Let's try again!

I'm now testing negative for COVID. Woohoo!

 

I'll have another go at reopening on

 

 

Thursday 4 November.

As it took only a week or less for me to contract

COVID last time and given that a relative of a friend

is currently on life support with it, for the time being

I will be insisting on proof of vaccination for all my customers.

No proof of vaccination = No beer.

 

This has nothing at all to do with some bizarre

interest in prying into your personal data/health/interests. I won't be sharing the information.  It is simply the only

thing I can do to try to reduce the risk to my

customers and myself.  Apart from anything else,

I can't afford to keep closing and reopening.

I hope you understand.

 

If anybody has any better suggestion, I'm all ears.

If your only objection is on privacy grounds then yes,

I understand the argument but unfortunately

I'm far more concerned about safety.

 

I'm also sticking to allowing

 

 

 

 

SEATED CUSTOMERS ONLY

so capacity will be limited.

There will be no reservation system -

it will be first-come first served..

 

 

 

 

THANKS TO EVERYBODY FOR THEIR SUPPORT. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

WE  ARE  BACK.  AGAIN!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 And of course...

We are now

CLOSED on ALL

Sundays and Mondays.

And we're now on Twitter as @ratracealehouse,

but it all seems a bit pointless as there's no way I can condense the beer list down to

140 lousy, miserable characters, unless somebody out there has some bright ideas?

Thanks to Lorna for the Rat!!

 

Yet more thanks to Martyn Hillier at The Butcher's Arms - click here - for giving me the idea for starting the RRA!

 

If you're in the vicinity of Newark-on-Trent and you need a Micropub fix, why not visit Just Beer?

Or if you're in Ramsgate and need a beer in a Micropub, there's always The Conqueror!

And finally on Micropubs - As I can't keep up with all the new openings across the country, the best examples are all members of the Micropub Association

For those planning a food and drink trip further afield, the Rat heartily recommends visiting De Paterstafel at Watouplein 14, 8978 Watou, Belgium, for great food (Mike - the menu isn't in English!), excellent Belgian beer and a good night's sleep - and Watou is a great place to visit for BEER!
