One of Old Town’s most popular restaurants, Helen Browning’s Chop House, has announced it is to close.
A post on the restaurant’s website said that the pandemic had prompted the decision.
“We’ve decided we can’t run in anything like a fun way with social distancing. “You’ll have to haul yourselves over to Bishopstone to sample our generous and usually lovely organic food and wine, hopefully from July 4.
“When lots of landlords have been receiving justifiable stick for their greedy approach during Covid, both Arkell’s and Guy Foster have behaved impeccably and generously.”
