We have now all had a chance to digest yesterday’s update and the latest measures being taken to ensure the wellbeing of the community in the face of the unprecedented challenge which the whole world is facing.
Hospitality is in our DNA, and we want nothing more than to continue welcoming you to The Last, cooking and feeding you, and offering a moment of escape from everything that is going on in the world.
However, the health and wellbeing of our customers, staff and partners has to be our top priority. In a situation where we are all facing considerable uncertainty and concern, and with the necessity to reduce non-essential social contact, we have made the difficult decision to close The Last with immediate effect.
Initially this closure will be until the end of March, at which point we will review the scientific evidence and advice and decide what to do next. The wellbeing of our staff and customers, and our social responsibility, will always be what guides us.
We may be closing our doors for a period, but we will very much strive to keep open the community of friends which is what defines The Last. We will continue to keep you posted via our website and our social media channels.
The challenges we face are the same ones faced by our colleagues throughout the hospitality sector. As a locally-owned, independent restaurant, we, our staff and our local suppliers rely entirely on the support of our loyal customers.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your continued support. Stay safe and take care of each other.
The Last team
