As there are now some restaurants, pubs and coffee shops opening up, albeit on very restricted terms, we are naturally looking at how Barnaby’s may do the same. In assessing this, our priority has been the safety of our fabulous volunteers and loyal customers, whilst also respecting the guidelines we operate under and the experiences of similar community projects such as ours.
Having given this some considerable thought, it is currently the intention of the BBT to re-open Barnaby’s in the first week of September. We hope that, by then, the current guidelines may have relaxed enough to allow us to deliver the full Barnaby”s experience. We know this news may be disappointing to some. That includes us, as we want to be open too! However, the size of our kitchen and the need to create a suitable one-way system make effective social distancing very challenging.
Our confirmed plans will be announced closer to the time, both here and on Facebook. We very much look forward to sharing them with you all.
