Covid-19 Safety Measures

In order to ensure the safety of our staff & guests, as well as to comply with recent government regulations, we are implementing the following safety measures.

Guest Register To Track & Trace 

We will have to collect details of everyone who visits the pub to help track & Trace in case of Coronavirus outbreak. For the purpose of contact tracing, we will need a record of your full name, phone number as well as the date & time of your booking. Your data will be kept for 21 days since the day you visit the pub. The purpose of data collection is to assist NHS Test & Trace with request for the data if needed, and will not be used for any other purposes.

Hand Sanitising Stations

Hand sanitising will be offered at the entrance and at other locations in the pub. Please wash your hands.



Well behaved children are very welcome at The DB, there’s a kids section on the menu and plenty of board games (for use outside of social distancing) to keep them occupied. Baby changing facilities are situated rather politically incorrectly in the Ladies toilet. We have several high chairs available.


Well behaved & on the leash dogs are welcome throughout the pub, we have water bowls & biscuits available. Please be respectful of diners, some may bite.


There is paid street parking immediately outside the pub & a Pay & Display car park at the rear of the pub. On Sundays the car park is free. There is even some free parking nearby but you’ll have to be swift and it’s only for a couple of hours.


Our garden is compact & bijou with space for about 25 people. We don’t book tables out there.

Wheelchair Access

We are a rather lovely Grade 2 listed building so there are a couple of hefty steps at the front of the pub so we have access to the bar area from the car park behind the pub. The gate is often locked for security reasons so it’s worth mentioning when you book and then we can be on hand to roll out the red carpet.

Dietary Requirements

We try to be as flexible as possible with dietary & allergy requirements. We have a separate gluten free & vegan menu but if you have something more ‘niche’ feel free to email or call & we’ll do our best accommodate.
