CAMRA advice for getting back to the pub (England version)


As pubs reopen, we’re all looking forward to getting back to our locals, having a pint and enjoying the social aspects of pub going. Things are going to look and feel a little different. That’s why we’ve put together our advice on what to expect, and how you can get back to the pub responsibly and safely.

Who you can go to the pub with:

If you are sitting inside, members of your household and one other household (or support bubble)
If you are sitting outside, members of your household and one other household (or support bubble), or you and up to five other people from different households

What you should expect:

In most circumstances, order and be served at your table
To see signs telling you where to go and how to use the pub safely
To give some details like your name and a phone number to help with contact tracing
For the moment, no live entertainment or loud music.
If the weather takes a turn for the worse, you might not be allowed to shelter inside.

You can help by:

Listening to the staff and following instructions on signs
Waiting patiently in queues
Washing your hands or using hand sanitising stations - especially when you arrive and leave, or use the toilets
Ordering remotely where you can – whether through an app or website
Staying in your allocated seating area as much as possible
Using contactless payments where possible

A few dos and don’ts

Do go back to the pub where you can – pubs need our custom to help them through this difficult time
Do plan ahead and book in advance where possible
Don’t take your empties back to the bar – for the moment, this isn’t helpful for staff

Don’t come to the pub if you, or someone in your household or support bubble has symptoms of COVID-19 – stay at home and follow NHS advice
