Covid-19 Response

Welcoming you back to the The Furze Bush Inn

Before we closed our doors when lockdown was announced, we’d already made some significant changes to the way we were doing certain aspects of our daily tasks to keep the hotel, bars and restaurant safe & clean. While we were closed, we worked hard to ensure that everything we offer, has been reviewed and revised so that we can make certain that when we offer this to you, it can be done so not only with exceptional service, but also, and perhaps most importantly, safely.

We will be constantly monitoring the COVID 19 situation and any developments in the Government’s guidance. We are committed to continuing to do all that we can, to ensure that we are and will continue to be Covid-19 safe and secure.

We are looking forward to your next visit to The Furze Bush Inn and are delighted to share with you some more information about what you can expect when you visit us next. The Government has recently announced that it is now law that face masks or face coverings in public areas, this includes hotels, bars and restaurants. We will therefore need to ask you to wear a mask in all  public areas. The masks/face coverings can be removed when eating or drinking in the bar and restaurant or gardens.

Our coronavirus hygiene & safety measures

We are working hard to ensure we deliver a quality but safe experience for all our guests. Some of our measures include; pre-arrival check-in and registration, social distancing throughout the hotel, in-room dining at no extra cost, and consistent cleanliness, hygiene and safe food handling using coronavirus-effective products and processes.

Our Guest Promise

Our guests will know and have come to expect, that exceptional service, pristine housekeeping, hygiene and safety have always been amongst our values at The Furze Bush Inn and delivering these consistently is part of our commitment on a daily basis. We confirm that we have complied with the ‘Covid-19 Secure guidance on managing the risk of Covid-19. Due to the changing nature of the situation and therefore the guidance that will arise as a result, our procedures and operations will be constantly reviewed and updated where necessary.

The information that we’re sharing with you about how we will operate might need to change and therefore this will be subject to review and change without notice. We are asking for the support and assistance of our guests in this new environment so that we can
