Tier 2. Not what we here at the Half Moon were expecting. I must say it did put a downer on last week whilst we spent time with our children.
We have been reading up on the new guidelines & restrictions as to how we can re-open (again) for dine-in as well as continue our delivery & collection menu whilst providing the same great Half Moon service & keep our team, our customers & our family safe.
So, from Thursday 3rd December, we plan to open but there will have to be some changes (sorry!)
The tier 2 restrictions mean that we cannot serve alcohol unless it is alongside a substantial meal (table meal).
As part of the tier 2 restrictions, we cannot allow more than one household at a table. This means that you cannot meet anyone outside of your household or bubble in a restaurant (or pub) setting.
When booking with us we, therefore need to confirm that your booking will be for one household only. We have been & will continue to contact all bookings made with us online to check that they meet these government criteria.
If you have a booked table which you need to cancel or amend, please do contact us either via this page or on – 01308 488321.
Please be aware – all of our previous guidelines will remain in place, so please book your table in advance to avoid disappointment, please wear face masks whilst entering/ leaving & moving around the building & please follow our one-way system. The government track & trace is a legal requirement so this will have to be completed before we can serve you your meal & drink.
We will be launching our winter (tier 2) menu on Thursday for dine-in & hope to feature some festive dishes alongside some Half Moon favorites.
Our Christmas day delivered Christmas dinner is booking up fast – so please check out our online ordering for a great opportunity for us to deliver to your door, our award-winning food to go!
Our award-winning take away & delivery will continue Thursday to Sunday.
So fear not – if you are not in a position to join us – we can bring the pub to you – almost. Our food to go will be available during our opening hours but MUST be booked in advance (either by phone or through our website www.halfmoonmelplash.co.uk )
Please note, to protect our team, face masks must be worn to collect your take out food.
Sorry this is a little long, but we need to be sure we are doing our best for everyone.
All that is left to be said is thank you for your support this year – Our amazing customers, team & supporters are what has got us this far through 2020 & whilst we may not get to raise a glass of festive cheer with you in person – we look forward to welcoming you back in 2021 when the government restrictions allow.
Team Half Moon
