Covid 19

Following the latest government announcement the Beechwood Hotel will be closed from Wednesday 4th November at 11am, until Wednesday 2nd December at 12 noon

From 24 September businesses selling food or drink, including Bars and Restaurants, must be closed at 10pm

From Monday 14 September it will be illegal for people in England to gather in groups of more than six. The limit of six people from up to six households will apply to adults and children, indoors and outdoors, in homes, gardens, parks, and venues such as pubs and restaurants.

From Saturday 8 August the places where you will have to wear a face covering will be expanded to include public areas in Hotels. You will be required to wear a face covering in all indoor public areas of the Hotel with the exception of those who are exempt. In the Bar and Restaurant, you may remove these once seated as face coverings are not required in restaurants with table service.
