As you will all be aware, all pubs, bars and restaurants in England are required to close from Thursday 5th November.⁣ We put the utmost effort into reopening our doors in July and will be sure to do the same upon our return in December, ensuring we meet all government guidelines when doing so. Please take a look below at the safety measures that will be in place for when things get back to normal.

For now, it’s a short goodbye and we’ll be back soon to welcome you into our venues. In the meantime ensure you, your family and friends stay safe and when the time comes, we’ll be here, we’re off to get the mulled wine ready...

Your safety and that of our staff is always the top priority so we've carried out risk assessments on all sites in preparation for opening which you can find links to below. We've re-trained our staff and arranged our service spaces to meet Government guidelines so that we all remain safe. Not only this but we have enhanced our cleaning and hand-washing schedules to make sure hygiene standards are at their highest. Our kitchen staff will be provided with appropriate PPE and our floor staff are able to access PPE and use it at their discretion.

Here are a few changes you can expect from your next visit with us...

Since then the brothers have opened a number of traditional and contemporary pubs and bars in and around South London.

We are a family run business that strongly believes in forging close links with other businesses in the Waterloo & Southwark areas. The Head Office team are always out & about in the area looking at new & exciting innovations for their sites.
