As predicted we came back into Tier 2 with pubs having to serve meals. I believe that York probably only has two weeks at this Tier before being put into Tier 3 so we will do our upmost to get people in through the pub doors so at least you can get out and enjoy yourself for a while. There will be a mass of people visiting town from Wednesday even from the likes of Stamford Bridge and Wilberfoss on the outskirts, both in Tier 3.
We are making an big effort to have the usual festive Trembling Madness offerings, Christmas Ales, Hot Mulled drinks, Christmas foods and Santa Hats.
Our two historic buildings are made for this time of the year, they feel cosy and although we can't sing and the staff have to wear masks, we still will have a smile on our faces and do our upmost to make sure you all have a great time.
At Lendal we are keeping the ground floor as a shop for December but instead we have created a new space in our basement, more seating, it also has installed an air recirculation system that pulls in fresh air and draws out the inside air 24 hours a day. We will be operating with 22 tables. There are still growler takeouts as well as hot mulled wine and cider. Plus our daily same day delivery service with over 4000 products.
Stonegate is far smaller and will only have the 7 tables. Currently we don't have a booking system in place but we will be monitoring it to see if it will need to be added as we don't want customers to be disappointed.
We have made a massive effort to keep tables distanced and everything cleaned, it feels so much safer than a supermarket, please do support your pubs and hospitallity businesses. We will lose many pubs but they will come back stronger than ever. We are Northern, friendly and love socialising.
Thank you to all our customers this year, it means a great deal to be able to serve you all and offer our services x
Lendal and Stonegate opening hours will be 10am until 10pm - our stores will close at 11pm
We'll try to update everyone with anything that's exciting or new. Give us some feedback!
