Keeping You Safe - St Stephens Tavern

It’ll be great to have you visit.

We’ve made some changes to keep you safe.

In order to comply with track & trace, you will need to provide us with the lead guest’s contact details on arrival.

Bookings are for up to 6 people & for a maximum duration of 90 minutes. Internal guests must be from the same household or support bubble.

Tables have a 2m gap to keep you safe.

We are operating table service only for food & drinks. Alcohol can only be served to guests when ordering a substantial meal – i.e. a starter, a main course or a sandwich

For everyone’s safety, we must insist that guests remain seated during their visit apart from visiting the bar and toilets.

Our menu is a little shorter than normal to allow for appropriate social distancing in our kitchens…& each physical menu is disposed of after use.

You’ll be able to order & pay on your phone.

We won’t be taking cash for a while.

There are plenty of hand sanitisers available for you to use.

Please think of others. If you feel unwell, please stay at home.

We have a separate entrance & exit to maintain safe social distancing.

Please observe our one-way system to keep everyone safe.

In the event of a change in the weather, you unfortunately cannot seek shelter indoors unless we have a suitable table available and you can maintain social distancing. Please speak to the host.

Please wear a face mask when entering and exiting the pub and visiting the loos (unless you have an exemption for health reasons).

Consider yourself safe & at home in our home.


As well as the standard measures we are taking to keep you safe, we’re taking additional measures that you may not immediately see, to make sure we have a safe and comfortable environment for when you visit.

We’ve completed a Risk Assessment in line with the COVID-19 Secure Guidelines issued by the government & can display a COVID-19 Secure Certificate, having assessed the risks and taken appropriate measures to mitigate them.
Our Team are trained in new ways of working & how to manage COVID-19.
Our Team, delivery drivers and contractors follow strict social distancing and hygiene guidelines.
We ensure enhanced cleaning of touch points and toilets regularly throughout the day.
We’ve minimised unnecessary visits to the pub from our support teams.
We are continually reviewing our safety practices to identify any improvements we should make.



In line with the Government’s latest announcement, we will temporarily be closing our pub doors from Wednesday 16th December onwards until further Government advice is given. If you have an upcoming booking with us, our team will be in touch with you directly to let you know your options.

When we do re-open our doors, your safety will continue to be our number one priority as it has always been. In the meantime, please continue to check back on our website here for the latest updates.

You can of course still stock up on our award-winning Badger Beers online here, delivered direct to your home!
