Some important guidelines will be evident when Wetherspoon's White Horse pub and restaurant in Brigg reopens on 'Super Saturday' (July 4) following Coronavirus emergency lockdown which has been in force since late March.
'Spoons' (as many locals call it) attracts more customers than any other hostelry in the town centre, and the national chain which owns it will be employing a range of measures to ensure the continuing safety of visitors and staff at the Wrawby Street premises from Saturday morning onwards.
"Observe signage about moving around the pub," the company says. "For example, queuing... keeping left in any corridors and using entry and exit points."
It adds: "Keep the bar area clear. Please queue at the till."
Furniture has been positioned for social distancing and should not be moved by customers.
The company is highlighting the availability of its Wetherspoon 'app' which customers can install on their mobile phones and use to order food and drink while visiting the White Horse. 

"Table Service" supplied through the app will deal with the delivery of meals and process payment.
"Dedicated employees" will be deployed at all times to clean and sanitise the premises, including its toilets.
On arrival, customers are being asked to wash their hands or use a sanitiser.
While on the premises they are asked to avoid shaking hands and also refrain from shaking hands and coming into close contact with others.
J D Wetherspoon is asking people not to arrange to meet in large groups at its pubs and is requesting that respect is shown to all staff. "They are here to help you," the company stresses.
Top of the list of guidelines is: "Visit the pub only if you feel well."
