Good morning!

I am utterly delighted to announce the re-opening of the Bell Inn. From Friday 10th we will be open for reservations – The team and myself thank you for patience and understanding as we meet the various challenges a labour of love presents. Over the next few days I will be in contact with everyone who had previously booked with us to re-organise your Bell Inn experience. Like many others in the hospitality industry we’ve been working hard to secure the safety of both our customers and staff. This pandemic has effected everyone in some way – and we must all find the path out of this together.

For everyone’s safety we have followed government advice and have put the following measures in place.

• You must book before arrival, even for drinks bookings. We will not be accepting walk-ins.

• Tables can be booked via Opentable or directly by emailing directly manager@thebellinnlowerheyford.co.uk

• Tables can only be booked for households(or immediate social bubble)• All service will occur at the tableside, please, do not try and order at the bar

• Upon arrival we request that you use the hand sanitiser provided and please wait to be seated by James.

I know this will be a bit of a change of habit for all of us, but to keep us all secure these are necessary steps. Regardless of the rather surreal nature of re-opening a pub in the post lockdown, I’m thrilled to share all of our hard work with you.

All the very best, James
