Pre-Opening Sanitising Plan

We have sourced an outside company called Filter Environmental, an Approved COVID-19 Sanitising company that produce an environmentally responsible and sustainable sanitiser and disinfectant, ideal for providing a COVID-19 free workplace https://www.filta.co.uk/

They will come prior to the new opening and sanitise our Kitchen, fridges both in the kitchen and bar areas along with the whole pub & Toilet Areas to ensure that we are ready for re-opening.

Dining area adjustments will be needed to keep the social distancing 2m rule.
Hopefully to be reviewed in the near future.

We will have sanitising stations in 2 places one on arrival where you MUST use on entering the pub and secondly in the bar area for your convenience.

We have recently done a risk assessment to ensure staff and customer safety for when we re-open.

What this means is we have had to have a good move around with tables / furniture for social distancing both customers and staff to adhere to.

Before lockdown we were able to seat up to 68 diners in our dining areas.

Under the new social distancing government guidelines we can now seat up to 52 diners in the dining areas and the bar area will also have to adhere to the guidelines.

We do hope that our garden and terrace will be well used as we know you like sitting out there, weather permitting, to enjoy being outside.

We have had some heaters fitted for the colder nights so that should help

Bookings are best do avoid disappointment give us a call 01743 790060.

Don’t email for bookings the same day as emails are read once a day and if we are busy we don’t check till late evening or early morning so ringing us is the best way to book.

Ordering Food & Drink

Our aim is to organise the social distancing measures in the pub.
The team will come and take your drinks order and your food order.
Once you have finished your meal our team will bring the bill to you and organise payment at your table.

We will have each table 2 menus per table of 4.

Our tables won’t be set up in the usual way with anything already on the tables. We will bring you over your cutlery and condiments once you have ordered.

We will only use menus once we will then recycle them.

Ordering Food & Drinks Outside

We will have all outside tables numbered so you can note your table number and orders can be placed.

We will have staff coming in and out so catch one of us politely and we will happily take your order at your table where payment must be made at point of ordering.

Drinks for outside will be served in disposable glasses which will then be recycled.

The Team will be embracing a new way of working so please bear with us all. We appreciate we are all uncertain and change isn’t always accepted well.

As we are in changing times our staff have been supplied with the full range of PPE to protect the customers and themselves.

You will find our front of staff wearing disposable face masks and gloves.

Whereas our kitchen team will be wearing all of this plus face visors whilst they are preparing your meals.

We will also be providing a reduced menu to start with which still hopefully include your favourite meals.

Please be patient as cooking times may take a little longer.

Any changes to government guidelines will be implemented as soon as we receive new information. We will try to do everything in our power to get through this alongside you.

If you have any questions or queries please do not hesitate to email us : info@nagsheadpontesbury.co.uk

We will look forward to seeing you all soon.

Kind Regards

The Nags team x
