What the Pubs in West Berkshire are Planning from the 3rd December 2020(updated)

Coronavirus: West Berkshire to be placed in Tier 2 when national lockdown ends

It is not easy for our hospitality trade. Some have been planning ahead and hope to be providing their new ideas from the 3rd December 2020.

Under the high tier:

  • There is no mixing of households indoors, apart from support bubbles. A maximum of six people can meet outdoors
  • Shops, gyms and personal care services (such as hairdressers) will all reopen
  • Pubs and bars must close, unless they are operating as restaurants. Hospitality venues can only serve alcohol with substantial meals. Last orders will be taken at 10pm, and venues must close by 11pm
  • People should minimise travel and work from home where possible
  • Schools, colleges, university and early years settings will be open

As we all know the Pheasant falls under tier 2 restrictions, meaning that households can’t mix indoors. So we give you… our outdoor domes! Heated and lit, they will come with a Bluetooth speaker so you can bust out the Xmas tunes and they will even have their own Christmas tree! They can seat between 4 and 6 people.  We have 2 available for hire from Friday next week, availability is already very limited, so if you are interested in booking, please email us and we will get back to you as soon as we can. The more flexible you are with date, the more likely we will be able to fit you in 😘 hello@thepheasanthighclere.co.uk

Canarvon Arms

We are delighted to be re-opening from Wednesday 2nd December and look forward to welcoming you back responsibly.

We’ll be welcoming households, support bubbles and business dining within our lovely pub or wrap up warm and join us outside.

We’re getting ready to roll out the roasts, stoke the fires and mull the wine. We’re sprinkling our menus with Christmas cheer so join us this December and raise a glass of your favourite tipple, perhaps even a festive cocktail, to the Great British Pub.

Your safety and well-being are of utmost importance and we will be continuing to implement the highest standards of health and safety to keep you and our team, happy and safe throughout the festive season.

Young’s. Socialising responsibly since 1831

Christmas at the Pheasant

Christmas 2020 is going to be a little different to what we are used to isn’t it? But don’t worry the pub will be just as magical as every other year, you’ll just have to have a slightly smaller table is all.

We have decided to forego a Christmas party menu this year, in favour of some festive specials. That means no deposits and no preorders. Simple right.

Email us: hello@thepheasanthighclere.co.uk or call us on 01635 253360 to book, of if you’re a fan of tech, why not book online.

NYE 2020

We are currently awaiting government guidelines which will allow us to finalise out plans, but as stands we are going to be doing another secret supper, akin to our amazing Halloween event (if you wanna see what you missed out on, go and have a look at our Instagram) We are currently taking names on a waiting list and will contact everyone when we have finalised our plans.
