Italian restaurant Prezzo in Cowgate is closing due to the coronavirus.

The chain said it was temporarily shutting all of its restaurants in order to “protect the health of our teams, our customers and our local communities”.

Executive chairman Karen Jones said: After the Government stated last Monday that people should avoid restaurants, it was always going to be question of when, not if, we would need to close our doors for a time.

“Our Prezzo people will be working in their usual committed fashion to temporarily close our restaurants down in an orderly and planned manner.

“Those same Prezzo people are at the centre of my thinking and our planning. We appreciate the support of all stakeholders. I want us to return stronger than before and with renewed determination to deliver our mission – every customer leaving wanting to return. And return we will.”

Also today, The Crown Inn, at Elton, announced its restaurant and rooms are closing, although the bar will remain open as long as there is footfall.

Owner Marcus Lamb said: “It’s with regret that we’ve had to make the difficult decision to close our restaurant and bedrooms from today. We endeavour to open the bar between 12 noon and 9pm (depending on footfall), unless of course we are told otherwise by the government.”
