I know many of you keep up to date with the latest news but we are so pleased the Scottish Government are allowing Clubhouses to re-open from Monday 26th of April 2021 but sadly there are quite a few caveats so in short, we are not currently allowed to serve alcohol inside and we must close the main Bar Lounge at 8pm. But we can continue to serve alcohol outside until 22:00 and it’s still table service only.
The regulations allow 4 people from 2 different households to sit together inside and 6 people from 6 different households can congregate outside but we must observe hospitality social distancing by keeping at least 1 metre apart.
All very confusing really, but these Level 3 restrictions will last until 17 May 2021 and assuming the improvement continues we may move to level 2 but this is not a guarantee.
So, for the moment I would like to confirm our opening and closing times on a week by week basis as opening criteria is based on changes in covid-19 regulations, agreed set-times by the Board of Directors and extended special event times which allows us to open until 22:00.
Firstly, the Clubhouse facilities will be open daily from 06:00 until 22:00
Secondly, our hours of service for the Bar & Catering for the first week are as follows:
Monday 26 April – 11:00 until 22:00
Tuesday 27 April – 11:00 until 22:00
Wednesday 28 April – 11:00 until 20:00
Thursday 29 April – 11:00 until 17:00
Friday 30 April – 08:00 until 22:00
Saturday 01 May – 09:30 until 22:00
Sunday 02 May – 09:30 until 22:00
Thirdly, we kindly ask you to adhere to our Clubhouse Covid-19 guidelines by following our well signed one way system, wearing masks at all times until you are seated, check-in upon arrival by signing the track and trace sheet or use the ‘Check in Scotland’ QR Code with your mobile and refrain from moving furniture due to strict social distancing procedures.

Please remember, it’s strictly table service only and do not approach the bar.
Finally, although membership cards are now live, these will not be required for payment at this time. If anyone is still to receive their membership cards please be patient as it will be with you as quickly as possible. Further information with regards to the membership will follow in due course.
And a final, finally – due to incredibly difficult pre-opening challenges due to Covid-19 and Brexit, please be understanding with the front of house staff, we are trying to keep everyone as safe and secure as possible and deliver the best service we can giving the current circumstances.
