Thomas Babb Brewing Company Limited Coronavirus (Covid-19) Update

At The Blue Bell Inn and The Star and Garter, the safety and well being of all our customers is our highest priority. We know it’s an unsettling situation at the moment and you may have some concerns around coronavirus (Covid-19) which is why we would like to reassure you that we are monitoring the situation extremely closely and are following all advice issued by The World health organisation, the Government, Public Health England and local authorities. It is of vital importance for us to be able to ensure that all procedures are in place to support the health and well being of you all.

There have been no actual or suspected cases of coronavirus across The Blue Bell Inn or The Star and Garter.

However, we are taking the following measures:

  • We have introduced additional cleaning to our already strict routines
  • There are hand-sanitisers available in both Pubs, please feel free to use them
  • Although we are adopting a no-handshake policy, elbow bumps are positively encouraged
  • All our employees are fully aware of the current requirements and are undertaking extreme levels of health and safety procedure to ensure that the highest possible hygiene standards are maintained, throughout every aspect of our pubs.
  • Any member of staff returning from the affected areas abroad – or those who have family members or housemates recently returned from these regions – have automatically been asked to self isolation for seven days. 

Finally, if you are feeling unwell, or have recently returned from an affected area, for the safety of everyone we ask you please to not visit the either pub until you are feeling better. We’ll continue to monitor and review everything we do in order to overcome the current challenges and put your health and well being first.

If you have any further questions, please feel free to email

We would also like to take this opportunity to thank you for your continued support and loyalty in these difficult times.
