Canalside cafe won’t reopen after lockdown

With news expected today that social distancing is to be adjusted to one metre, one Gloucestershire cafe has still decided to call it a day.

Upper Lock Cafe in Stroud has announced that it won't be reopening its doors.

In a statement on Facebook, the cafe's owner said: "It is with great sadness that I have to tell you, all our lovely customers, that I won't be reopening the Upper Lock Cafe when lockdown restrictions are lifted. We have had an amazing 6 years. I would like to thank our loyal staff, all the artists who have exhibited, and of course a special thanks to all of you, our customers, who have made the cafe such a cheerful place over the years."

Customers and artists alike have responded with sadness at the news, with many sharing fond memories of their time at the cafe and their favourite items from the menu.
