Anspach & Hobday’s London venues are re-opening for table-service, drink-in, draught beer. The Pigeon, its Camberwell beer bar and bottle shop, will be open from Saturday, 4th July, and The Croydon Taproom from Saturday, 11th July.
The brewer is partnering with OpenTable to facilitate bookings online. Through OpenTable, it can accurately record people’s information within GDPR guidelines, safely manage demand and the timeflow of bookings, and ensure the safety of staff and customers. Government guidelines on social distancing and mixing with other households will apply.
Due to the size of the venues, The Pigeon will have no more than 20 guests at any one time, and The Croydon Taproom no more than 30.
Brewery co-founder, Jack Hobday, said: “We’re overwhelmed by the support we have had during the crisis — thank you to our supporters and customers! You have kept us going and given us the opportunity to adapt.
“We are equally thrilled to be re-opening to provide our customers with fresh drink-in draught beer again! It is going to be a little different, but with the measures we have in place, our fantastic staff, table service, our great selection of beers and wines, we believe we really can offer a special experience and one that we know has been sorely missed by all during lockdown. We’re following every bit of advice we can, and I hope this can be a turning point for our industry.”
