We are all excited that The Regent is opening back up again from the 3rd Aug. Alan and the team are working hard to ensure all the final safety measures are in place to keep both staff and customers safe.
The Regent are following a clear policy on group size to comply with COVID19 regulations, and they will not be taking bookings or allocating tables of more than 8 people. Add to this the limit of 3 households per table and that once seated, mingling or table hopping is prohibited.
🔹 THIS MEANS WE WILL NOT BE ABLE TO RESTART THE BEAR SOCIALS UNTIL SOCIAL DISTANCING RESTRICTIONS ARE LIFTED 🔹
We wish Alan and the team all the best with the re-opening, and we are looking forward to getting together again really soon.

If you do decide to drop in to The Regent after they open on the 4th August, here is a brief description of what to expect...
🔹There will be someone on the door, who will allocate you table
🔹It will full be table service and everyone must be seated
🔹A one way systems is in place, and only one person at a time can be in the toilet
🔹Several tables & chairs have been removed so they can enforce social distancing.
🔹Max 3 different households per table
🔹Max table size 8 people
🔹People sitting together must confirm to the pub that they are from the same household, otherwise they must be at least 1 metre apart. Tables have been set up to allow this extra space safely.
🔹Contact details of customers must be recorded for "test & trace"
🔹Once allocated a seat, you must then remain there - people are not allowed to table-hop or "mingle"
These rules are for your safety as a customers and of the staff who are serving you...
I am sure the bears who visit The Regent will do what they can to make the re-opening as easy as possible.
We wanted to keep everyone updated on The status of BearScotFest this year.
You will be aware that all large public events planned for the Summer have already been cancelled, and as of yet we have received no guidance from the Scottish government or our venues as to whether events in the autumn or later will be able to go ahead.
While all arrangements are already in place, we will not commence ticket sales until we get confirmation that large events like this can actually happen, and we take into consideration the impact of social distancing will have on both numbers and your experience of the event.
Please keep watching our page for more information, and we will let you know as soon as we do!
