At the Bell, we are working hard to keep our team and our customers safe. We have implemented even higher standards of hygiene in order to create a safe environment to work, drink and dine in.
We have deep cleaned our pub prior to reopening and have introduced more frequent cleaning schedules with sanitisers that are certified Covid killers. Every table is thoroughly cleaned at the end of each guest visit and you will see our team wearing visors or masks and using gloves in order to protect you and themselves. We have introduced a one way system and request that guests from one table at a time use the toilets. We encourage contactless payment to avoid handling cash and the limit has now increased to £45. We’ve also started table service in the garden and courtyard areas.
We we are now closing at 10pm in line with government guidelines. Face masks/coverings are mandatory on entering the premises. This also includes moving around the pub, ie going to the toilet, outside for a cigarette and leaving the premises. We have introduced measures on social distancing and have a one way system in place for entering/leaving the premises. All food/drink is strictly table service. Hand sanitising stations have been fitted throughout the premises and are to be used frequently. We will ask you for your name and contact details for the purpose of track and trace, and also have a government Covid app QR code to scan. We ask all our guests to be respectful of these above policies.
The following are a few points we ask guests to be aware of when booking with us:
These guidelines will help keep us all safe during these testing times and we hope you will support us as we work towards a return to normality.
Judith and all the team at the Bell, Hardwick
