Our Covid-19 legislations

In light of the governments relaxing of the 

COVID rules from Monday 19th July 

Our guidelines are as follows:


* Please DO NOT enter our premises if you

are displaying symptoms of COVID-19

*You will no longer legally be required to wear

 masks or scan in using the track and trace system,

 however we still advise you to do so when visiting us.

*The feedback from all our customers has led us 

to continue with table service for the time being,

 as nobody likes to stop their conversations 

to go up and wait to order more

 drinks at the bar.

*We will still be operating a ‘wait to be seated’ 

system as we have found this also works better 

for the pub.

*Our staff have all elected to continue wearing 

their face coverings to keep both themselves 

and you as customers safe.

*It goes without saying we will still maintain 

the high standards of cleaning and hygiene 

that you are used to at the Yachtsmans 

and we would ask you to continue to use

 the freely provided hand sanitisers that are 

throughout the premises.

*As we are approaching the very busy summer 

months, booking is highly recommended to 

guarantee your table.

* Tables will be allocated a 2 hour time slot

due to limited capacity 

* We are operating a 20 minute 'no show' policy.

If you are running late for your table please

telephone us to let us know, otherwise your table

will be re-sold after 20 minutes.

* Please be kind & patient with our staff

they are all working extremely hard,

especially in hot weather


As always thank you so much for your continued 

support! And thank you to all our amazing staff 

for always working so hard!

Wishing you a happy and safe summer☀️

Thanks and regards

Natalie & Phil x







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.
