TEMPORARY CLOSURE OF ST MARY’S INN, 22/03/2020
Dear Family and Friends of St. Mary’s Inn,
We are absolutely committed to the well-being, health and safety of our guests and staff.
The COVID-19 virus is rapidly spreading throughout the world and each Government is following their own strategy to minimise the impact on their people.
The UK Government have advised most recently that people should avoid pubs, theatres, clubs, and by implication, restaurants, though businesses are left to make their own operational choices based on their unique circumstances.
This is a rapidly changing situation and in order to ensure we put our guests and staff at the front of our considerations we have made the decision to temporarily close the Inn effective from 19:00hrs, Sunday, 22nd March 2020.
We will keep everyone advised as the situation changes and look forward to welcoming you all back at the earliest possible time and in accordance with future Government and WHO advice.
We wish the people of the village of Stannington, our guests who travel so far to see us, and our loyal staff and your families well through this difficult time.
The St. Mary’s Inn team
