During the Coronavirus lockdown, because of Government regulations,The Abingdon Arms is closed as a pub. But the good news is that we are open for takeaway meals and drinks, and as a small shop selling a few key items.
OPENING TIMES - please pre-order takeaway meals, and even shop items where possible
Wednesdays to Saturdays: shop 12 noon to 8pm, takeaways 5 to 8pm
Sundays: shop 11am-4pm and takeaways 12pm to 4pm
(please always pre-order Sunday takeaway lunches a day or two in advance because this is our busiest time)
Give us a call on 01865 655667.
We will be taking card payments only, over the phone please, when you place your order.
Please do give us as much notice as possible, and pre-order your food a few hours (or even a day or two) before you want it. That gives our one remaining chef plenty of time to prepare.
If you - or a friend or neighbour - are really unable to collect your takeaway, it may be possible to arrange delivery to Beckley or nearby villages. Please ask Suzy at the time of ordering whether this will be possible.
Suzy will be the only member of staff front of house, so please be patient if the phone is not answered immediately - she may be serving a customer. Please bear with us and keep trying, or alternatively email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
We are following the Government's advice and it is with great sadness that we are closed as a public house. For this reason, takeaway customers are not allowed to eat or drink on the premises, inside or outside the pub.
As a hospitality business we have an extra duty of care towards our customers and staff members. We are actively taking steps to ensure best practice during the Covid-19 pandemic and we are attempting to keep everybody safe.
We thoroughly monitor our staff, and no staff member who shows any symptoms will be allowed to enter the premises - to protect themselves and others. Our staff wash their hands regularly, make use of hand sanitiser, and use disposable gloves in all food preparation areas and service. All of our equipment is washed using powerful commercial detergents.
We would like to thank you all for your support and business at this time of crisis. Many small businesses are struggling, ours could be included. We therefore rely on our customers to keep us going through this very difficult time. Thank you so much!
