Coronavirus / COVID-19 Update

We have spoken to our team, customers and taken advice from other businesses and government guidance. At present we have decided to stay open but are introducing measures to reduce the risk to our guests and staff. We want all patrons to come to the bar and have a great and safe experience so we hope that you understand the measures we are taking.

From our understanding and advice received the virus is mainly spread through the air and those showing symptoms are the most likely to spread the disease. Whilst we can't test everyone properly we reserve the right to refuse entry to customers showing signs of a persistent cough, fever or flu like symptoms.


We will be testing customers at the door using a non-contact infrared thermometer. If your temperature is above 38 degrees centigrade you will be refused entry.

Customer Limits

To improve the air quality we will limit customer numbers in the bar to 150 patrons in the bar and 100 in the main bar area. This will allow our air conditioning machines to run at their full efficiency.

Bar cleanliness and Air conditioning

All surfaces of the bar will be sanitised before opening each day and all air conditioning machines will be set so that they DO NOT recirculate the air. The machine filters will also be cleaned and sanitised daily.

Hand wash

Whilst the spread is mainly airborne we will ask everyone use alcohol gels or wash their hands when coming into the venue. We will try and provide gels but as you can imagine they are difficult to get hold of at the moment. We do have antibacterial wash in our toilets and encourage you to use these if you do not have gel or gel is unavailable.


We understand that some customers are concerned and as such we have temporarily amended our cancellation policy.

Table bookings can cancel at any time. Please do let us know or we will charge for not showing.

Karaoke Bookings can cancel without charge 48 hours before the karaoke booking. If you are worried about coming to the bar we feel that this gives you plenty of time to cancel. This applies to new and existing bookings until risk significantly dissipates.

If the government change advice and ask people to stay home or if we close the bar in line with advice or recommended action our cancellations policies will change accordingly.

These policies will be monitored and may be updated on a day by day basis.

Final note

Whilst the danger of this virus is significantly lower to people under 40 years old we have to recognise that the spread of this virus is dangerous and people should consider whether to put themselves at risk especially if they risk transmitting the virus to the elderly or those with respiratory conditions.
