We’re reopening on Saturday 4th July!

After three long months lost at sea, The Working Boat will be reopening from 4th July.

Our harbourside pub will introduce the town’s biggest covered outdoor licensed space, thanks to a large-scale marquee on its private quay.

The pub’s “mar-quay on the sea” will be in-situ throughout the summer months, meaning al fresco dining on the quay whatever the weather.

The Greenbank gardens will also have plenty of picnic benches, spaced safely apart to ensure social distancing, for open air drinks, Working Boat classics and pizzas served straight from the oven.


(PLEASE NOTE, EVENING SERVICE ON 4TH JULY IS NOW FULLY BOOKED.) The Working Boat will open with the mar-quay on the evening of Saturday 4th July for dinner service, from 5.30pm until 7.30pm, with a maximum of six people per booking. The pub’s horsebox bar will be open for brews throughout the day from midday until late.

With outside public conveniences, outside bar and full table service, you can be sure all customers will be able to maintain recommended safe distancing, all served with a side of fresh sea air.

The Working Boat’s famous Sunday roasts will return every Sunday from 5th July, from midday until they’re finished. And the much-loved Sunday night pub quiz will recommence at 7.30pm. As ever, the quizzes are free to enter, but optional donations will be going to Hospitality Action. This worthy charity is helping our embattled colleagues across the country.

From Monday 6th July, the pub mar-quay will be open every day for lunch and dinner – inside too if permitted – as well as drinks from midday until late.


Managing Director, Ben Young, said: “Our safe haven awaits you. Returning from 4th July with fresh sea air, safe distancing, and our traditional pub atmosphere fully intact, we’re ready to welcome you back on board.”

As the marquee has a strictly limited maximum capacity to ensure the safety of both visitors and staff, and in line with UK government guidelines, bookings are strongly recommended. For bookings, please call The Greenbank on 01326 312440. At this point in time, the pub will only be accepting card and contact-less payments. We can’t wait to see you all again!
