On Friday 10th July we will be able to open the Wheatsheaf and look forward to welcoming back all our customers old and new.
We are delighted to finally be in a position to reopen our doors however as we begin to navigate this new normal we find ourselves in, we wish to share with you some key changes to ensure the health & safety of our staff & guests.
In line with Government guidelines we have implemented strict new cleaning & sanitation policies, full details of which can be found on our website. Staff will be routinely monitored for any symptoms of Covid-19 & have been rigorously trained to comply with the policies set out & of course social distancing where possible.
To ensure the long term success of the Wheatsheaf we have re-evaluated our opening times. The bar & restaurant will no longer open on Mondays and Tuesdays, further details on this can be found in our Covid-19 safety guide or at the bottom of our homepage.
In line with Government guidelines, restaurant diners & drinks service must comply with our new table service only policy. It will no longer be possible to order a drink directly at the bar & we ask for your support to respect this regulation.
Our popular takeaway service will remain in place for customers who enjoy our food but are unable to enjoy the restaurant experience. Due to popular demand we have extended this service to five days a week from Wednesday to Sunday. Please refer to our homepage or Facebook for further details on our new collection times which have been amended to coincide with our restaurant.
In line with Government guidelines & adhering to the 1 metre rule, the layout of our venue has been updated by removing tables in close proximity. We have decided that we will not be re-opening our garden area until we feel it is safe to do so and the government issue more guidance Our front patio area will be open but please note table service only remains in place for this areas of the venue.
Where possible we kindly ask all customers to pay by credit or debit card to avoid unnecessary contact.
We are operating a strict booking only policy to comply with Government guidelines & more importantly to ensure a controlled flow of customers in a safe & friendly manner. We ask for your support & cooperation in this matter & we reserve the right to refuse entry for any guest who has not pre-booked.
Although we are known for our friendly hands on approach to service we will now be doing things a little further back where possible and keeping a safe distance whenever we can. This will of course be no barrier for the usual banter!
Our menus have been streamlined in line with our new focus to ensure the long term success of the business. All dishes will remain freshly prepared onsite from local produce, however the reduced volume of dishes available ensures the safety, health & wellbeing of our dedicated chefs.
Please take note of important signage across the venue. These guidelines are in place for the safety & protection of our staff & guests.
If you have any thoughts or questions in regards to our new practices or wish to offer feedback, please do not hesitate to call a member of the team who are happy to help.
We thank you for your continued support as we navigate this new normal in an effort to provide a safe & enjoyable experience at the Wheatsheaf & most of all we hope to see you all again soon!
