Covid-19 Policy

We are delighted to welcome you back to the Duck on the Pond

Our main priority now is to keep all our staff and customers safe so we’ve introduced some new measures in line with government guidelines:

We ask all customers to book in advance – this helps us to space you out and keep to safe distancing. Please let us know if you would like a table outside and we’ll do our best to accommodate you.

We do ask that your group is no more than two households for inside dining. Please phone or email us if you would like a table for 6 people or more.

We’ll take the name and telephone number of one person from each group for test and trace purposes.

We’re only serving you at your table at the moment – sadly there will be no bar stools, no standing room inside and no bar service.

We’ve spaced our tables to safe distancing and ask you not to move them.

We’ve made our cleaning process even more thorough – door handles, tables and menus are sanitised throughout the day. Our toilets are checked and thoroughly cleaned regularly.

We’re only taking card payments at the moment.

You’ll find hand sanitisers at the entrance to the pub and on the inside tables – we encourage you to use them.

All our staff have been told to stay at home if they have any symptoms.

It’s always our aim to make your visit pleasant as well as safe. Please contact us if you have any questions about our COVID 19 policy.
