Due to COVID Tier 2 restrictions, we shall not be re-opening on 2nd Dec 2020. The Hart will remain closed until our area is re-classified to Tier 1, or there are further amendments to the Government guidelines.
In accordance with Government regulations during the COVID-19 pandemic, we are required to record your visit to our premises. This data is solely for the purpose of NHS Test & Trace. Your contact details will be passed to NHS Test & Trace if you have been in contact with any visitor to The Hart that has subsequently tested positive for COVID-19. Data relating to your visit will automatically be deleted from the system after 21 days.
If you have the NHS COVID 19 app on your mobile phone, you can register your visit by scanning the NHS QR codes located around the building.
Regrettably, due to the downturn in trade due to the new 10pm closing time for the hospitality industry, we have had to look at and revise our opening times. Unfortunately, this means that we will close at 7pm on a Sunday and not reopen until 4pm on Wednesday. We hope to return to normal hours as soon as possible but this is unlikely during the 10pm curfew.
Our opening times are now as follows:
Sunday: 1pm to 7pm
Wednesday: 4pm to 10pm
Thursday: 4pm to 10pm
Friday: 4pm to 10pm
Saturday: 1pm to 10pm
We have been forced to bring in these new times as Sunday evening to Tuesday is no longer financially viable to open the premises.
No matter what you hear, especially the absolute rubbish from a local LGBTQ+ group, this is not the beginning of the end for The Hart neither are we ‘teetering on the edge’.
We look forward to warmly welcoming you Wednesday to Sunday for food, drinks and bit of funny banter in our Covid safe environment and keep our fingers crossed to get back to usual hours ASAP.
To clarify any confusion, by law we have to be closed, with all customers out of the venue by 10pm. This will mean that last orders will be called at 9.30pm, and the bar will close for service at 9.40pm. You will have until 10pm to finish your drinks and vacate the premises. There will be no variation to this rule as to do so would contravene the law, and could result in fines for both customers and the venue of up to £10,000
