COVID 19 - We’ve been working hard behind the scenes to make sure your pub is as safe as possible for you and our teams.

The risks associated with coronavirus have led to some adjustments in how we will operate in future, in order to prioritise your safety while visiting. Our adjustments follow extensive consultation with employees and incorporate advice from government, health & safety advisers and UK Hospitality.

Risk assessments have been completed and full training provided for all staff. 

I hope the approach we have taken gives you confidence to return to visit us and we look forward to seeing you soon.

The Minerva welcomes well behaved children and is dog friendly, however, we do ask that you respect our policies regarding these:

Children’s Policy - Well behaved children are always welcome. Children younger than 16 must always be accompanied by an adult whilst visiting the Minerva. As this is mainly a drinking establishment, children are not allowed to remain on the premises after 8pm, unless they are part of a private party in the separate function room.

Policy on Dogs - Dogs are welcome at the Minerva if they are kept on a leash and are always with their owners/guardians. They are not allowed on the furniture, regardless of their size.  We kindly ask that you clean up after your dogs when they are outside on the Minerva’s property.

By abiding by the above policies will ensure a safe environment for everyone. We appreciate your co-operation.


The name Minerva derived from the latin men’s meaning ‘intellect’, but some say it s more likely to be of Etruscan origin. Minerva was the goddess of wisdom and war – equivalent to that of the Greek goddess ‘Athena’

So, come and put the world to rights over your favourite tipple in a warm and welcoming environment.
