Nailsea Pubs Tier 2 Update

Following North Somerset and Bristol’s move from tier 3 to tier 2 on Saturday 19th December, pubs are now able to reopen providing that they operate as restaurants.

Government guidelines state that venues can host multiple groups and should follow COVID-secure guidance, but you must not mix with anyone who is not part of your household or support bubble when you are indoors. However, you can socialise with other households outside, with groups limited to 6 people. Alcohol can only be served with substantial meals and orders cannot be taken after 10pm.

Some pubs in Nailsea have reopened, whilst others remain closed for the time being.

All information correct at time of writing (21st December 2020).

The Blue Flame Inn

The Blue Flame Inn issued the following on their Facebook page on 18th December –

“Unfortunately with all the rules and restrictions that we would have to adhere to serve you a pint, it wouldn’t be viable to open, so we will have to stay closed.”
