After sanitizing your hands perhaps some paper towels to dry them. Also I didn't see any track and trace system or made knowledgeable of one. This review is not meant as a criticism as we intend to return to The Island Pool.

Carvery was excellent served behind screen and spaced out tables felt safe. Just one thing when staff clear tables if customers are still seated a mask should be worn.

Obviously, due to Covid-19 our experience was a little different, but the pub was operating in a safe manner, with spaced out tables, table service and the carvery compiled for you, from behind a glass screen, and handed to you at the end, which was OK given the current circumstances, but I usually like to pick my own choice of items. The price of the carver has gone up some, since our last visit last year, so isn't as competitive as it used to be, but the food was delicious as always. Will no doubt visit again when they re-open.
