Shirley restaurant ordered to close over Covid breaches

Sarah Mason 20th Jan, 2021

A SHIRLEY restaurant has been ordered to close after failing to comply with coronavirus laws.

Shirley Spice restaurant on Stratford Road was told to close by Solihull Council using powers under the Health Protection (Coronavirus, Restrictions) (England) (No. 3) Regulations 2020.

This follows a number of serious breaches of licensing and Covid safety legislation.

The owner had served alcohol to customers waiting for food, despite this being prohibited by law.

The owner also failed to produce the required written Covid safety assessment when requested.

The order will mean the Shirley Spice restaurant will not be allowed to open until the owner can demonstrate to the Council that satisfactory Covid compliant arrangements are in place.

A spokesperson said: “Solihull Council and the local Police take breaches of the COVID law and guidance very seriously.

“We will continue to monitor the situation in the borough and will not hesitate to take any necessary action to maintain public health and ensure the safety of residents.”
