THE YORKSHIRE BRIDGE INN 

COVID-19 – CHARTER

We are delighted to be able to open once again and we are looking forward to welcoming guests. We conducted a comprehensive and thorough review of our business prior to re-opening in July 2020 and we continued to update and enhance our procedures and systems during the rest of the time we were open last year. 

We’ve reviewed our procedures once again to reflect the ‘outdoor dining only’ stage of the government’s roadmap to ease lockdown restrictions, and we have summarised below the key points you should be aware of when visiting us at this time: 

GENERAL

  • The entire pub has been deep cleaned throughout prior to our re-opening and has an enhanced housekeeping regime. 
  • We’ve limited our guest capacities to reduce the opportunity for overcrowding.
  • We require all guests 16 years and over to enter their details into the NHS Covid-19 track and trace app/QR code system or have their details recorded manually by one of our team.
  • The Rule of 6 applies – this means that up to 6 people from 6 different households or two households of any size may sit together. 
  • In line with government rules, guests are only allowed inside the building to use the toilets, to use the baby change facilities or to access another outside area. 
  • A face covering must be worn if you enter the building unless you are medically exempt.
  • We operate a table only service and all orders and payments for food and drinks will be taken at your table by one of our team, or alternatively by using our table QR code system. 
  • We politely ask you (and any children in your group) to remain seated at your table at all times unless using the toilet facilities.
  • Notices are displayed in all common areas to remind everyone of the safety measures in place.
  • Hand sanitising stations are provided in key areas, please use them.
  • We have carried out a Covid-19 risk assessment and secured the ‘Good to Go’ accreditation from Visit England.
  • New health check procedures have been introduced for our team members.
  • If you have any COVID-19 symptoms such as fever, cough, shortness of breath, or loss of taste and smell, we kindly ask that you do not visit us. Please do not enter the premises if you are feeling unwell.

OUR FOOD & DRINKS

  • Our opening times have changed whilst our hotel is closed and whilst it is outdoor drinking / dining only. 
  • Food served 12 – 8pm Mon – Fri / 9am – 8pm Sat & Sun
  • Bar open from noon onwards 
  • If it is really quiet or very bad weather and we may close early so please call or message us if you’re making a special trip.
  • Our new Al Fresco menu is available to view on our website. It’s a slightly smaller menu than normal (just whilst we’re outside dining only), but all your favourites are still featured. 
  • Due to the limited number of outdoor tables available we are not taking bookings and will operate on a first come, first served basis. Please just call in and we’ll endeavour to find you a table.  There may be a short wait at busy times.
  • We operate a table only service and all orders and payments for food and drinks will be taken at your table by one of our team, or alternatively by using our table QR code system. 
  • We can only have a maximum number of guests on site at any one time and all guests must be seated at a table. If all our tables are occupied, we are unable to serve drinks for you to consume whilst you are standing, perched on a windowsill, sat on the wall etc! 
  • Single use menus are in place. 

OUR HOTEL

  • Our hotel is currently closed until 17th May 2021. We are taking bookings for dates from the 17th May. 

Stay well, have a safe journey and we look forward to welcoming you very soon!
