The light at the end of the tunnel is finally visible – and it looks like the sun shining on our pub gardens!
As of Monday 12th April, we will be able to enjoy a pint in a pub garden with friends. It’s not the full shebang, but it’s a start, and we couldn’t be more excited to welcome you back to our pubs. Your support over the past year has been amazing, and we’re really looking forward to thanking you in person.
The latest series of restrictions continue to put exceedingly high levels of pressure on our wonderful industry, but we are committed to making the right choices both for the safety of the Castle Rock family and the business.
Here’s the full update on what you can expect from Monday 12th April.
The situation remains very fluid and we may alter opening times or even open or close pubs at short notice. As we are currently restricted to serving outside only, opening times will heavily dependent on the weather. With this in mind, we urge you to regularly check your Castle Rock local’s social feeds for updates as they happen.
