COVID-19……Update about reopening of the Pig and Abbot 


Despite being legally allowed to do so, we are not yet 100% confident that we can keep both our staff and customers safe. With the virus very much still in circulation we feel it would be irresponsible of us to trade without putting the health and safety of our customers and staff first. PEOPLE'S SAFETY MUST BE OUR TOP PRIORITY!.


We really do hope that everyone can understand our decision and want you to know that we have not taken this lightly. What is “right” under unprecedented circumstances like these, is extremely subjective and we want to be completely confident that your experience with us will be both an enjoyable and safe one. Always a lot harder when you throw alcohol into the mix


Fingers crossed it wont be too much longer so please watch this space for our next update.


In the meantime, wishing all of you the very best and cant wait to see you sometime soon..
