THE Woolly Sheep in Skipton says it has put a series of measures in place to ensure the safety of customers and staff now it has reopened following the relaxing of coronavirus restrictions.

The Timothy Taylor’s managed inn has made ‘significant’ investment to ensure it meets Government requirements, such as dry mist ‘fogging’ sanitising and the coronavirus testing of staff .

Screens have been installed, there is seated table service only, and single entry and exit points, increased cleaning and a reduced menu.

Steve Robinson, from Timothy Taylor’s, said: “We have taken a lot of time and effort to ensure the safety of our staff and customers.

“Timothy Taylor’s and the Woolly Sheep both recognise that many customers will feel apprehensive about returning to the pub, while others will feel more comfortable. Therefore, they are taking care to try and accommodate all attitudes in plans for reopening and would ask for patience during this time.”
