Paul Chesterton, who runs the pub with wife Eleanor, wrote: It has come to our attention that one of our customers has tested positive for COVID-19.
“The customer had no symptoms whilst on the premises but felt it necessary to get tested the following day.
“They have not been on the premises for five days now but as a duty of care to our customers, family and friends we will close the pub for 10 days for a deep clean.
“Following government guidelines it states we do not have to close, but we feel compelled to do so to safeguard our customers.
“Both myself and my wife have been tested and we are both negative. Our staff have been informed and have all been tested.”
The pub announced it plans to reopen on Friday, August 14 at 4pm.
