Covid 19 


Please take the time to read the following statements and help us at The Old Siege House to keep everyone safe and secure.


We are following government guidelines and have worked hard to ensure you are safe so please respect the staff who are looking after you during this difficult time and please do not move any tables and chairs from their places as they are at a safe distance.


We would like to welcome you back to The “New” Old Siege House Bar and Brasserie where we are now operating under strict government guidelines and according to Covid_19 secure working conditions.

We hope you enjoy your time with us here at The Old Siege House.

We wanted to share with you what we have been doing and also how things will be slightly different here.

We have undertaken a Covid risk assessment for the business and all our full-time members of staff have undergone a Covid secure business course to identify how to operate during these times.

All staff will be temperature checked prior to their shifts and will have to declare if they are unwell or have had contact with anyone with covid symptoms, if so they will be sent home for 14 days isolation.

We are now required to wear face coverings and require all customers to wear a face covering as you move around the restaurant. Face coverings do not need to be used whilst you are seated in the restaurant or in the bar area. We are not required to have screens at the bar or tills and have arranged the seating areas to comply with the new 1 metre plus rules. 

We have set up numerous sanitising stations throughout the restaurant for you to use and our staff will be reminded to wash their hands and to sanitise at least every 20 minutes.

We have arranged a more thorough cleaning schedule to ensure all areas are kept as clean and as secure as possible.

Our staff will try to ensure they keep at least 1 metre away where possible and we ask that you do the same.

If you have any symptoms or have been in contact with anyone suspected of having Covid, we ask that you please do not come to dine or drink until you have had the all clear.

All service for food and drink will be taken at the tables so please be patient as this will increase waiting times and your table will not be laid until you have sat down.

Where we can we will try to operate a one way system and would ask you to follow any signage directing you within the building.

New measures now require us to be closed by 10pm every evening so please be aware of these new rules and make sure you have transport booked as we cannot let anyone stay in the building after 10pm.


Finally we hope you enjoy your time here at The “new” Old Siege House and we would like to thank you for returning to us and we look forward to seeing you again in the future.
