COVID 19 Update

Hello from all of us here at Greens, we hope you are all safe and well. The government has lifted some of the lockdown restrictions, however, concerns remain locally about the relatively high rate of COVID 19 infections here in Cumbria.  The message from The National Park , Cumbria Tourism and our wonderful Mountain Rescue Teams remains  “Please do not travel here just yet.”

We are left with a decision about whether to open now in some capacity or not.  To weigh up the pressures we feel on us now to get back to work and our responsibilities to our staff, the local community and you our customers.  Our priority throughout this pandemic has been to trust our instincts and do what we think is right.  That’s why we decided to close the restaurant as soon as the general public were advised to avoid them and not wait until the government decided to order all restaurants to close.  It’s also why we have been topping up the wages of all our staff on furlough so they and their families have not suffered financially from the closure.


We do not feel that it sits right for us to envisage opening in any capacity for the moment.  We need to put the safety of everyone first.


We are busy making plans for what we can do when everyone here feels it is right to reopen and safe for everyone.  It’s been a long eight weeks.  We have missed seeing you all and you are often in our thoughts.  Thanks for all your kind messages and we look forward to welcoming you back when the time is right; sadly it’s not just yet.


Stay safe and best wishes

Rob & Karen
