COVID19 Update


We welcome the Government’s decision that Public Houses can reopen from Saturday 4th July. We have been working tirelessly to prepare for this. Our priority is to reopen our pubs in a safe and controlled way for our guests and our team.


Whilst we cannot wait to welcome you back, we will be reopening our pubs in a phased approach starting from Tuesday 7th July. This is to ensure the very highest levels of hospitality can be consistently delivered, as they were before the pandemic started.


Details of which pubs will be opening when, are HERE. We suggest you keep an eye on our individual pub websites for further details of exactly when they will be reopening and what you can expect.


We continue to brew our award-winning Badger beer at our Blandford Brewery, which you can buy online HERE.
