Covid-19 Precautions

We are looking forward to welcoming back all of our customers from Saturday 4th July after such a long time closed, please familiarise yourself with the guidance below prior to your visit.

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic we have updated how we manage and operate here at The Kings Head. The changes we have implemented are based on the guidance we have received from HM Government, Public Health England and the National Health Service, supported by industry specific advice from UK Hospitality.

  • Please do not come to the pub if you are feeling unwell and let us know if you start to feel unwell during your visit. In line with government guidance we will be taking contact details of all customers on the days they visit us in case you need to be contacted so we can successfully combat the spread of COVID19 and keep each other safe and healthy.

  • We will be operating a one way system through the two front doors of the pub one way in and one way out. The back door will remain open as much as possible to provide access to the courtyard and our garden area. Hand sanitiser will be available to our guests and staff at all entrances.

  • Customers should only use the toilets one person at a time and please maintain an appropriate distance when queuing. There will be an increased frequency in the cleaning and disinfection of high touch areas throughout the pub to ensure the safety of our customers and our team.

  • Government guidance recommends a maximum of two households per table, should your party be from multiple households please talk to us and we will look to manage your booking across multiple tables in line with social distancing guidelines. Please ensure your children and pets remain with your party to maintain social distancing for all of our customers’ safety.

  • In the immediate future will we be operating table service only for all visitors to the Kings Head. Tables in the restaurant are strictly for diners only and tables in our bar area, snug, frontage, courtyard and garden will be available to both diners and drinkers alike – please try to book ahead and reserve a table so that you know we can accommodate you.

  • Our menus are now laminated so they can be sanitised after each use.

  • Salt and pepper shakers will be removed and available on request they will also be sanitized after each use; condiments will be served in pots on request.

  • As always the highest food safety standards will continue to be maintained.



Thank you for your understanding and cooperation during these strange and unusual times!
