North Bar in Harrogate are hosting a ‘last pint’ for staff and a few of their closest regulars before they are forced to close for a second national lockdown.
Today (Wednesday 4th November) is the last day that non-essential shops, bars and restaurants can remain open.
And North Bar are getting together as a team, with a few of their more regular customers, for a last meal and a last pint before cleaning out the bar.
Deborah, General Manager at North Bar Harrogate, gave us her reaction to the new lockdown rules:
“I’m upset and a bit confused because I really wanted to keep the bar open, either just as a shop or a click-and-collect.
“It’s been a surprise for all of us. We’ve been really strict about all the restrictions, sanitising all the time, face coverings, social distancing to make sure we’re safe.”
