Hello Everyone

We are looking forward to welcoming you all back on Saturday 4th July! All going to plan Due to government guidelines we will be operating quite differently which I’m sure will get frustrating at times but we ask you to please be patient with us as we all get used to the ‘new norm’

We recommend that you book in advance even for drinking only and we will also be taking reservations for our outside areas (as everyone who does wish to visit us will need to be seated by a member of staff)

There will be no standing room allowed inside the Boathouse and just 2 till points at the bar where you will be allowed to quickly get served before you take a seat.

For the most part we will be operating a table service system which includes outside (yes it’s going to be fun)

We are now taking bookings by Facebook/email and Debs mobile but bare with us if you don’t get a reply straight away.

The maximum number of persons to a booking is 10 ppl and we are working to a smaller capacity Due to the number of chefs allowed at any one time so social distancing can be followed.

We are allowed a social distancing queue at the bar so we can go back to our original plan of no more than 5 persons waiting at the bar.

There will still be no standing areas inside the Boathouse (other than queuing and walking to the restrooms etc)

There will be some standing space outside but very limited therefore we are asking that for the most part you are seated by a member of staff to help control numbers.

We look forward to seeing everyone again and getting back to some kind of normalcy. All we ask is that you follow our safety guidelines to keep yourselves and others safe.

We will give a further update soon.

Many thanks for all the bookings already.

Stay safe and see you all soon.
