LGC Pubs Are Back In Business

6th August 2020 posted in BUYERS TENANTS

It must be said that there are far more important things in life than your local pub, and it is fair to say there has been a wide range of opinions regarding pubs being allowed to re-open in England. Naming the day “Super Saturday” and the promotional aspect of celebrating the return of pubs hasn’t been welcomed by everyone, but it must be said that there are many who are pleased to see the return of their local pub.

It is fair to say that local pubs are a bedrock of local communities, and their presence plays a strong role in bringing a community together. Local pubs also help the local economy, providing jobs and creating local suppliers who have a place to sell their wares. When you add in the social benefits of a pub, there are valid reasons why the return of bars is welcome.

Follow the recommended guidelines

Anyone looking to ensure they comply with guidelines when returning to their favourite bar should consider the following points:

·         Being asked to use hand sanitiser or handwashing facilities as you enter

·         Booking required with some pubs restricting your time

·         Contactless-only ordering from tables, such as through an app

·         No loud music live gigs or sporting events that will encourage raised voices

·         No vertical drinking (customers have to be seated)

·         One person in the toilet at a time

·         Table service instead of ordering at the bar

·         Tables two metres apart and customers one metre apart

·         Your details may be recorded for NHS track and trace

More information on the guidelines for visiting the pub can be found on the Government website.

Is your favourite pub opening?

Local pubs which opened include the Cultivo Lounge, the Platform Pub and the Three Magnets. Both the Platform Pub and Three Magnets said they would operate a queuing system to allow for social distancing.

Currently, in line with Government guidelines, our Letchworth Garden City branch has reopened and is again staffed with sales and lettings personnel. To clients old and new, if you have any queries or need advice on property sales and lettings then please call 01462 481100 or email ian.ellmers@country-properties.co.uk.
