Our first featured business is the Dog & Partridge on Bare Lane. Owned by Greene King, it is managed by landlord Nigel Pearson and his team. The Dog & Partridge has been completely revitalised since Nigel arrived and has become a go-to place for a well priced meal and a pint.

This year, has obviously been tricky for the whole hospitality sector and the Dog & Partridge is no different to all the other pubs and cafes that have been closed down during the Covid-19 pandemic

Opening again is a tricky business and has required many hours of management and staff training. The pub can only take 50% of it’s previous limit and everyone must be seated.

Tables are cleaned and sanitised constantly throughout the day and only certain tables can be used to keep social distancing rules.

There are now entrance and exit doors to assist with social distancing. You come in from the side door and exit through the front. This stops those awkward face to face meetings trying to stay apart.

A lot of effort has been taken to protect both staff and customers, while at the same time providing a service to the community. The best way to order is via the Greene King app from your table. Your food and drink will be brought to your table. You can even click and collect a takeaway if you prefer.

Even the loos are treated with care. The engaged sign is set by using your elbow!

Everyone at the Dog & Partridge is committed to making the pub a safe place to eat and enjoy a drink. If you have any questions or want to book a table (recommended, even for a drink), then you can call the pub on 01524 426246.
