Making The Royal Barn Covid-19 secure

What a strange and unexpected year 2020 has been so far. We certainly didn’t expect the year to turn out how it has when we celebrated the New Year with our roaring 20s party on 31st December.

We’ve tried to make the best of a challenging situation, and we hope everyone is keeping safe and well during these unsettling times.

It has been wonderful to welcome our regular customers to The Royal Barn when we re-opened our doors after lockdown – and it’s been lovely to welcome plenty of new faces too. But whether you’re a regular or a new visitor, our aim is to provide a space that feels as safe and secure as possible during the fight against Covid-19.

We’ve taken steps and precautions to create a safe environment, and we’re closely following the official government guidelines.

Our new safety measures include:

  • New booths to keep individual parties separate and make it easier to maintain social distancing.
  • A track and trace system that can be used by simply scanning a QR code.
  • Table bookings at set times, with swift and efficient table service, so there’s no queuing at the bar.
  • Card only payments, no cash.
  • Our Round app means you can browse the menu and order directly from your table.
  • Measured spaces between tables and general areas to ensure social distancing can be easily adhered to. The bar has also been sectioned off with panels.
  • A brand-new mezzanine level to offer more seating options and a private area available for hire.
  • A doorbell for the front door that customers can use to get the attention of bar staff without having to enter the building (when ordering a takeaway coffee, for example).
  • A traffic light system for the toilets.
  • Last orders at 9:30pm, with all customers off-site by 10pm.
  • We kindly ask everyone to comply with the guidelines of wearing a mask. These must be worn on entry and until you arrive at your table when you can then remove it (if for any reason you need to get up from your table, a mask has to be worn).

To add to this, we’ve also introduced something very exciting, and that’s our new daytime food offering! We’ve teamed up with fellow local business, Deli on The Square, to give our customers a fantastic option of hot and cold lunches and snacks. We love to work with local businesses and suppliers as much as we can, and the Deli at The Barn offer has been incredibly popular ever since we introduced it!

We understand that times are tough at the moment. Still, we hope that we can play our part in offering somewhere in Kirkby Lonsdale for everyone to drink, eat and enjoy themselves in a safe and comfortable environment.

We hope to see you at The Royal Barn soon!
