Covid-19 Update

at The Bustard Inn

Link to the Safe-to-Trade register

We’re delighted to confirm our intention to reopen on 19 May, when indoor dining will be permitted.

Reservations are now being taken for 19 May to 30 June – book online here.

All our Covid-secure measures, that were so well received last year, are still in place. All tables are separated by at least 2m and groups of 6 can book immediately. Larger parties will need to discuss their requirements with a Manager ahead of booking. The comfort and wellbeing of all customers and staff remains our priority.

Aside from the important protective measures, the entire team are focused on delivering the dining and service experience we are renowned for.

We’re looking forward to seeing you!

Warmest regards

– Julian & Lesley
