COVID-19 changes

Our priority is to keep our customers and staff safe at all times and to follow government guidelines. We’ve outlined our changes below to help make your visit safe, stress-free and fun!

Social distancing
We’ve reduced the number of tables upstairs to meet social distancing requirements, and added new seating downstairs with some standing-only tables. We’ve also positioned seven public hand-sanitiser stations around CRATE and increased cleaning frequency. Our front stairs will be up only, with our rear stairs for exiting.

As an outdoor venue, all our seating is usable by groups of up to six people from different households, or larger groups if from two different households. Please follow social distancing within groups.

We won’t be operating a reservation system – it’s turn up and find a table. We’ll keep this approach under review..

The Untraditional Pub from Pillars Brewery 
The Untraditional Pub is table-service only, with Pillars staff taking orders and card payments (an ordering App is being developed). From time to time The Untraditional Pub will operate their downstairs mobile bar for quick-purchase pints. Pub opening hours - Mon-Wed: 4-11pm, Thur-Fri: 2-11pm, Sat: 12noon-11pm, Sun: 12noon-10pm

Ordering food
Order and collect food as before - from the individual food business of your choice. Please find a table before ordering. Check with individual vendors Instagram or websites for opening times.

CRATE is a fully cash-free site, so it’s contactless payments throughout.

We’ll be playing music on our sound system and have regular DJs for background sound.

Many of you enjoyed our classic games, but unfortunately these can’t be used at this time. We now have activity sheets for older children and colouring books and pencils for younger ones.

Track & Trace
To help keep everyone safe and follow government guidelines, we ask all visitors to enter one group contact email and your table number via a simple web page. We’ll time-stamp your arrival and keep your email address for the required 21 days.
