Our Commitment to your safety
We are committed to ensuring that The Plough Inn is a safe place to work and visit. The health, safety and wellbeing of our guests and team is, as always, our ultimate priority. In accordance with government recommendations we have made necessary changes to our operations so that we will be able to welcome you back as safely as possible. Here’s what we are doing in our restaurant and accommodation to provide our guests and team with the confidence to visit The Plough inn safely:
What we are currently doing
All staff have received COVID-19 specific training and have signed a health declaration. They also undertake an hourly temperature check during work hours.
We have instigated an enhanced frequency of cleaning and sanitisation regimes throughout the property, with particular focus on hand contact points. There are hand sanitising points throughout the premises and we request that all guests sanitise hands upon entry.
On a continuous basis, we carry out a thorough sanitation of the elements, devices, surfaces and furniture that may be in contact with our guests.
We will respectfully ask you to maintain a policy of social distancing wherever possible when on the premises, and our team are also encouraged to maintain a safe distance where possible. Please take note of instructions in all areas, where clear signage indicating restrictions will be in place.
If you are displaying any symptoms related to COVID-19, please refrain from visiting and self-isolate as recommended by government advice.
Dining at The Plough Inn
We are delighted to have re-opened our restaurant in accordance with the advice of the government and we have made some adjustments to our service to ensure a safe environment for everyone:
Upon making a reservation, guests will be asked for contact details from a member of each party in accordance with government guidelines to collect information to track and trace if necessary.
We have carefully considered the spacing differences between tables and chairs and request that they are not moved.
Please note that booking is strongly encouraged and, during busy periods, those without bookings may be asked to wait for a table outside the inn. We will endeavour to accommodate as many guests as possible while observing our new measures to keep you safe.
Upon arrival for your reservation, you will be greeted by a host and taken to your table.
Unfortunately, we are unable to welcome you at the bar for drinks and we politely ask that you do not gather at the bar area.
Disposable menus will be used once and recycled.
Tables are no longer pre-set with cutlery and condiments and single use items including disposable menus and condiment servings are used to limit repeated surface contact.
We would kindly ask you to use contactless payments wherever possible.
Dishes, cutlery and glassware will be thoroughly and continuously disinfected, and we will continue to regularly sanitise all surfaces and furniture that may be in contact with our guests.
Our toilets will be regularly cleaned and limitations on guests using the facilities at any given time will be in place to help maintain social distance.
