Our Covid-19 legislations

We are so excited to welcome you all back, we have missed you all! 

However as you can all understand there will be some changes to the way we operate which we have worked hard on over the last few months to keep all of our staff and you as customers safe.

* We encourage you all to book a table for food, 

inside & outside, to avoid disappointment. 

This will be a maximum of 6 people per table from 2 households

* The lead member of your party must provide contact details

* Our team will operate on table service only

* Social distancing must be adhered to throughout the premises

* Hand sanitiser stations are located inside & 

outside for you all to use

* Our toilets will operate on a 1 in 1 out policy 

with a lock on the main doors (we ask that if you 

visit with young children that you accompany 

them to operate the lock)

* Our toilets will also be cleaned by a member 

of our team every hour

* No standing room is available inside or 

outside, you must be seated at a table

* We have limited space available which staff 

will monitor, therefore when we are at full 

capacity, you may be asked to book for 

another time

* Children must be accompanied by an adult 

at all times

* All of our staff on duty have received 

COVID training

* Please be kind & patient with our staff they are all

working extremely hard,  

trying to keep you safe as well as others

* If customers do not comply to our guidelines 

they will be asked to leave


Thank you all so much for your continued support at 

this difficult time. 

We look forward to welcoming you all 

at the Yachtsmans Arms

What Our Customers Are Saying

Would just like to say a massive well done to the yachtsmans this weekend. All the changes dealt with brilliantly, food as amazing as ever and the staff worked their backsides off and got used to the “new normal” so quickly. The staff are a credit to you Phil and Nat and to anyone who voiced concerns about pubs opening again I would definitely say I feel safer at the yachty with the proper social distancing than I have felt anywhere else since all this started. Phil Nat and staff you are legends.
