First and foremost, the safety of everyone at The Bowgie is our top, most important priority. We have therefore maintained many of our COVID safety procedures in order to ensure we keep our brilliant Bowgie Team as well as our amazing community and customers well-looked after!
Plus, it will also provide us with a higher chance of staying open throughout the rest of the year so that our guests can keep on visiting The Bowgie!
What do you need to know?
👉 PRE-BOOKING IS ESSENTIAL via the Food & Drink page on our website or DishCult (even if it’s just for a drink!), and you can do this up to seven days before you come for a maximum group of six lovely people 😊
👉 ALL orders must be placed via our Bowgie Inn App on a smartphone, which can be dowloaded from the App Store using our FREE customer WiFi 🍴🍺
👉 We’d like to ask everyone to continue wearing masks when not seated at a table, our Bowgie Team will be doing the same 🙏
👉 We’re offering table service ONLY – no bar service, and we’re only accepting payments via PayPal or card payments – NO cash or contactless payments 💳
👉 Social distancing, hand sanitising and wearing masks whilst unseated will still be encouraged 🤲
You may also notice some new signs around The Bowgie when you visit us. We know how disappointing it can be to arrive at a pub and realise there are certain procedures in place that you weren’t aware of, especially in these uncertain times where many hospitality venues are enforcing different measures that are unique to them. So we created some new signs to try and make our messaging as clear as possible before you enter the premises. They’ll be displayed at various points around The Bowgie, including on our front gate, in the car park, at the entrance and inside our foyer.
You will also be seeing us in some new Bowgie t-shirts that will hopefully act as another reminder of the measures we’re keeping in place. Printed on the front will be our new acronym, S.A.F.E!
S – Stay Seated
A – App Ordering
F – Feel Safe
E – Enjoy and View!
Unfortunately, this year has been another extremely challenging one, where our team have experienced unkind and disrespectful behaviour – even though they’ve only been following the rules! Whilst the majority of our visitors have been understanding and patient, we can’t allow this mistreatment to happen anymore. We really hope our clear signs, t-shirts and notices on our social media and our website will help, allowing us to feel comfortable and happy at work so we can give our customers the Bowgie experience they deserve.
We understand the desire and longing to get back to ‘normal,’ but here at The Bowgie this IS our new ‘normal’ and will continue to be for the foreseeable future. Everyone’s safety comes first, and we couldn’t be prouder to stand by this!
We hope to see you soon, and remember, stay S.A.F.E!
Team Bowgie xxx
