Stage 3 Announcement

Most Ontario Businesses including bars and restaurants are allowed to reopen to Stage 3 on Friday July 17th which means socially distanced indoor dining with both service staff and guests wearing masks during table service. 

At this time our staff are not comfortable with moving service indoors and Christopher and I as owners of The Waring House support their position. We are extremely grateful to the staff who have have been working right through the pandemic. Please continue to watch the website for updates. We do expect indoor dining to start before too long when we are all in the needed comfort zone. In the meantime you can continue to enjoy our lovely outdoor Garden Cafe. Please bring a mask to wear during table service and please "bee" kind to servers who are working under difficult conditions. 

We sincerely appreciate your understanding and assure you of a warm welcome and lots of activities to enjoy the county this summer.

Thank you.
