Coronavirus Update for Customers

1st July - Bookings now being taken

We are please to inform you that we are now accepting bookings for dates from the 4th of July. We will have some limited spaces available for walk-ins but bookings are strongly recommended. We can seat tables of 6 inside the pub and 8 outside the pub but external tables can only be booked on a Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Booking slots are for a maximum of 3 hours per booking.

We will be serving food but on a much smaller menu, which has been designed to maximise the working space for our kitchen staff to keep them as safe as possible.

Please read the below guidelines before making a booking:

We have made plans as carefully as possible with the safety of our staff and customers paramount.  You will find that things operate very differently to the way you will be accustomed and we would really appreciate your understanding as we try to adapt and improve as we go.  Please respect the huge effort the team at the Rising Sun have put in to enable us to host you and follow the below guidance for everyone’s safety:

  • For outside tables, up to 6 people may meet from ANY household.  Inside, only 2 households (or support bubbles) can share a table. Please do not move any tables, as this may infringe on the distancing we have set up. Do not push tables together to make them bigger and do not stand up around the venue or gather at other people’s tables, all customers must be seated with their own booking party. The maximum table size available is 8 outside and 6 inside.
  • We regret that children (under 16) are not currently permitted during these opening stages. This is something we will keep under review.
  • Dogs are welcome but must be kept on a lead and you should not allow other customers to pet your dogs. Our staff have been instructed not to pet them either (which makes us very sad).
  • We will be able to accommodate some walk-ins, but to be certain of your table you can book a 3-hour slot here
  • There are sanitiser stations at the entrances, and throughout the venue. Please santise your hands before entering the premises and before entering any of the toilet facilities.
  • There are toilet facilities located in both sides of the pub and we have also provided additional toilet facilities in the car park. Some sinks and urinals have been taken out of use to follow social distancing guidance. Please use your common sense when moving to and from the toilet facilities, please do not queue on the stairs or across any walk-ways. The toilets are checked and sanitised regularly during the course of the day.
  • Please maintain 2 metres distance where ever you can, but always a minimum of 1m, and please apply common sense at all times. 
  • A host will greet you on entry and assign you to your table. In accordance with government instructions, the host will take down your name and contact number, which may be supplied to NHS Test & Trace upon request. This information will be securely stored and destroyed 21 days after your visit. 
  • Sanitiser spray and cleaning roll is available for you to clean your table before sitting down. We recommend that you do this.
  • For the safety of our staff and to comply with government guidance we have been instructed to keep all customers seated and not allow service from the bar.  We are taking all food and drink orders via an app, so you will need a smartphone or tablet.  Your food will be delivered to a collection point near your table, to reduce the risk to our staff posed by entering customer occupied areas.
  • The link to our app is www.risingsunapp.co.uk and there are QR (smart) codes available to scan in the pub.
  • No cash payments, card only please. We are not able to offer tabs.
  • You will be asked to clear your own tables to the collection point – NOT to the bar, please.  Staff will then clear away from these collection tables.
  • We appreciate many people are still not comfortable sitting in the pub so we are continuing to offer takeaway, the host at the front entrance will show you where to go for this.
  • In warm weather we may have an outside bar open as well, this will operate with a conventional bar queue, with 2 metre social distancing. Customers will still be required to remain seated at their tables at other times.
  • We reserve the right to ask you to briefly remove any face covering for the purpose of identification or age verification.
  • Anyone who does not follow the guidelines, behaves in a manner that presents a threat to the safety of other customers and staff, or otherwise becomes abusive or aggressive to any staff or customers, will be asked to leave.

24th June - Reopening Update

We are thrilled to announce that we will be reopening on Saturday 4th July. We want to make sure we are fully prepared to operate safely, so will be releasing more details in due course.

We can confirm we will be operating a bookings system but will not be taking these until we are satisfied with our planned seating layout, so as excited as we know you all are, please don't contact us just yet to make one.

We'll be sure to let you know when bookings are being taken.
