Debbie and Simon made the decision not to re-open their tiny Micropub, and set about thinking of ways to deliver the FUN back in to hospitality.
They were once described as delivering service like "custodians of a louche house party" by GQ Magazine, no less, so they weren't about to give in!
Rutherfords 2 has been likened to a Speakeasy and we reckon that's just perfect! Only now, we don't have to talk in hushed voices...!
hOW DO WE DELIVER A SAFE SERVICE?
Let's face it... it's time to do things differently now. But Rutherfords 2 don't do 'normal'.... even the so-called 'new normal' needed an upgrade...
It was clearly important that we were able to keep people safe, but we wanted to do that in a 'stealthy' way... Surely there was a way to ensure everyone was having a great time AND staying safe at the same time... Rutherfords 2 had the answer! The second of our ventures, and all at a safe 2 metre distance.
Our tables and chairs are placed at the correct (and current) intervals around our Speakeasy, and all drinks are served in quality, biodegradable 'plastic' glasses.
The huge serving area with beautiful copper bar is a safe distance from you and your guests, so all you need to do is relax and enjoy, knowing that Rutherfords 2 are 'protecting and serving' you!
How many can
From 19th July, you can go ahead and book your wedding reception or wake, inviting up to 200 guests, and invite us along to provide the alcohol. People working at your wedding (such as us and your caterers) don't count towards the 200.
We can serve you outside up until midnight - and you can DANCE! In fact... we insist you do!
The rules are due to be relaxed again in August. We will update the page as soon as we have the latest information.
We will keep this page updated with the absolute latest relevant Scottish Government guidance on numbers and any other important information to keep everyone safe and legal. Just check here to see how many guests you can invite, then get ready to party! Please contact us to enquire about other gatherings.
