covid-19 latest information

Updated 3rd March 2021

In accordance with Government advice, we are currently closed, but are hoping to reopen very soon! This information is in alignment with the guidance outlined in the Covid-19 Spring 2021 Roadmap for easing lockdown restrictions.

Let’s address the elephant in the room...

Weather permitting, our doors will be open from the 17th of April for weekend alfresco dining only. Food will be served from 12-4pm on Saturday and Sunday. Drinks aplenty from midday onwards! Find out more...

From the 17th May, we hope to welcome you back with open arms (metaphorically, of course) for overnight stays and indoor dining.

However, we’re afraid we can’t welcome your entire herd into our restaurant just yet. From the 17th May, indoor dining and drinking at the BaBar bar is only permitted within the rule of 6 or 2 households only.

We are now taking bookings from May 2021; we hope this time will pass swiftly and you can begin to look forward to a stay with us.

All bookings are flexible and can be rescheduled if you need to. If you are thinking about making a booking, it's best to do so soon as we experienced quite an unprecedented stampede of bookings after the last lockdown!

If you have a booking that is affected by this temporary pause, please do bear with us, we will be in touch. It may be that our replies are slower than usual as our small team take-on the difficult task of rescheduling stays. It may also be tempting to cancel your booking; but please do consider whether you can reschedule rather than cancelling. There are no penalties, and your support means the world to small independent hotels like ours :)

Please follow us on Facebook or Instagram for updates. Thank you, from the bottom of our hearts, for your support.

Take care, and stay safe!
