Just Gentz The barbers will be re-opening from the 4th of July 🎉🙌🎊
But we do have a few changes to the normal running of the salon.

Firstly it will be appointment only for the time being.
As the threat of Covid has not gone, we would like to limit the amount of people in the salon and respect the distancing rules, therefore no walk-ins and no waiting.
 Only 2 barbers will be working at any time.
Again to keep everyone at a safe distance from one another.
Temporary change to opening times,:
Monday 8am – 9pm
Tuesday 8am – 9pm
Wednesday 9am – 7pm
Thursday 8am – 9pm
Friday 8am – 9 pm
Saturday 8am – 9pm
 All barbers will be wearing full PPE for every client and will be cleaning and disinfecting all equipment after every client.
Clients will be asked to wear a face covering to their appointment and to wait at the door until invited in.
All clients to come to their appointment alone; children with an appointment may be accompanied by 1 adult.
Hand sanitiser will be offered to anyone entering the salon
 Certain services will be temporarily stopped to abide by new rules

Surfin’ Frog


We’re not “going back to normal”, we’re going forward! The bistro is re-opening on 4th July for lunch & evening meals.  But things will be a little different….


To comply with Covid 19 regulations and to minimise risk to staff and customers we will have fewer staff than before, and things will take a little longer. Also, we’re working on a reservation only basis  – advance bookings are now being taken, but don’t wait too long, we’re already filling up on some dates.


We will be offering an exciting and interesting new bistro menu with the focus on quality, freshness, and local seasonal produce.


Menus will be on the blackboard – there will be no individual printed menus. To keep things interesting, we’ll create new dishes for you to try every week or two, with a choice of starters, main courses and desserts – all freshly prepared with our customary care and love of cooking.


Book a table and it’s yours for the evening – think of it as a “slow food” experience rather than fast food – let’s be honest, being allowed out after the last few months should mean we can all work to a less frantic pace of life.  We’d like that and we hope you’ll join us and appreciate our new vision.


We’ve freshly decorated the bistro inside and out, and removed some tables to create a little more space – we don’t care for the term “social distancing” – at The Frog we believe in “social inclusion”, and for now at least, with physical distancing until we’re all on the other side of the pandemic.
