Please see below our new operating processes, which with your help will allow us to remain Covid Safe.


  • Inside Tables:

    • Booking’s welcome, but not essential.

    • All customers seated inside will be offered full table service.

    • A maximum table size which we will be able to safely accept is for 6 guests.


  • Outside Tables:

    • No bookings required or accepted. The outside tables are available on a first come, first served basis.

    • For customers who are dining outside, we will continue to offer full table service.

    • For customers who are only drinking, we will aim to offer table service. However, we are happy to allow those customers to also order directly from the bar. To help us maintain social distancing, we request that customers adhere to the floor markings clearly displayed.

    • A maximum table which we will be able to safely accept is for 6 guests.


  • General Guidelines:

    • As per the Government’s current guidelines, we will no longer be enforcing the wearing of face masks. However, we at The Black Prince would prefer masks to be worn when arriving & departing from inside tables, and we respectfully ask that customers assist us in keeping everyone safe by wearing one.

    • We will be continuing with our one-way system. Please help us to keep our staff and other customers extra safe by sticking to this.

    • We respectfully request that our younger customers are always kept seated & supervised by parents to maintain social distancing.

    • To help keep our staff and other customers extra safe, we request that all customers remain seated during their visit as much as is practically possible.

    • We will continue to provide sanitize stations for customers to sanitize their hands. We respectfully request that these are used by all customers.

    • Under no circumstances will customers be permitted to stand at the bar unless ordering drinks from the designated areas.



We understand that each business will have its own methods and policies in place, and that these can create confusion. The above guidelines are what we at The Black Prince have decided are the best way to keep our staff & customers safe, which throughout the entire pandemic has always been our priority. We respectfully request that all customers adhere to the guidelines set out.
