Sunday Lunch

This will continue as normal but the legal restrictions on purchasing drinks will apply.

Your continued support is absolutely critical to the business. We really need you to come in, buy a meal and have a drink with that meal. We also require you, as Members to abide by the law and Covid-19 regulations to ensure the health and safety of other Members and to "do our bit" to reduce the infection levels in the County. All pre-existing Tier 2 regulations still apply.

Thank you so much for your support, co-operation and patience – it is really appreciated in this difficult time.
