Most importantly always keep your common sense and respect for others intact —we’re trying our utmost to operate a safe, friendly and welcoming environment and you will be asked to leave should we feel that you or any member of your party may be jeopardising that at any time
The Angel Inn Yarwell - UPDATE REGARDING REOPENING - Issued: 30 July 2020
PLANNED REOPENING ON WEDNESDAY 5 AUGUST
We are hoping to restart our Angel offering from the evening of Wednesday 5 August – from 5pm for drinks only (on our first day).
We look forward to welcoming you back into a little a bit of normality! It will be an evolving process to find what suits our “new normal” so we ask for a little bit of artistic right as work through our service and offering to meet the new demand (we just hope there is one!).
PROPOSED NEW OPENING TIMES:
Subject to change at any time
Note: We operate a zero tolerance policy towards d*ckheads!
The Angel Inn Yarwell - Update about reopening – update 26 June 2020.
As a small, privately-owned, independent pub we have needed to wait until government guidance has come out to ensure that we reopen correctly first-time round. This would help us avoid unnecessary costs, additional losses as well as ensuring the paramount safety of our both our staff and customers.
You can imagine that the last few days this has caused the odd (many) domestic debate here with the two of us having initial opposing opinions: one feeling the pressure on the "eager to please" side, with what we “ought to do/expected to do” listening to those that tell us that “you HAVE to open on the 4th”
The other having a more pragmatic approach: ensuring we are equipped to adhere to strict safety standards and limiting the risk for both staff and customers as well as the huge financial risk that we face in said adherence as well as re-stocking the pub for what is, at this stage, an unknown demand.
The virus is still out there – there will be many, many people not yet ready to socialise in a pub environment; on the flip side, it may be a euphoric demand – thus potentially putting people at risk. We just do not know.
We have concluded that we are going to wait for the 4th of July to pass, see how things evolve and learn from the industry and the larger chains and those that are prepared to or can afford to take the risk before making any further decisions.
We have taken the time to be involved in several online forums and it seems many freehold, small, independents are taking this stance, which helped reach and substantiate the decision to wait a while longer.
Our emphasis has always been on atmosphere, so we are hoping that the results continue to improve so that we are able to re-open as close to being the social hub, for which we are renowned, as we can.
We hope you all understand our reasoning behind us not opening straight away. It is not an easy decision to make but one we feel is best. We will of course keep you all informed via all social media mediums as soon as this changes, which of course we hope not to be too long.
“FOOLS RUSH IN WHERE ANGELS FEAR TO TREAD….” ?
In closing, we thank those of you that have continued to support us during lockdown - we have been "entertaining" twice weekly with our quizzes and have managed to gain some great new supporters!
We have also been overwhelmed by the number of thank messages and even dropped off gifts in this respect, it has been extremely humbling, albeit unnecessary! We are just doing our bit to keep our unique pub atmosphere alive in some way, shape or form!
Take care everybody – we once again want to reiterate that is has not been an easy decision to make and be assured that we cannot wait to be back in service.
We appreciate your patience and understanding during this difficult time.
Nick, Di and Team
