First of all this "new norm" is as new to us & the staff as it will be to our customers & we will be working very hard to make the pub a safe & enjoyable experience for everyone.
Please remember that we won't have all the answers straight away & whilst you may not agree with some of the new "rules" we would ask that you respect & adhere to them whilst at the Vine Inn.
Our staff are not experts in Covid control but we will be doing our very best to apply common sense & the "rules" for the benefit of everyone so please don't ask us to turn a blind eye, move tables around or allow people to stand at the bar.
Customers will be required to register their arrival at the pub by text message BEFORE being served. Details of the number & details to text will be on signs at the door. This is to assist in any follow up for track & trace.
