Horsington and South Cheriton pubs open from this weekend

Both our local pubs are opening, but with different times. Listen carefully, we will say this only once

The half Moon: Sundays, Fridays, Saturdays. No food to start with

Andrew Tarling reports…

The Half moon , to be known henceforward as the “New” Moon will reopen for drinks only, on Sunday at 12 noon. There will be entertainment such as Track and trace cards to be filled in, One way systems to master and of course clean hands for all!

We hope that all popular drinks will be available, but sourcing a drinkable selection of real ales is proving a challenge. Initially, we shall be open Sunday lunchtimes til 5 pm and just Friday and Saturday nights. Once we have gauged the level of support for the pubs reopening from our ever-supportive  villagers we will start food service and possibly extend our hours.

Love it, use it or lose it!

White Horse: All day   Weekends, 5-11pm weekdays. Food and takeaways

Justine Kemp reports …Yes, we are opening on Saturday, midday. Off the top of my head this is what we will be doing.

At this stage booking is not required for drinking but advisable for eating.

Our new menu will be available to take away for those who prefer not to eat on the premises.

Sanitisation point on entry, with signage.

Sanitisation procedures in the toilets. Both ladies toilets have been refurbished so little more civilised…..

Basically anything that needs to be used by another group of customers will be sanitised between use.

No standing at the bar after being served.

Tables in the new courtyard area and up in the garden. Tables inside for those that are happy to be inside.

Contactless payment available, along with cash.

A log of entry will be kept so we know who was present, when, with contact details.

We ask that people are sensible and respect others.

Dogs are still welcome but must be kept on leads and under control at all times and not wander around the pub, courtyard or garden.

 We will look at any further measures we may have to implement, remembering we are a local pub for local people and not a big town establishment.

We are looking forward to welcoming our regulars and local residents.

Our hours will start off as

Friday, Saturday and Sunday all day opening 12-11pm – Food 12 to 2.30pm and 6 to 9pm (No food Sunday evenings)

Monday to Thursday 5-11pm – Food 6 to 9pm

These will be extended as time progresses, should people want to arrange something outside the above hours then we are more than happy to take bookings.

I hope this helps, any specific questions let me know and I will try to answer them. 01963 370394
