With the government in panic mode they have ‘invented’ an idea to attack the hospitality industry a little more.
People call it a curfew however this is not the word we prefer for such lunacy, our pubs, restaurants and takeaways are very important and need protecting, having them shut could cause many of them to shut down.

Takeaways are also included in this crazy plan so they also have to shut by 10pm, many do shut at this time and only a few that we know operate outside these hours, however they can still operate a delivery service.
