The Botany Bay Dorset
Reopening is nearly upon us....

We have taken the decision that we will not be reopening The Botany Bay on the 4th July, but you will at last be able to take advantage of ROOTZ, our well established Pizza, Burgers & Kebabs takeaway business by eating in our garden from 12pm on Saturdays & Sundays and From 5pm Wednesday to Friday until we do reopen fully.

๐ŸŒŸ We will be announcing our opening date & how to book very soon, which will include the launch of our โ€˜NEW - Amazing Sunday Roastsโ€™ and much more....

What have we been doing during lockdown???

We havenโ€™t stopped for one day since we were asked to close on 20th March 2020. Weโ€™ve been flat out running our community pop up shop, supporting all of our local villages with free daily deliveries of shopping and hot meals, ensuring that people who have been self isolating or are vulnerable and unable to get out, were supplied with all of their vital needs.

On top of that we have deep cleaned & decorated inside the pub, spruced up our garden, massively invested in new equipment and fully refurbished our kitchen.

Weโ€™ve setup from scratch, including installing, equipping and launching our new eat in & takeaway business - @ROOTZ Pizzas & Grill. The good news is that it is here to stay and has become well established with free deliveries up to 4.5 miles and includes a delivery service to customers within 10 miles of us for a small charge.
From Saturday 4th July 2020 you are free to come and enjoy your food in our garden from 12pm on Saturdays & Sundays and Wednesday to Friday from 5pm until 9pm.

The โ€˜New Normalโ€™ means that there are lots of changes in how we need to operate, so please spare a moment to read the following: 

๐Ÿ’ฏ Top of our list to fully reopen is the safety of our staff and customers, so we have taken the decision not to rush into opening our pub until we are sure that everything is right here and that we can implement all of the necessary โ€˜New Normalโ€™ regulations & guidelines. 2 metre Social distancing must be maintained at all times!

๐ŸŒŸ Our beautiful new garden is open for you to enjoy your takeaway food from ROOTZ from 12pm on Saturday.

โ—๏ธWeve given the inside of The Bot a face lift, everything has been deep cleaned, we have removed some tables to ensure that social distancing measures can be maintained. - We think that you will find a very comfortable environment to enjoy a meal and drink.

โ—๏ธTrack & Trace - We are now required by law to keep a register of everyone who visits us for a period of 21 days, when all data will be deleted. In order that we can do this efficiently, we have developed a very simple QR activated app to log your details before entering the premises - All you need to do is scan the code with your phone, click the link thatโ€™s displayed and fill in your details - Guidance notice are in place to guide you in registering and our staff will obviously also be happy to help.

โ—๏ธWeโ€™ve established a one way route throughout the pub, including in our garden with clear notices for you to follow and enable safe distancing at every stage of your visit.

โ—๏ธWe can no longer allow you to stand at our bar, so we will be operating strict table service only, with orders for all food and drink, including payments being managed by our new Apps - Our staff will be on hand to guide you through ordering.

โ—๏ธHand sanitiser stations are positioned through the inside & outside of the pub. Please wash your hands regularly and sanitise upon arrival and at departure.

๐Ÿ•๐Ÿ”๐Ÿฅ™๐ŸŸ ROOTZ - Pizzas, Burgers & Kebabs - Our Takeaways are also available to eat in from 12pm when we are open. We provide a delivery service from 5pm Wednesday to Sunday, with Free Deliveries available up to 4.5 miles and a small charge for deliveries up to 10 miles.

๐Ÿฅ˜ We have reduced our menu in line with the guidelines to help the kitchen cope, but the good news is we have some great new dishes, as well as some old favourites, which we know you will enjoy.

๐Ÿ˜‹ We have new weekday offers coming up including a NEW Steak & Grill offer. Keep an eye on our social media pages for all of the latest news, discounts & offers.

Many thanks for taking the time to read our update,

Please be patient with us while we move to the New Normal, we will do our best to ensure that your visit is better than it has ever been, but it might not be instantly perfect.

We are looking forward to welcoming you all back to The Bot in the next few weeks....

See you very soon....Image attachment

Looking forward to seeing you all with a nice pint in the hand ๐Ÿป๐Ÿป๐Ÿป๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

Was so excited about picking up a takeaway on our way back to Weymouth from Southampton last night.. oh the disappointment ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ

Seems odd opening from 2pm on Sundays. If you made it from 12pm then you'd get the whole Sunday lunch market.

Is it nearly time.... ๐Ÿฅ๐Ÿฅ๐Ÿฅ๐Ÿบ๐Ÿท๐Ÿฅ‚๐Ÿ‘ ๐Ÿงจ ๐ŸŽ‰

Many of you will be aware that we have been running an essential grocery delivery/collection store service to local villages since the COVID-19 shutdown, which started with takeaway roast dinners on Motherโ€™s Day.
As of Friday this week, sadly our groceries supplies service will come to an end, as we need to focus our efforts on readying the pub to reopen just as soon as we are allowed to.

โ€˜ROOTZ - Pizza & Grill Shakโ€™ - Our hot food takeaway/delivery business will continue, with longer opening hours, including Sundays starting at 2pm from this weekend for Fathers Day and you will be pleased to know that itโ€™s here to stay permanently ๐ŸŽ‰ ๐Ÿ•๐Ÿ”๐ŸŸ๐Ÿฅ™

We would like to thank everybody who has supported us in these trying times, customers, friends and volunteer drivers alike.
Our time is now focused on being ready to reopen, initially with our garden for food & drinks and we are really looking forward to welcoming you all back to The Bot again very soon.

It would be nice to of received the money owed for all the hard work put in 7 weeks furlough received in 13 weeks for. £5 phour top up on top of that illegal furlough payment but hey ho sure a man with 3 kids can survive getting ripped off on the promise of making this worth my while x

Thanks for dropping a leaflet through our door in Creekmoor but it might be an idea to ask the lady doing this to not lick her thumb, fold the leaflet thereby covering it in her saliva before putting it through the letterbox. Unread Leaflet destroyed and letterbox disinfected. ๐Ÿ‘Ž
