WE ARE DELIGHTED TO BE REOPENING OUR GARDEN FROM MONDAY 12TH APRIL.
Please note that our standard door policies remain in place. The Oak is exclusively an over-18's venue and we are unable to accommodate children. We operate a no work-clothing dress policy, so smart casual attire is recommended.
IF I HAVEN’T BOOKED CAN I JUST TURN UP?
Booking in advance is strongly advised at all times but not exclusively required, and we will be doing our best to accommodate any walk-ins that we can.
To combat the possibility of ‘no-shows’ we are holding back a proportion of our tables for walk-ins, so even if our diary looks full and you are unable to book in online, please feel free to pop in on the day to see if we have any of these tables available.
HOW BIG CAN MY PARTY BE?
The current maximum table size we can accommodate is for six guests.
Please note that we are unable to seat multiple tables together for guests from the same group to sit next to each other. Increased distance between tables and screen dividers make conversations between tables impossible, which may present situations where tables break social distancing rules to be able to chat. This then puts us in a difficult situation to keep all other customers and staff safe.
Any multiple bookings made in the same name will be contacted and unfortunately cancelled.
HOW LONG CAN I STAY AT MY TABLE?
Bookings are for a maximum of two hours.
If your table is not being reused after your booking we may be able to extend your time at the table on the day, at the discretion of the management.
However with limited capacity and a high level of demand there is a limit of one booking per person, back-to-back bookings will be contacted and unfortunately cancelled.
CAN I COME JUST FOR DRINKS OR DO I HAVE TO EAT A MEAL?
Updated guidance from the government no longer requires alcohol to be ordered alongside a ‘substantial meal’ so you are welcome to come just for drinks.
Food will be available however, as we are pleased to be teaming up with our partner business Street. When enjoying your drinks you'll also have the option of ordering food from the new Street in the Garden menu, featuring a selection of favourites from their smoke, grill & burger menu, everyday from 12noon.
WE LOOK FORWARD TO WELCOMING YOU SAFELY
Your welfare and that of our staff is paramount. In order to protect everybody, we continue to abide by the government and local authority restrictions in force, and ask that you continue to act responsibly and make the safe decisions when visiting us.
By booking with us you confirm that the members of your group are not showing any symptoms of COVID-19, are not living in a household or support bubble with someone who has symptoms, and are not currently being advised to self-isolate by the NHS.
We will continue to concentrate our staff's time on maintaining our high levels of hygiene, service and customer experience. We trust that our customers will act responsibly and make the safe decision when booking with us. Click here to view our full risk assessment.
