Roffey club 27 June at 12:47 · Welcome back to The Roffey Club following lockdown, we are re-opening on the 4th July, to enable us to keep the social distancing and in the interest of our members and staff we need to implement a few guidelines, we all know this is a pain but it’s for everyone’s safety. Sadly we can only admit members and cards will need to be shown on the door, no card no entry, this is due to limited numbers. When arriving at the club you will be greeted by a committee member, please follow the advice and instructions given to you at this time. A one way system will be in place, so if you need to use the toilets or smoke you will have to leave by the fire door and come back round to the entrance again, once outside you are not allowed back in through the fire door, (Staff only). Orders will be taken at your table where you will find a table number, payment is preferred by card but we will accept cash, at this time we would like you to be patient as service may be a little slower than usual. Please be aware that any unruly behaviour ie, shouting not following the guidelines or drunk, you will be asked to leave no ifs or buts. A member of staff will be carrying out regular cleaning duties through their shift. Children are welcome with the families but normal rules will apply for them to leave the bar at the time’s noted. All drinks will be in a plastic tumbler, if you wish to have a glass you are welcome to bring your own, or you can purchase one from the bar for a small fee which you can take home clean and re-use if you so wish. We will be changing our hours for the foreseeable future, but will review as government guidelines change. Opening hours are Monday to Thursday 1800-2230 Friday 1600-2230 Saturday 1500-1030 Sunday 1300-2100 Football will be screened without sound, soft music will be played in the background, this is to discourage people from shouting and again keeping our members and staff safe. First day open happy hour for the duration of bar hours, at last order we request you drink up and leave promptly so cleaning can commence.Don’t forget we are limited to the amount of people that can be seated, if we reach our capacity then some members will be turned away, for this we apologise in advance, however again we have to adhere to the guidelines issued by the government. See you all soon
from Joe Headford "Hi Alyn the snooker rooms are out of bounds only the members bar is open in line with social distancing sorry. We also have major works being carried out in the function room. The flooring is being replaced due to water damage over the years."
The Windmill Crawley now open as from today ............ One way system, enter via the Pool bar, give name telephone number and Postcode; leave via beer garden; Hand sanitisers on hand. Normal glasses and 1m only distancing. waitress service, cash reluctantly accepted; Tables have 'cleaned' notice on them; on floor, black and yellow tape which you must not cross; Good atmosphere, locals finding it hilarious when customers try to come in through the 'out' door. Or cross the tape illegally; Pool tables out of bounds (bar billiards subject to same rules); No football being shown on TV's but continual music (medium volume) piped from behind bar; Police will be touring the vicinity throughout the day in case of infringements - by venues that is, not targeting drinkers; But at least the pub's open for business (Greene King gave the landlady choice of today or Monday) - and fingers crossed everything could be back to normal a month hence.
