Backwards we go - now into Level 2 😞. This means we have to comply with the rules regarding contact tracing and social distancing. We are working closely with our mates from ALT Kitchen and want your experience here to be seamless and as relaxed as possible.

Sanitise: We have hand sanitiser both inside and in our Al Fresco area.

Sign In: We offer our customers the option of signing in using either the Government's app or physically recording your details with pen and paper. Using the app is the preferred method. If you wish to manually sign in, please use hand sanitiser before handling the pen - or better still, bring your own pen with you.
Please note - you need only sign in once no matter wheter you are visiting just The Good Drop or just ALT Kitchen, or both - but please do sign in!

Physical Distancing: All of our seating has been placed so that physical distancing can be maintained. Please don't move the tables and chairs around, but please do use common sense when around other and above all, please be considerate, respectful and patient 😎.

Refills: Please ensure your empty bottles have been thoroughly cleaned before bringing them in to be refilled. This not only reduces the risk of contamination to others, it also means your beer will be at its best when you get it home!!!

Tastings: We can still offer tastings but would ask customers to limit these to 2 each per visit. We have protocols in place for how our staff handle and manage the glassware to ensure your safety.

Contactless payment is the preferred method of payment. We can still accept chip and swipe electronic transactions and cash is still OK, but we will have to take extra precautions to clean our EFTPOS terminal and wash hands after these transactions. Again, please be patient.

The safety and health of our customers and staff is our priority and we ask anyone with symptoms of a cold or flu infection such as cough, blocked or runny nose and fever to please not enter our shop at this time. You can still order online and arrange contactless payment and collection at the door.


Lockdown Survival Kit update - Contactless Click & Collect Ordering is back!!!

We are still accepting Click & Collect orders! These must be picked up between 12PM and 6PM Wednesday to Saturday.

We are working with ALT Kitchen to provide a combined ordering service - stay tuned!
