More pubs in Gedling borough have announced reopening plans over the coming days following the decision to lift lockdown restrictions affecting the hospitality industry on July 4.
Inn For A Penny, Carlton
The Inn For A Penny on Burton Road has announced it will be reopening from Saturday, July 4, with normal opening times, which are weekdays and Sunday 12pm-11pm and Friday-Saturday 12pm-12am.
In a post on their Facebook page they wrote: “People inside the pub must remain seated unless going to the toilet. Table service will be provided once ordered and paid at the bar inside the pub.
“We will have a specific area to collect drinks if you wish but you must not stand at the bar. Only time we will accept standing at the bar is to pay and collect a drink.
“Hand sanitising units will be placed around the pub in certain areas which we will advise customers to use often.
“We will no longer be giving out straws so please bring your own if necessary.
They added: “For people who are sitting outside we must let you know that if it rains and there are no seats left inside we will have to turn you away or you will have to wait until a table inside becomes free.
“Thank you in advance for helping to keep the pub safe, we hope this will all come to an end very soon. If you have any questions don’t hesitate to message the Inn For A Penny site.
