In what are fast-changing and very challenging circumstances, I have made the difficult decision to close our shop this evening (Sunday) and all-day tomorrow to enable us to put procedures in place so we can offer our fish and chips in a safe and manageable way.
Although the restaurant is now closed, overwhelming takeaway demand has shown us that our fish and chips are a much-loved part of normal life that our customers are reluctant to go without in these difficult times.
However, as the owner of Chez Fred, I cannot operate with a clear conscience until I have established the safest, most manageable way to achieve this and offer a service that protects our staff and customers to the full.
We will be up and running again on Tuesday 24th March, in all likelihood on a home delivery and pre-order only basis. I will be in touch to update all of our customers by Tuesday morning.
Take care and stay safe
