To comply with Government regulations, STACK SEABURN may only host groups of more than 6 if all group members are from the same household (or are members of two linked households).
This must be confirmed on bookings or walk-ups. We reserve the right to ask group leaders and members for proof of address.
It is not against the law to meet with people you do not live with in an outdoor setting up to a max of 6 people.
However, we respectfully remind our visitors that current government guidance applying in the North East of England is that people should not meet with people they do not live with or outside their support bubble in any outdoor public venues, which includes STACK SEABURN.
To comply with Government regulations, any indoor seating areas may only host groups of 2 or more if all group members are from the same household (or are members of two linked households).

YES - to comply with Government regulations, we can only host groups of more than 6 if all group members are from the same household/support bubble.
This must be confirmed on booking and on entry, and we reserve the right to ask for proof of identity and/or address.
We apply a common-sense approach to checking that these groups consist of the same household/support bubble. We appreciate that not everyone carries documents with their home addresses on - we may ask questions that we consider to be reasonably appropriate and would encourage group leaders to have identity documents or other proofs of address available if they are needed.
NO - downloading and using the NHS Test & Trace App is voluntary. We display the NHS Test & Trace QR code at the entrances to STACK and we would ask visitors who have access to a smart phone to scan and log their details to support the Government’s test & trace initiative.
YES – current regulations state that we must still record the relevant information for the head of each group visiting. This information will be taken manually upon entering STACK if it hasn’t already been provided at the time of booking.
YES - we are required by Government regulations to refuse entry to any visitor who does not provide details for Test & Trace, either via the NHS Track & Trace App or manually.
NO – all data collected is for the purpose of Test & Trace only. Records will be stored securely for 21 days and will then be destroyed.
Masks are not compulsory outdoors but must be worn indoors unless you have a reasonable excuse under the Face Covering Regulations not to wear a face covering.
Although STACK is an outdoor premise there are indoor areas including toilets where you will be required to abide by the indoor regulations on wearing masks.
Masks may be removed when seated at tables for the purposes of eating or drinking.
NO - we are obliged to take all reasonable measures to ensure no person joins another group.
NO - current regulations require STACK to take all reasonable measures to stop singing and dancing on the premises by customers.
