Covid 19 information

Covid 19 has made a massive impact on the hospitality industry & pubs like ours have had to adapt & implement many new controls, systems & procedures to protect our staff & customers.


FACE MASKS - all customers will be required to wear a face mask / covering when at the pub. Once sat at a table to eat and drink the face mask / covering can be removed. When going to the toilet or getting up from the table for any other reason the face mask / covering MUST be used.


Customers will be required to register their arrival at the pub by scanning the NHS track &Trace QR code whcih is on the poposters OR sending 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 & is now required by the law. NO exceptions will be allowed.

We will have limited space indoors due to social distancing of 1m+ to 2m being required between tables. Entry to the pub will be controlled from the front door. Please be patient if you have to wait for entry to buy your drinks.

Bookings will be taken for the inside tables set aside for diners in the main section of the pub.  Bookings can be made online here >>>>>>>>>>>> 

Maximum size for tables is 6 people from one household / bubble as per Tier 2 Covid regulations.

At busy times customers will be asked to limit their time to a maximum of 2 hours to allow other customers a chance to come to the pub. This applies ot diners & drinkers. 

The Picnic Tables on the car park will be on a first come first served basis & limited on numbers.

Food orders will be placed via our Vine Inn APP 

Drinks orders will be taken by staff at the table 

Any Children will be counted as 1 person (irrespective of age) & must be kept seated at all times.


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.

But 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.

Our Covid 19 Risk Assessment can be downloaded below & lists the actions we have taken as well as the systems & procedures we will be implementing as we look forward to reopening on the 4th July 2020.
