Update from our bar manager….
Lift Off!!! It’s Alfresco April and time for us reopen the Bar, Sporting Activities will resume at the Club too.
On Monday Boris gave us the green light to Open from Monday 12th April and our guidance that follows will apply until the next stage of the Roadmap, which will hopefully be Monday 17th May.
You will be aware, the press having rammed down our throats, that we can open the bar, but only through table service outdoors to customers adhering to the rule of six, that are seated and remain seated whilst they consume their food and drink.
Yippee, I hear you say, but how is it all going to work?
Those of you that joined us last summer will have embraced the impromptu Beer Garden we invented on the edge of the cricket pitch. Well, we have made this feature permanent with hard work from our club volunteers and kind sponsorship from Oakwood Mortgages with new rustic fencing, picnic benches and top quality, bistro furniture all the way from Coventry.
We have the capacity to seat over 150 people whilst abiding to the regulations and keeping Social distancing in place. This will make us “The” place to be seen in Town this spring.
We will be taking orders in person from tables, or you can use our new web ordering system which can be found at: https://menus.preoday.com/Horsham-Cricket-and-Sports-Club.
Each table will be numbered to help you with your order.
Initially Members only, can book a table by emailing admin@Horshamsportsclub.com preferably giving us 24 hours notice, leaving a name/time/date/number of customers/contact number to secure your spot. We will get back to you to confirm. There are no time limits for each visit but if you fail to show within 10 minutes of your booking time we will free up your table to others and place you on the naughty list. We will also let you know if we shut due to bad weather.
La Creperie will continue to complement our Bar service with their food offering, look out for their weekend BBQ’s and Spit Roasts in the Garden this summer.
Sorry but for now there will be no takeaway drinks facility available, you will need to be seated in the beer garden in order to purchase drinks.
We hope the weather will be kind to us all, however, best come prepared for the worst.
The Clubhouse remains closed, apart from the toilets, and there will be no option to come inside if things become inclement. Hopefully the weather will not be so bad that we have to close, but our opening hours understandably will be flexible, drinking is like Golf, no fun in the rain.
Our operating hours for the first week are as follows:
Mon 12th April – Thurs 15th April,
Bar Midday – 9pm,
La Creperie 9am – 8pm.
Fri 16th April and Sat 17th April,
Bar 11 am – 10pm.
La Creperie 9am – 9pm.
Sun 18th April,
Bar 11 am – 9pm,
LA Creperie 9 am – 8pm.
After this we will review the demand and hopefully keep similar hours until May 17th.
Our staff will be operating within Government guidelines and we ask you to do the same. This way we can remain open for everyone to enjoy themselves. We are lucky we have plenty of outside space to keep the Club thriving, so please do not ask us to bend the rules or blame us for adhering to them.
I’ve booked the sunshine for the 12th so hope to see you then.
