Following some positive tests for Covid-19, a Chester restaurant and bar have temporarily closed.
The Townhouse in Chester’s historic city centre features a restaurant and bar called The Secret Garden, 20 comfortable rooms, and two “group” apartments.
In addition to offering breakfast, afternoon tea, and dinner (Thu-Sun), the venue also caters to family functions, baby showers, hen parties, and birthdays.
On Twitter, the Townhouse Secret Garden expressed its regret about temporarily closing. In a statement, a spokesperson said:
A growing number of pubs and restaurants in the United Kingdom have closed after staff members were found to have Covid-19.
This is a practice that is seen as responsible by several bars and restaurants. It seems that strict safety protocols will never change in the current climate since many have always adhered to them.
The Secret Garden in Townhouse has temporarily closed because of precautions and government guidelines and hopes to reopen soon. During the closure of the business, owners say they will compensate employees so they can quarantine and obtain additional tests.
