Awardwinning restaurant falls victim to Covid lockdown


"Like so many hospitality businesses, the forced closure triggered by the pandemic has been absolutely devastating to the General Tarleton"
joint liquidator Richard Kenworthy



Joint liquidators Julian Pitts and Richard Kenworthy of Begbies Traynor were appointed on 30th

September 2020.

 

“Like so many hospitality businesses, the forced closure triggered by the pandemic has been absolutely devastating to the General Tarleton; and its owners, including chef John Topham, had no choice but to put the business into liquidation,” said joint liquidator Richard Kenworthy.

 

“With more months of uncertainty ahead and the likelihood of continued restrictions on the operation of hospitality businesses, it’s closure is an unfortunate cost of the health measures implemented to help combat the global pandemic. The directors really had no way to save the business and the jobs it supported; it is sad to see the end of such a popular restaurant and inn,” he added.

 

The business employed 12 staff before its lockdown closure in March 2020, with all staff, unfortunately, losing their jobs in the closure.

 

The assets of the business will be sold by the joint liquidators to realise funds for the benefit of the creditors that include HMRC and trade suppliers. The 18th century coaching inn, from which the business traded, was not owned by the company, but leased.
