The White Horse Rendham
Following the Government announcement last week, we have reviewed all of the COVID-19 secure guidelines in detail (there is blooming loads of them). We have also taken advise from our professional bodies and completed a comprehensive risk assessment of the pub as required by the guidelines. Due to the size, age and nature of the pub we are unable to be COVID-safe to protect our staff and customers whilst also being a traditional village pub and financially viable. It is therefore with great sadness we wanted to let you all know that we will not be re-opening on 4th July. We will continue to assess the guidelines as they are updated with regards to safety and social distancing and hopefully at some point in the future we will be able to re-open. Thank you for all the kind wishes and messages of support over the last 16 weeks, we really appreciate it and miss you all. This is the hardest decision we have ever had to take, impacting not just our business, but our home, our livelihood, our friends, our customers and our social life. However, we feel that at this time it is the right decision, to ensure that we all continue to be socially responsible and healthy. Stay safe and see you around the village, Paul and Lisa
