A Cheltenham pub has said it will not take advantage of the end of lockdown 2 and reopen on Wednesday.
The Greatfield, in Caernarvon Road, Up Hatherley, said it will stay closed because of the Tier 2 restrictions it would have to follow.
The new measures mean pubs can only open if they can serve a substantial meal with alcohol and orders must stop at 10pm, with venues closing by 11pm.
The rules also mean that households can not mix indoors.
The Greatfield does function as a restaurant, but is also a popular drinking pub for locals.
In a message on Facebook, it said: “It is with great sadness that we would like to announce that we will not be reopening on December 2nd.
“This decision has not been made lightly but we feel it is the best decision for us due to the tier 2 restrictions placed upon us.”
It said it is waiting for a review of tiers on December 16 and hopes it can reopen before Christmas.
Any bookings between these times will be cancelled and deposits returned.
It added: “We thank each and every one of our loyal guests for their patience, understanding and support during this uncertain time
“We look forward to seeing you again as soon as we are able.”
Back in October, it had launched its festive menus and when it reopened after the first lockdown, it sold out of pre-booked tables.
Gloucestershire will go into Tier 2 restrictions on Wednesday when the current lockdown restrictions end.
