We are pleased to confirm that from 10am Saturday 4th July, Highgate’s bar will reopen for food and drink purchase.

Our opening hours will be limited in the first couple of weeks as we prioritise the safety and wellbeing of our staff, volunteers and members. Please bear with us as we adjust to our new working practices and follow the government guidelines.

With this in mind, there will be a number of precautions in place around the club regarding the bar and clubhouse area:

  • If you or a member of your household display symptoms of COVID-19, please stay away from the club and follow the government’s self-isola on guidelines.
  • Food and drink will be outside consumption only. Please use the outside tables and chairs placed around the clubhouse and out field and maintain social distancing measures throughout.
  • Access to the clubhouse will be for buying food/drink and toilet use only. Members are asked to leave the clubhouse immediately after this.
  • Access to the bar is from the back (pitch-side) door only. A two-metre distance queueing system will be placed leading up to the bar.

  • The inside of the clubhouse has been cleaned and will continue to be so on a regular basis, especially frequently used surface areas.
