Community Spirit Pours Out of Chip Shop

Restaurant temporarily stops selling beers and wines to help community businesses

Community Spirit Pours Out of Chip Shop

"We really want to support and protect the businesses that have supported us during COVID and Im sure that everyone in the village will benefit from this decision"
Waseem Mir

One of the country’s leading fish and chip restaurants has decided to temporarily stop serving alcohol to their customers in a bid to help their neighbouring pub, shop and social club. 

The award-winning Harbour View Fish and Chip Restaurant and Takeaway in Seaton Sluice has experienced record breaking sales in takeaway fish and chips during the pandemic and now as their restaurant reopens, they want to help redistribute their success to the Seaton Sluice Social Club, local Premier Shop and the Melton Constable pub. 

Manager Waseem Mir explained why he is temporarily stopping the sale of beer, wines and spirits in the restaurant: 

“We have been very lucky while other business in our village have remained closed with catastrophic results. We all need to do our best to support the business in and around the village and by temporarily stopping the sale of alcohol in our restaurant, we encourage people to use other facilities. Of course, we welcome our customers to bring their own drinks in and hope they will use the Premier Shop to purchase them. After their meal, perhaps they could pop into the Melton Constable or Seaton Sluice Social Club to continue their evening.” 

The temporary restriction on alcohol restriction will continue over the busy summer months. 

“I’d like to thank all of our customers for the way they have supported us during lockdown, and I know they will understand the reasons behind the decision we’ve made. We really want to support and protect the businesses that have supported us during COVID and I’m sure that everyone in the village will benefit from this decision,” said Mr Mir.
