It has been confirmed that we are in Tier 2, High Alert Coronavirus restrictions. This follows rising infection rates in the BCP area and shows that more needs to be done to get the virus under control. The owners of the Goods Yard have considered how best to respond. We have always believed that we would not ask our staff to do something that we would not do, and on this basis we have decided that the pub will remain closed until the local area returns to Tier 1 restrictions. The government furlough scheme will allow us to keep all staff paid and we look forward to the Spring when we sincerely hope vaccines will be doing their job and allowing us to return to normal. In the meantime, keep safe, have as good a Christmas as you possibly can and be kind to each other. Jenny, Danni and the team look forward to welcoming you back as soon as it is safe.
