Heck, if nothing else, we’re learning a lot this year.  It’s a roller coaster, unintended MBA.  The reality of a 2020 hospitality business is that we spend our days (and nights) poring over the small print of new draft guidelines before working out how we implement them without extracting the very essence of hospitality. 

For the moment we remain open in both Wales and Cornwall.  We’re not YET subject to any local restrictions but adhere rigorously to the principle of “There but for the Grace of God…..”.  Our teams continue to work magnificently and we’d take a moment to thank the 99% of you who behaved impeccably when you visited over the Summer.  As for the 1%.... 

RETURN OF THE WINTER ESCAPE

In place in theory when the clocks go back to GMT, but in practice only once half terms are out of the way so this year from Sunday 1 November.  From £170 a night for Dinner B&B in Cornwall and from £175 in Wales. With prices held from 2019, this is really remarkable value. 

We’d encourage you to ask for two or more nights at the moment to ease our Covid arrangements, but the odd single night here and there will be inevitable.  This year we’re running it right up until 23 December before it returns around 4 January.  As ever, enquiries directly to the inn you’d like to visit.

OUR APPROACH

We drafted an essay in July on how things would work when you visited us.  With all of us now much more comfortable with what eating out looks like in 2020, the purpose of this thesis has become more muted.  But we’ve updated it for recent changes and include a link here in case you are thinking of visiting for the first time and would like a little confidence about how it might look.

10PM AND OTHER COVID MISCELLANY

We’ve made the point fairly heftily where we can that the word Curfew is just a bit inappropriate.  We prefer “earlier closing time”.  And our increasingly grey hair means there’s no harm to being in bed a little earlier anyway.  But, in case any of you haven’t been listening, we need to close our doors each night by 10pm in Cornwall.  

This might mean we ask you to be a little flexible in tweaking eating times or you may hear us warn you that drinking up time is imminent.  In Wales we have an extra 20 minutes which we treasure.  These latest rules also ask all of us and you to wear masks around the building except when you’re seated. 

ARTIST OF THE MONTH

Artist of the Month
Marianne Nicholls lives in St. Just, often using the north coast between here and her home as her content.  We’ve not shown her work before but are delighted to change that with the October Artist of the Month show in the snug at The Gurnard’s Head.  If you’re visiting between now and the end of October, please do stop on the way to your table to have a look.  More detail here.
