A statement from the owners said it hoped to re-open on Saturday.

It said: “We haven't been contacted by track and trace or given any instructions to close but we just feel for peace of mind to allow everyone a day to self test and for us to deep clean the shop. We are aiming to be open Saturday as normal unless advised otherwise.
