Club Statement

As a result of the easing of lockdown restrictions, and the club forming a strong working relationship with RCTCBC Licencing Department, ARFC has been granted a licence to open and serve alcohol. It comes with strict conditions and local authority protocols that must be adhered to. The health and safety of our staff and patrons is paramount, so all safety measures and restrictions are in your best interests. The club is fully prepared, and the provisions in place will hopefully gain us support and public confidence.

Our usual opening days and times will prevail but we must close by 10pm. a maximum number of 70 people will be allowed on the the club premises on a first come first seated arrangement. Members will be allocated a table on the terrace for a 2 hour time slot for themselves and their guests, and must be seated.
