In a statement the business said: “Unfortunately, we were informed this evening that a customer who was in The Smoking Monkey Bar on Saturday night, has since tested positive for Covid-19.

“Our main priority is to protect our staff and customers and therefore, in line with government guidelines, all staff at risk have been asked to self-isolate and undergo testing for Covid-19.

“A deep clean of The Smoking Monkey Bar will be carried out and it will remain closed for food and drinks until Friday.

“We would like to reassure customers that this isolated incident does not affect The Grouse Restaurant & Bar and we will continue to adhere to all government guidelines in place including regular cleaning, strict social distancing and many other measures.
