What we are doing about COVID-19?

Following on from the government's statement yesterday in regard to the re-opening of pubs, Andy & I have conducted a Covid 19 & Social Distancing Risk Assessment on the pub and it's outside spaces.
The interior of the building was not designed with social distancing, even with reduction of 2metres to 1metre, in mind. Not surprising considering it was built some 500 years ago! The cottage style of small rooms which give it it's character, means that we would only be able to have a very limited number of tables inside. With also having to offer table service only, we have decided that it is not an option to for us to open up the the inside at this time. In not opening the interior of the pub, we will also be able to continue with our Click & Collect and Takeaway service which we feel is hugely beneficial to the local community.
We have been busy planning the re-opening of our outside spaces for quite some time and have already put certain measures in place. The front garden will be open for food & drink (albeit with a limited menu) and the back courtyard garden will be for drinks only.
More on all of our plans for re-opening will follow as we have now received the government guidelines.
Andy & I have run The Five Bells 🔔 for the last seven years as very much a family run business and our staff and locals have become a part of that family. All the decisions that we have made and will continue to develop, will be for everybody's safety and well-being as our upmost priority.

We have created a "Safe Space" in our front lobby where you can pick your food up from and not come in to contact with anyone. This space is disinfected after every collection. We can now only take payments by card over the phone to avoid any contact.


Please also bear in mind that we are not an established takeaway or delivery service, there may be a slightly longer wait than what you get with your usual takeaways but we will do our best!


To order please call us on 01825 722259.
