Reopening Safely - FAQs


We've been working hard behind the scenes at The Buck to make sure that when we reopen, we make it as safe as possible, whilst also following the latest government guidelines.

That’s why we’ve developed 5 key promises to you, our loyal customers, as well as our dedicated teams, to keep everybody safe. We also have some small but important requests for our customers which will help us look after everyone in our pubs.

We’re all in this together, after all. It’s all part of our new PUB SAFE scheme, which we’ve launched and are displaying proudly, so that wherever you see the logo, you know we’re doing everything we can to protect both you and our teams.

Your favourite Country Pub will follow a new set of Pub Safe promises, designed to look after team members and ensure customers can socialise safely. The Pub Safe Promises scheme centres around hygiene and safety, while maintaining the atmosphere of the Great British pub, and includes the following five promises: 

1.    Safe socialising layout throughout our pub
2.    Looking after our team, so they can look after our customers
3.    Minimise contact
4.    Hand sanitising and hygiene
5.    Pub Safe Monitor

“We can’t wait to welcome our customers back and we know people are eager to return to their local. The safety of our customers and team members is always our number one, priority and against the backdrop of a slow recovery from COVID-19, we are investing to put in place all the necessary arrangements.  Of course, customers will notice some differences when they return but it’s important that alongside implementing the changes, we maintain the very essence of the great British pub.” Unfortunately, many pubs across the country, will not be financially viable or able

to open for operational reasons with the current restrictions in place and we hope that, for the future of our industry, these measures will be short-lived.

“We are working towards a phased re-opening. However, the future of our industry is reliant on continued support from the government and reducing social distancing from two metres to one would make it possible for many more pubs across the country to be viable.”
