We are now open!

Welcome back to you all – we at the Hole in t’ Wall hope that you have survived the last few months with as little hardship as possible.

Now that the weather has turned we have realistically lost all of our beer garden seating – bearing this in mind we have only 13 tables inside as we are only a small pub. In keeping with the government guidelines of social distancing, we do our best to seat customers as quickly as possible when a table becomes available but this may not always be possible. 

We understand this situation is not ideal for either you or us but at the moment until a suitable solution is found we will be adhering strictly to the guidelines – maximum of 6 people outside and a maximum of 4 people inside. 

Please be understanding when we have to say we don’t have a table available, it just means we are full! 

Please remember that we as staff really don’t want to keep reminding you of the do’s and dont’s so if we ask you to quieten down or stay at the same table for example, please listen to us – it is for all our sakes.

We will not be operating a booking system so just turn up – fingers crossed you will get a table but apologies in advance if we are full – obviously a lesser capacity and weather dependant!
