Situated just up from the Hove seafront, The Connaught is one of Brighton & Hove's best all-round pubs. We are part of the renowned Brakespear Brewery family and pride ourselves on our family-friendly atmosphere, delicious home-cooked food and great wine, cocktails and ale selections.
We are child-friendly every day until 7pm, please let us know if there are children in your party when booking in the restaurant.
Dogs are more than welcome in our bar area & garden but not in the restaurant, dogs must be kept on a lead at all times.
MAXIMUM NUMBER OF PEOPLE AT TABLES
We will not be allowing groups any bigger than six to be seated at any one table, moving two tables together or taking chairs from other tables to make the table bigger will not be allowed.
ORDERING FOOD AND DRINKS
We encourage you to order with our waiting staff rather than the bar but if you have to then we allow one person from your table to come to the bar and order for everyone. Please make sure you leave space between anyone ordering before you if you do this.
We have installed hand sanitizers throughout the building, please use them as often as you can. All our staff have access to hand sanitizers behind the bar and will be using them throughout the shift. In order to reassure you our staff will have their temperature taken before they start work, if any of our staff are worried they are showing symptoms they will be asked to stay at home and we will carry on paying them whilst they self isolate.
PUSHCHAIRS / BIKES
For the time being we will not be allowing pushchairs or bikes on the premises at any time, this will be reviewed on a weekly basis and we will update you on any changes.
Under 18s will need to leave the pub (including garden) by 7pm.
The New Normal
As you know things are a bit strange at the moment and while we would love to just open the doors and welcome you all back as we did before we have had to put a few rules in place to keep you and our staff safe. This is all new to us so please be patient while we try to perfect the service we give to you under these new rules.
The practices we have put in place are not permanent and we will ease them as soon as we think it is safe to do so, we hope you understand.
As per government guidelines we will need to take contact details of all our customers for test and trace purposes. We have a dedicated phone line for this and ask all our customers to text or WhatsApp their first name to 07566 887293. These messages will be deleted after 21 days and the staff have no access to them.
We are taking bookings for tables in the restaurant for dining but not the bar area or garden.
In line with government guidelines all our tables are at least 1 metre apart (more where possible). Please do not move tables or chairs. We have taken away the bar stools to create more space for people in the bar and customers will not be allowed to stand around the bar area while drinking.
Dogs will still be allowed in the bar area and garden (not the restaurant) but must be kept on a short leash at all times. Please keep dogs off the furniture and not blocking any walk ways.
We know this is a lot to ask of you, pubs are supposed to be a fun place to go and relax with your friends and we are trying to make this as normal as possible (we hate it just as much as you)!
If you have any questions, would like to book a table or have any suggestions please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Much love and we can’t wait to see you from the 13th July
The Connaught Team
