Nailsea Pubs Reopen After Covid-19 Lockdown

Following the easing of lockdown restrictions, many pubs in Nailsea have been welcoming back customers through their doors the past few weeks. Pubs were able to reopen earlier in July providing they complied with guidance and measures issued by the government.

In this short guide we’ve provided a brief overview of what some of the pubs in Nailsea are offering.

All information correct at time of writing (29th July 2020).

The Old Farmhouse

Opening on the 22nd July and serving food from the 24th, The Old Farmhouse opened slightly later than a lot of other pubs.

Their menu is slightly reduced due to the number of chefs that can be working at any one time. However, they are introducing a “Carvery to Your Table” offer whereby diners can enjoy the carvery experience from their table with unlimited vegetables and sides.

Booking is recommended, however, walk ins are welcome if tables are available. Delivery and takeaway options are available too.

Lots of changes have been made to keep everyone safe but the space indoors allows for social distancing and the garden can seat 120 people.

Due to the smaller team, they are temporarily closed on Mondays (except for Bank Holiday Monday).

For the latest updates, please see their website or Facebook.

The Ring O’ Bells

The Ring O’ Bells is offering a full menu of food Thursday to Saturday, as well as a carvery on Sundays. New to the menu, they now also offer homemade, stone-baked pizzas with a variety of toppings.

A one-way system has been implemented in the bar area for ordering drinks and food, and the function room and garden has been opened to allow more space for customers.

Those looking to eat are advised to reserve a table, however takeaway is available too.

For the latest updates, please see their website or Facebook.

The Royal Oak

The Royal Oak is offering a limited menu, with takeaway available on some dishes. Queueing space at the bar is extremely limited so customers are advised to order their food and drink on the order and pay app.

A one-way system is in place and the large beer garden is open for customers to eat and drink.

For the latest updates, please see their Facebook.

The Blue Flame Inn

The Blue Flame Inn is initially only open on Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. They are currently open outside in the back garden and are running table service.

The kitchen is open, offering a small selection of dishes. There are plenty of tables and undercover areas and there is no need to book.

The Moorend Spout

The Moorend Spout opened its doors on 14th July for food and drink.

Indoor tables are available but additional outside seating has also been provided. Although walk ins are welcome, booking is advised to avoid disappointment.

They are also continuing to offer their takeaway and delivery service to help those most vulnerable and those who are self-isolating.

The White Lion

Following considerable refurbishment work that included painting, cleaning, clearing and a new carpet, The White Lion reopened with a new tenant on Saturday 25th July.

Open daily from noon until late, they don’t serve food but do stock a wide range of beers and ciders as well as a selection of spirits, gin and wine.

The pub features two distinct bar areas and a large outside garden to allow for social distancing.

The Sawyers Arms

The Sawyers Arms has been welcoming customers back since 4th July. Plenty of social distancing measures are in place – such as entry through the front door and exit through the garden – and are thus operating at a reduced capacity.

Drinks can be ordered via an app or at the bar.

For the latest updates, please see their Facebook.

Grove Sports Centre & Social Club

Grove Sports Centre & Social club are back open serving a vast array of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks.

Drink orders can be placed at the designated order point and table service is provided by staff in order to minimise customer movement within the building.

Entry is via the patio doors to the rear of the building, with exit through the front of the building, but outside there is a large grassed area that customers can use. Benches are provided but people are also able to bring camping chairs and picnic blankets.

Mizzymead Recreation Centre & Club

Mizzymead Recreation Centre & Club are open again, operating on limited hours initially. However, they are aiming to fully reopen on 4th August 2020.

Like other pubs, a one-way system has been implemented and there are designated points of entry and exit.

Wearing of masks is compulsory when moving around the club and in the toilet, but they are not required when seated at a table and consuming drink and food. All service and payments are made at the table.

Non-members are welcome but will be expected to pay the joining fee.
