A Falmouth pub has revealed how it plans to start welcoming back customers from next month - in what it believes will be town’s biggest covered outdoor licensed space.

The Working Boat will be putting up a large-scale marquee on its private quay next to the Greenbank Hotel, which will be in-situ through the summer giving people the chance to dine outside rain or shine.

The Greenbank gardens will also have picnic benches, spaced safely apart to ensure social distancing, for open air drinks, Working Boat classics and pizzas.

The Working Boat 'mar-quay' will launch on the evening of Saturday, July 4 for dinner service, from 5.30pm until 7.30pm, with a maximum of six people per booking.

The pub’s horsebox bar will be open for drinks throughout the day, from 12 noon until late.

There will also be outside public toilets and full table service.

Managing director Ben Young said: “Our safe haven awaits you. Returning from July 4 with fresh sea air, safe distancing and our traditional pub atmosphere fully intact, we’re ready to welcome you back on board.”

Sunday roasts are returning from July 5, served from midday until they’re finished and the Sunday night pub quiz begins at 7.30pm, with optional donations to Hospitality Action.

Then from Monday, July 6 onwards, the pub marquee will be open every day for lunch and dinner – and inside as well, if permitted – as well as drinks from midday until close.

The pub said its marquee has a strictly limited maximum capacity, to ensure the safety of both visitors and staff, and in line with UK government guidelines, meaning bookings are strongly recommended.

At this point in time, the pub will only be accepting card and contactless payments.
