Important COVID Reopening Information
We may have a Prime Minister that’s gone on record talking about COVID-19 whack-a-mole and who pops into prowess proving push-ups at the drop of a hat. Moves that would make any strong leader envious (Watch out Putin). But, for us the most surprising thing that has occurred this year has to have been the harsh reality of separation.
All of the Two Burgate team have missed our lovely customers and friendly Pickering community. Through this uncharacteristically sober (for us anyway) time of crisis, we can only hope that each any every one of you are safe and well.
Thankfully, the time has now come to welcome you all back to the Two Burgate bar! However, things aren’t back to normal and unlike Boris, we aren’t allowed to play whack-a-mole with our customers.
So, we wanted to tell you about the ‘new normal’ we need you all to embrace as we reunite at Two Burgate. We’ve put some simple, yet effective measures in place to keep us, you and everyone involved as safe as humanly possible.
For Two Burgate to remain safe and open we need all customers who enter to care about the safety of others. We love our staff, customers and are taking everyone’s safety extremely seriously. This is why COVIDIOTS will not be welcome.
So, What Can You Expect?
We temporarily put the gin down and picked up our clipboards, risk assessing the shitake mushrooms out of Two Burgate until we were blue in the face.
Now, upon entering you’ll be welcomed with a friendly squirt of antibacterial hand-sanitiser before you navigate the one-way system (don’t worry it’s not as complicated as York City Centre one-way system, even after a drink or two). To ensure everyone is safe, whether they’re coming or going, we also have a one-way exit system.
If you didn’t get enough sanitisation at the front door (as if you could ever have too much sanitiser), we also have a sanitise station situated outside the bathroom and even more sanitiser dotted around Two Burgate.
Once you are safety sanitised and sat comfortably, we want you to be as safe as possible at your table too. That’s why we’ve removed some of our tables to create at least 1m+ safe space for everybody seated.
We will be running table service ONLY upon reopening, that means no standing at the bar, sitting on knees or bringing your trusty camping chair along (sorry folks). Our new ‘No Seat – No Service’ ethos also extends to groups of more than 6 people. Unfortunately, if you have more than 6 in a group we won’t be able to welcome you in.
Due to this reduced capacity we strongly recommend booking in advance to avoid disappointment. You can book via Facebook or simply give us a bell on 01751-798372.
All customers will be asked for contact details to comply with the Government Track & Trace Policy. We’ll keep your details (safely away from prying eyes) in a sealed envelope, before destroying them once 21 days has passed.
Nobody wants any nasty germs hanging around, so you can throw them all away with our disposable and oh-so hygienic menus. No need to get up when it’s time to pay, contactless or card payment can be taken at your table too.
Our new evening menu will be available from August 1st 2020, until then we only have the daytime menu for all of your delicious daytime delights.
Still a little nervous about venturing out of the house? Don’t worry, we have takeaway options available for the more nervous.
We can’t wait to see you all (safely). So, get yourself booked in and come and try our new gins. We’ve got an awful lot of food, fun and merriment to make up for during the back end of 2020.
