Thank you and welcome back…

“It has been a year like no other for us all and especially at The Dorset Arms, Withyham. We have opened, closed and re-opened and then closed again, all in line with the Government guidelines.  We know that without the commitment of our dedicated team and the support of our suppliers and our wonderful customers this would not have been possible.

At the start of the first lockdown period we provided a take-away service, free to anyone who was in need and in isolation. We were overwhelmed by the support this initiave received, not only locally, but nationwide – generous donations enabled us to continue the provision with endless kind offers of local deliveries and ‘taxis’ to further afield.   Unfortunately we were unable to continue with this as like many other pubs we had to furlough our staff and close completely.

Over the last 12 months we have all come to appreciate how important pubs are as the hub of the community; as a place to come together, socialise, relax, unwind and see friends old and new.

So it is with great excitement, that we will open our large gardens on Monday 12th April for outside dining and then inside dining from Saturday 17th May to welcome you all back to The Dorset Arms.”

Best wishes
