TEMPORARY CLOSURE - UPDATED 1st July 2020
Dear Friends of St Mary’s Inn,
Despite the Government confirming that pubs, bars, restaurants and hotels will be allowed to open on 4th July, under specific distancing restrictions and other COVID-19 safety measures, the ongoing welfare of our staff and customers are paramount to us.

Our conclusions are that St Mary's Inn will remain closed until we are convinced in the future that we can control events safely and in a hospitable trading environment.
We appreciate all the messages of support we have received and we will certainly be back when conditions permit us to serve you all in a safe environment.
Best wishes to all,
St Mary’s Inn.
