The Fullers website now has Reopening page listing which of their pubs will reopen on Saturday 4th July. See www.fullers.co.uk/firstpint
I had been in contact with Judith Norman of the Ye Olde Mitre and asked when Fuller’s pubs, including her own should open.
She replied that Fuller’s plan on July 4th to open their biggest pubs and/or those with large beer gardens, then medium size ones, leaving the smallest ones like the Ye Olde Mitre and Harp amongst the last to open in London.
I have checked the Fuller’s Coronavirus page, www.fullers.co.uk/coronavirus-faqs
Below is the latest statement from Chief Executive, Chris Emeny
A message from our Chief Executive
At Fuller’s, we pride ourselves on creating exceptional experiences for our customers and we can’t wait to reopen our doors and welcome you back into our pubs and hotels. At the heart of delivering those experiences are our teams, and making sure that they feel confident and safe at work is vital to delivering the great hospitality Fuller’s is known for.
While we’ve been closed, we have been working on enhancing our procedures and rolling out new protocols and training to ensure a safe, clean and welcoming environment for our customers and our teams. All our team members are receiving training on new ways of working to combat the spread of coronavirus and to make your visit as safe, comfortable and enjoyable as possible.
We will undertake a phased approach to the reopening of our pubs, starting with a small number of pubs on 4 July and more to follow shortly after. This will allow us to carefully test our new approach and use these learnings to open the remaining pubs and hotels in our estate.
We can’t wait to open the doors to our pubs. As we’ve said all along, we are ready, waiting and excited to welcome you back.
Simon Emeny, Chief Executive
There is more information on that page, including answers to FAQs.
I assume that Fuller’s will soon have a list of which pubs should be opening first on the website.
I will certainly keep monitoring the situation.
