A pub in Marlow has recently been given an ‘AA Covid-19 confident’ certificate.

The Kings Head, on Church Road, received the certificate on August 20, as the AA believe the pub has reached its criteria in terms for safety as lockdown restrictions across the country have started to ease.

In a brief Facebook post that was published on August 28, a spokesperson from the Kings Head said: “We are proud to announce that we have been certified by AA as Covid-19 confident.

“All of our measures and precautions taken during this time have been to make sure everyone can enjoy themselves safely and at ease.”

This was met with praise by regulars, with one person saying on Facebook: “We feel very safe at your pub - well deserved accolade for your hard work!”

The scheme was set up by AA to help support the hospitality industry, by giving confidence to customers who want to return visiting their favourite restaurants and pubs, following the ease of lockdown.

This is a free scheme and is open to hospitality establishments that pass their criteria.

All applicants are encouraged to make a donation to Hospitality Action.
