"We will be open at 3pm daily from Wednesday 8th July & look forward to seeing you then. The kitchen will remain closed, meaning that in compliance with Government guidelines, you will be able to enjoy your drinks outside where a table service only policy will operate. We have been very busy putting measures in place to keep us all safe as well. These will all be explained to you on arrival & I'd really appreciate your co-operation. My staff are behind me 100% in my choice to open, please respect the fact they are putting their own health at risk during every shift. Also, many thanks to the Management & all the Crew of R.I.F.L who have been brilliant in looking after us all. Take care. X"
