COVID-19 Guidance & Measures

Below is new COVID-19 guidance for visitors to the pub - please read before you visit and if you have any queries let us know:

You are not currently required to wear a face mask in pubs.
Therefore you do not need to wear one in ours. Customers are of course free to continue wearing them if it makes them more comfortable.

We are continuing to ask people to not stand at the bar.
You are free to order from the bar, but we ask that once served you then keep the area clear.

We want to maintain a safe environment at the pub, so please make sure you are COVID free and well before you visit.

We will continue to abide by ongoing government measures and will inform you if anything changes. But for now, it's business as usual and we hope to welcome you soon.

We want you and your family to feel as safe as possible. That's why we have invested significantly in new and extensive protective measures to comply with all guidelines set by the government in response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. These include:

  • An infrared thermometer to allow temperature checks for team members ahead of every shift
  • Safety signage to reassure and inform customers about new guidelines
  • Hand sanitiser dispense stations situated throughout the pub

Customers will also be asked to make some small changes to help the pub stay safe and stay open

  • Pre-book a table
  • Check menus online in advance
  • Pay by card
  • Use the sanitisation points regularly to minimise the chances of infection

In addition to this, for a temporary period the Woolly Sheep will offer a more focused menu to achieve their usual high service standards with a reduced kitchen staff due to social distancing guidelines. The menu will include pub classics as well as vegetarian and vegan dishes and is available to view through the below link.
