Given the unfolding situation regarding COVID-19, we wanted to provide you with an update on the precautionary measures we are putting into place at The Hopbine to protect our staff, customers, suppliers and the wider community.
Following the latest government advice, we will be closing our doors for guests until further notice. There is good news! We don't feel that we can leave such a wonderful asset as The Hopbine out of use for long periods when many others might be struggling for hot food or drinks. Friendships, too.
So, we have stocked our larders and now offer a delivery only service from Tuesday - Saturday, 4pm - 9pm and on Sunday from 12pm - 2pm for roasts. Delivery areas include Matfield, Brenchley, Horsmonden and Paddock Wood. All orders must paid for over the phone.
While we have always had strict hygiene practices and cleaning standards in place, as a precaution, we have introduced a number of additional measures to reduce the risk and support a safe environment. Aligned with Government and expert health advice, these measures include, thorough washing of hands and more frequent cleaning and disinfecting, particularly food and beverage preparation areas.
We will open once again when we, as one planet, have survived this ordeal. When we do, we promise to be a place of security and warmth, where people can band together and rebuild.
