We absolutely cannot wait to open our doors and welcome you all back to The Bentlands from Wednesday 15th July. Due to government guidelines we have had to make lots of changes to the business, so please read below if you are thinking of visiting us.
The safety of our guests and our team is paramount as we reopen our doors. We want to ensure everyone has a good time while adhering to government guidelines on social distancing.
Our capacity is limited as we have had to remove tables and chairs from both inside and outside. We recommend that you book in advance to ensure you can get a table.
We cannot take bookings for parties greater than six people (including children) and everyone will be limited to two hours at their table to ensure everyone has a chance to enjoy their visit. This will also ensure we have time to sanitise and clean each table and chairs between each use. Please do not book a table every two hours thinking that you will be able to stay all day, we will not be able to allow this to happen or put tables together for large groups.
The pub will look and feel different, so please do not expect tables to be in the same place as they were before, we will try our best to honour any requests.
You are welcome to join us for drinks, please see our host to be seated.
Government rules state that everyone must have a chair to sit on when inside and outside. We cannot allow groups in smoking shelters or standing at the bar. Please understand that these government guidelines are for everyone's safety and cannot be ignored.
We are unable to book any tables outside and we may or may not open our garden and patio daily, weather permitting. There is no guarantee of a table inside if the weather takes a turn to the worst.
At the moment, our priority is for our team and our guests to feel safe and secure, so please respect our team and the government guidelines.
Having said that, all of these guidelines and changes are only short term. The quicker we abide by them, the quicker we can get back to normal.
We look forward to welcoming you all back to The Bentlands very soon. There may be a few teething problems and limited availability of some products as we get used to this new world. Please be kind, stay safe and have a great time with your family and friends.
Best wishes Jackie, Becky, Lucy and The Team.
