The post said: ‘We have had a case of coronavirus in the pub which means that some of us are in isolation.

‘The pub is now shut but all being well will open again on Saturday.’

The statement added that customers who went to the pub over the weekend do not need to self-isolate, unless they are instructed to do so.
