A spokesperson for the pub said via the awards website: “Throughout the lockdown we communicated with all our staff with weekly texts, Zoom staff meetings which were all about maintaining staff morale. 

“The target was to try to keep all 11 staff in work on the same pay, conditions and training regimes that we had established long before lockdown. I was acutely aware that staff may become anxious about contracting COVID-19, so all of them were sent an NHS document on coronavirus anxiety.

“We used an independent company to prepare our documentation and audit our premises, we use our general manager, Sammie Harris and manager, Eleanor Clavin to manage this process with me.

“The result of which is that at the end of the meeting, our staff feel confident and safe, and feel that we are doing the same for our customers. We achieved a Gold Standard for our COVID-19 preparations, and this was an achievement shared by all staff.”

The winners of the awards will be announced on September 24.
