The Bar Manager, Josh Harris, explained: “I’m not able to open with the same beer line-up that I’ve had before. I’ve got 18 lines for craft beer and it’s now become quite tricky to offer the same thing.” Following COVID-19 procedures, The Shepherd and Dog has implemented social distancing measures and all customers must pre-book with a maximum group size of six. Mr. Harris said: “One of the key things in the 43-page government dossier was the need for us to take and store the booking details of all of our customers which I think will come as quite a surprise. We are doing everything we can to make this pub safe and welcoming and utilise our great outdoor space to make it even better.”
Weekend opening hours are: Saturday 12-8pm and Sunday 12-8pm.
