A 600-year-old pub has had to close for a week because a number of its team are having to self-isolate.

The Bell Inn at Walberswick issued a message to its customers saying they were "really sorry" for any disruption this may cause, but they don’t have enough people to run the pub "to our usual great standards" over the next few days. 

Yesterday's  message said: "We’ve taken the unfortunate decision to temporarily close The Bell, reopening on Saturday 26th June, because a number of our team have been contacted by NHS Test & Trace and told to self-isolate.

"These teammates are all fine and probably already bored and frustrated with having to stay at home."

The pub reassured customers that this doesn't affect people who have visited over the past few days.
