COVID-19

Following a full risk assessment we are pleased to be opening our doors again on Monday 6th July.  Please see key headlines we have put in place following our written risk assessment, with the view to keeping our staff, members and wider community as safe as we possibly can.

  • We will initially only open as a strictly members only club.  Our opening hours will be (updated in line with new restrictions announced in September) from 6pm during the week until 10pm, midday until 10pm on Saturday & midday until 7pm on Sunday.   
  • We will be collected names and contact details of the lead person visiting our premises, so that we assist the government with their test and trace system.  Details will remain confidential to staff only and will remain on site for 21 days, after which they will be destroyed. 
  • A one-way system has been introduced with directional arrows and barriers to assist - this includes separate entry and exit to the building.  As we have large premises we are asking our members to still follow the 2m guideline, with tables spaced out 2m apart.  This allows for a capacity of 13 tables in the main hall and 8 tables in the members room.  Initially both rooms will open as one big room to allow for the one-way system and to increase ventilation.  Each table can seat either 4 or 6 people.  There will be no standing - you must have a table in order to drink. 
  • Full guidance on social distancing measures and staying safe have been displayed throughout the club on posters. 
  • A system has been devised so that only one person can enter the toilets at any given time.
  • Hands-free hand sanitiser stations have been positioned at every entry & exit point to the building.  Our members will be reminded of the constant need to sanitise their hands on the way in and out of the building.
  • Screen guards have been erected on the bar.
  • PPE has been provided to all staff - and our staff have been fully briefed on the new guidelines and measures that have been introduced
  • A cleaning scheduled has been devised for continuous cleaning of touch points and surfaces in all public areas throughout our opening hours, including the toilets.
  • The bar person will also be continuously cleaning behind the bar whilst serving and pouring drinks.
  • There will be no darts, pool and fruit machine playing - however the jukebox and TV will be allowed, but the volume will be set to a reasonable level to ensure people can talk at normal levels. 
  • Unfortunately, with the exception of guide dogs, we have introduced a new rule of no dogs allowed.
  • Children are still very much welcomed, but they must still follow the social distancing guidelines. 
  • If a member continually ignores the measures we have put in the place they will not be served and will be asked to leave.
