Welcome back!

Thank you for all of your support in these ever changing times! We are pleased to be able to welcome you back to The Church Green, in a safe and secure environment, with a few positive changes in place as you may have noticed.

We are also delighted to announce the opening of The Deli at The Church Green – where you can enjoy a taste of The Church Green and more, from the comfort of your own home.

The Deli is open Wednesday – Sunday, we are really excited to see you there!

Please note that in line with recent government guidelines, The Church Green has changed it’s opening hours, and will now close at 10pm daily.

Our Changes:

Social distancing
Much as we could all do with a hug, please respect yours and others personal space by maintaining a social distance where possible.

We will be asking customers to wait at the door for a member of out team to take you to your table, and please sanitise your hands on the way into the pub. The reason for this is so we can take the time to explain how things work and to also keep an eye on the number of people we have in the pub at any one time. This is also the reason why we’re encouraging bookings only, even just for a drink at the moment.

Indoor gatherings should be in groups of up to two households (including support bubbles). Outdoor gatherings of 6 people or less can be from any number of households. 

At busy times, those without prior bookings may be asked to queue and as much as we’ll try our best to get everyone a table, it may not always be possible, in order to keep everyone safe.

Cleaning
We want to reassure you that there’s regular cleaning going on in the pub; all our crew will be washing their hands every twenty minutes and sanitising ‘touch points’ every half an hour. The tables and chairs will be cleaned after each customer. At every step, we’ll be following the highest of cleaning standards throughout the pub and in the kitchen.

Service at table
We’ll do our upmost to keep a safe distance where possible when taking orders and serving your table.

You’ll notice some changes to the way we’re laying the tables. To reduce the ‘contact’ with cutlery, we’re placing the knives, forks in napkins and setting up the table after you have ordered. All condiments will be served to you in individual sachets.

How to order
You’re now able to order your food and drink at the table. All you need to do is hover your camera over the QR code on the table to view our menu and start ordering. Ensure you charge your phone up. Or a member of our staff will happily look after you at the table if you’d prefer.

Space between tables
We wanted to reassure you that care and consideration has gone into spacing the distance between the tables and positioning of the chairs.

Menus
Menus will only be used once and recycled afterwards. Alternatively, you can use our QR code to view the menu.

Bar service
Much as life usually revolves around the bar, please resist the temptation to pop to it, we’ll look after you at the table.

Cashless and Tips
To reduce the handling of cash, we’ve gone ‘cashless’. We kindly ask you to use contactless wherever possible. If you would like to leave a tip, there’s now an option to do so when you’re paying your bill.

Little touches
The little touches – may not be quite as prevalent just now. Things like the newspapers, board games, dog biscuits, leaflets – we’ve popped them away for the time being, we hope you understand.

Toilets
Toilets will be regularly cleaned and numbers visiting them at any one time will be restricted.

Children and dogs
Much as they like to, please don’t let them wander. Climbing our tree is also temporarily out of action.

Government Track and Trace Scheme
We will ask for contact details from a member of each household as per the Government steer to collect information to ‘track and trace’ if needed.

Our fabulous new patio area
Our outside tables are available to book. Ordering outside, will be via the QR code on the tables, simply hover your camera over the code and away you go. You can order all your food and drink and pay as you go. Nice and simple.

We also respectfully ask that you don’t move tables around, they have been positioned with thought.

If you are feeling at all unwell, please save your visit for another day.

We hope you find all these changes reassuring and feel free to chat anything through with any of our staff when you visit.
