|Time Called On Putney Pub|
The Prince of Wales not returning after crisis is over
The Press Association have reported that The Restaurant Group (TRG) is closing all its pubs permanently as a result of the coronavirus outbreak including the one it owns in Putney.
The Prince of Wales on the Upper Richmond Road is part of the Food and Fuel group along with ten others in the London area.
TRG announced at the same time that their Chiquito restaurant chain was going into administration with most of their branches closing. Overall 1,500 jobs will be lost in the group because of the closures.
A spokesperson for The Restaurant Group said that “Covid-19 has had an immediate and significant impact on trading across the group”.
The group had already issued a profits warning earlier in the month due to falling sales and announced plans to cut costs, capital expenditure and talk to landlords about rent reductions.
