Supporting your local pub

Pubs will be doing all they can to make it safe for you customers to return and they’ll also be asking you to help keep them safe; any rules they put in place are there to protect both you and staff so it’s vitally important they’re followed.

COVID-19 Measures

Pubs up and down the country have been working hard during lockdown to ensure that when they re-open the doors to pubs and bars, it is safe to do so.

Pubs have implemented a range of safe distancing measures which you will see when you visit them. This may include:

  • Social distancing measures and safety signage
  • All staff wearing face masks
  • Enhanced cleaning regimes
  • Hand sanitiser stations throughout our pubs and bars
  • Single use menus
  • At table order service for food and drink
  • Increased provision for contactless payment
  • Single entrance and exit points where possible

Order and pay using the Round app

You can now order and pay for food and drink at your local pub using the new Round app.

Following the recent Government reopening guidance, more and more pubs are implementing mobile ordering apps. Round will help reduce the contact and interactions between you and bar staff, making your next pub visit as safe as possible.
