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

to keep all of our staff 

and you as customers safe, as well as abiding 

by the laws set out by the government:

* Please DO NOT enter our premises if you 

are displaying symptoms of COVID-19

* We encourage you all to book a table to 

avoid disappointment. 

This must be a maximum of 6 people per 

table, or two households, this includes children

* Face coverings must be worn when you are 

not seated at a table (arriving at our pub,

going to the restrooms & exiting our pub)

* Tables will be allocated a 2 hour time slot 

due to limited capacity 

* All members of your party must 

provide contact details or scan our code 

with the NHS app. This is now the law!

* 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 be cleaned by a member 

of our team every hour

* No standing room is available

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.
