We are reopening!

Amazing News, we are reopening at 12pm on 4th July 2020.

The shop and take away will continue alongside the pub activity for as long as you continue to support it.

Now, as much as we cannot wait to welcome you back or even for the first time, we’ve made so many new friends from the shop……….there are a few things that we will need to tell you about to ensure everything runs smoothly and we look after each other.

We strongly advise that you make a booking before arrival. For the time being and to ensure safe distancing we will be offering table service only, even if you are only here for drinks. There will be no seating at the bar, no standing either unless outside and keeping to the new one meter rule. We really don’t want to turn anyone away but if you arrive and we are full, that is what we will have to do. We also have less tables to comply with Government guidelines (all 43 pages of it) which makes booking more essential. To book just give us a call on 01829 741633 or email and we will call/message you back to confirm your allotted time. Please tell us how many are in your party, whether you will be eating with us and whether you would prefer to be seated indoors or outdoors.

For the time being we will not be accepting cash, so please ensure that you have an alternative method of payment.

If you are worried about it being too busy please don’t; we will be monitoring numbers at all times and if that doesn’t put your mind at ease, come earlier in the week when it’s quieter and we REALLY need the business.

We will have sanitiser stations at our entrance and at the back door. Please use them on arrival.

The Government says that we are required to gather contact data from you and hold it for 21 days. This is to help with track and trace; if someone who is tested positive and has visited the pub, we can contact others who were there on that day. Already as a business we are registered and comply with Data Protection law so please be comfortable that your information will be protected and stored safely.

Please be sure to arrive on time as we are staggering bookings and arrival times to reduce flow of traffic in any pinch point areas.

Toilets will be operating a one in one out policy and will be sanitised every hour by our team. Additional spray will be available for your use too.

 As well as our daily cleaning schedule we have introduced extra precautions to keep you safe, such as touch points being sanitised more frequently throughout opening times and staff hand washing more frequently.

We know that you want to come to the pub to catch up with everyone and talk to other human beings that are not in your household, because let’s face it we all need new input by now, but please, we beseech you, do not start flitting from person to person hugging them after a couple of drinks. We must live with this virus whilst getting on with our lives so please, for now we are asking you to stick to the one-meter rule. Opening hours are a moveable feast but for now see below.

Morning shop times will remain the same. Evening times as follows:

Monday 4-9pm (no food service)

Tuesday 4-9pm (kitchen 5-8.30)

Wednesday 4-10pm (kitchen 5-9)

Thursday 4-10pm (kitchen 5-9)

Friday 4-11pm (kitchen 5-9)

Saturday 12-11pm (kitchen 5-9)

Sunday 12-8pm (kitchen 12-6)

It’s been way way too long and we can’t wait to see you all. Thank you so much for all of your support to date and please keep doing what you are doing because we’ve a battle ahead of us to get this business healthy again and strong enough to survive.

COVID-19 Latest Update 24/03/2020

For the time being as we review our situation and amid the uncertainty at the moment, we will still be open today for essential shop items and take away service. We will no longer be taking cash and ask that you either pay contactless or preferably by bank transfer. If you are in the village we will happily deliver to you but if you come to us to collect we ask that no more than 2 people be in at any one time to enable us to keep socially distanced.

This morning from 9:00am, we will have fresh meat, milk, vegetables, butter, cheese and eggs as well as loo rolls, pet food and other bits and pieces.

Please call if you want to check stock or reserve something: 01829 741633.

COVID-19 Latest Update – Still open for business

WE ARE STILL OPEN – In light of recent news stories we would like to let you know that until further notice we are still open for business, however there are daily changes so we will keep you informed of any updates. We value all of you and want you to know that we are doing all that we can to keep everyone safe in these worrying times.

 As well as our daily cleaning schedule we have introduced extra precautions to keep you safe such as doors being sanitised more frequently throughout opening times and staff hand washing more frequently. Everyone is still very welcome; we just ask that you do your part by washing your hands and implementing a little more social distancing than you normally would. We will be monitoring the number of people in the pub and keeping it to a level where everyone has enough space to feel safe.

In addition to our usual service we will be offering home delivery of meals to the high risk and vulnerable members of the Barrow community who are self isolating and we will be supporting the church group in delivery of any prescriptions/shopping that people may need. We will also have a takeaway service for those of you that are less at risk but still don’t want to sit in the pub to eat. We are still working out the logistics of this but please call the pub or check social media for more information and updates on 01829 741633.

We believe that The White Horse is a very important part of the village community and we want to do all that we can to keep us all safe and  a personal note this is a worrying time for both me and The White Horse team so lets be kind and please look after each other.
