Covid-19 Operating Protocols at The Hawkenbury
Before re-opening, we have undertaken a detailed health and safety risk assessment, as a result of which
we have made a wide range of practical modifications and enhanced personal
hygiene and cleaning routines, as well as giving clear instructions to staff
and guests , in order to minimise the risk of transmission at the Hawkenbury as
far as possible.
This includes one-way systems, socially distanced tables,
touchless hand sanitiser dispensers
installed and a number of new operating procedures .
Visitors will be asked to give their name and contact details to the pub either when they make a booking, or when they arrive. This temporary record will now be kept by us for 21 days so those who visit can be contacted if there is a localised breakout of coronavirus.
Pub rules from 14th September
In order to keep us, you and your family and friends safe, it remains very important that you stay alert when meeting family and friends.
