Coronavirus: Spalding's The Ivy Wall to stay open

More news, no ads


Pub operator JD Wetherspoon is to continue operating its pubs across the UK, including Spalding's The Ivy Wall in New Road.

They will remain open at all times unless the Government states otherwise.

The company says its 870 pubs are taking even further precautions to minimise the spread of COVID-19 to both customers and employees.

In order to enable social distancing, the pubs will ask customers, once drinks have been ordered, to find a table and avoid standing at the bar.

Tables will be well spaced, and customers asked to respect others by choosing alternate tables in the pub.

JD Wetherspoon say the customer space within a Wetherspoon pub is, on average, more than 4,000sq ft., which is approximately three times the size of an average pub.

Customers can use the Wetherspoon app to order food and drinks, to be delivered to their table.

Other precautions will include, but are not limited to, all payments being made by card, where possible; regular updates being provided to all employees, together with education on prevention; reinforcing personal hygiene controls, including emphasis on frequent and proper hand-washing, for both customers and employees.

Pubs will clean and sanitise contact points more frequently and dish/glasswashers will fully sanitise all cutlery, plates, cups and glassware, after every use.

Wetherspoon chairman Tim Martin said: "We are continuing to take account of official guidance from the UK Government and Public Health England."
