WE RECOMMEND checking back here prior to your visit for any changes and updates with regards to food service and opening times, and Covid regulations.
Our old foe COVID, is not gone or forgotten… and therefore We are recommending all guests take a lateral flow test before coming. ‘Latty flows’, as they have become affectionally known, are not 100% reliable so if in any doubt, please take into consideration other people coming who may have vulnerable relatives who you could infect, and we sadly ask you stay away. We are very conscious we need to protect our staff, our guests and their families.
Frequently Asked Questions can be found at the bottom of this page.
WAITLIST: If you’d like to be added to our waitlist on a specific day when we are fully booked, please feel free to email.
HIGHCHAIRS Please book your table to include this in your numbers and contact us directly to ensure there is a highchair available.
DOGS Use the dog friendly option to book lunch or dinner. Please do not use the special requests, as this will not be guaranteed and may lead to disappointment. You will be seated in either the Bar or the Snug. The maximum size dog friendly table we have available, is for 6 people.
How can I cancel my table?
We understand your plans may change and you may need to cancel your table. The quickest and easiest way to do this is to use the link found at the bottom of your confirmation email.
How can I amend my guest numbers?
If you’d like to amend your booking, please reply back to your confirmation email – this will link the adjustment directly to your booking.
May I book a certain table/room?
Whilst we do our best to seat you in the room or at the table you prefer, we are unable to guarantee tables.
May I book a table to eat in the garden?
You are no longer able to book online outside on the patio, however, if there is availability on the patio on your arrival you are welcome to move to dine there.
Are there heaters in the covered areas outside?
We do have heaters, however, these take the chill off rather than heat, so we suggest you still wrap up warmly.
May I book a table for pre-dinner drinks or drinks without a meal?
For pre dinner drinks please be aware your table may be occupied before your reservation time. However, we have tables in the bar, patio and garden available on a first come, first served basis. We are not able to book these for drinks.
It is important I contact you quickly. What is the best way?
Give us a call and we will do our very best to assist you as soon as possible. Please do leave a message if you are unable to get through during busy service times, we will receive your message soon after and respond as quickly as possible.
Do you have full disabled access in the pub?
The pub is on one level and is has full disabled access and toilets. If you are booking a table please do let us know in advance to ensure we place you at a table suitable for a wheelchair. There is disabled parking outside the front door.
Do you have a children’s menu?
Yes and all main courses from the menu may be ordered in child portions.
I have a dietary requirement, are you able to cater me?
We do our very best to meet all dietary requirements and cater for allergies. We are able to offer vegetarian and vegan dishes, but please be aware we are a meat led pub and your choice will be limited. For all of the above please do let us know in advance (and again when your order is taken).
May I bring a cake for our dessert?
You’re welcome to bring a cake. There is a charge of £10 if the majority of your table choose not to have desserts.
Can I bring decorations for the table?
Please do, however, we politely request no glitter.
May I bring my dog?
Well behaved dogs are welcome in the bar, snug, patio, shed and garden. Please use the ‘Dog Friendly tables’ and ‘The Shed’ – booking type, to reserve your dog friendly table.
Why do you need a card authorisation?
Due to the increase in cancellations, we respectfully ask guests of parties of 7 or more people to provide card authorisation details at the time of booking. Note – no funds will be taken at the time of booking, however we shall charge a cancellation fee of £5 per person should you fail to show for your reservation. We thank you in advance for your understanding.
To clarify there is a £5 per person cancellation charge (for parties of 7 or more) who cancel within 5 days of the booking, or for those who do not arrive for their booking at all.
This charge helps us to maintain the numbers for which we have planned to cater and staff. Prior to its introduction, last minute cancellations and no shows were crippling the business and even now it in no way covers our costs or lost revenue. When cancelling at short notice or indeed if people do not arrive for their table reservation at all, we are rarely able to re-sell these tables or have the time to juggle the seating arrangements to allow further diners the opportunity to join us.
Like other industries, hospitality has struggled through the restrictions of Covid-19, but we have done our utmost to maintain an environment that allows us the ability to keep our doors safely open, all our staff employed and our continued support of local suppliers.
The card authorisation is clear at the time of booking; in our online booking policy which you must manually tick to book a table, given verbally when booking over the phone and written in our emailed booking confirmation.
We understand some guests feel this may be harsh given the reasons they’re unable to attend. However, the majority of guests cancelling have very good reasons and whilst empathetic, unfortunately the cumulative knock-on effect to the pub, is huge and hard hitting.
We would like to thank you for your support of The Brisley Bell and your understanding of these measures that we have had to put in place to protect our ability to trade.
Please note, when completing your card authorisation, your postcode where the card is registered, is required.
