The King Arthurs Arms in Cornwall has been forced to temporarily close after visitors from tier four and tier three areas abused staff for denying them entry.
The owners of The King Arthur’s Arms Inn in Tintagel have hit out at those breaking Government restrictions, saying an ‘army of silent coronavirus carriers’ could ‘put our village at peril’.
People in Cornwall are currently living under tier two restrictions, meaning pubs can stay open if they are able to serve punters a ‘substantial meal’ with alcoholic drinks. The county of Cornwall moved up from tier one on Boxing Day.
A statement from The King Arthur’s Arms Inn said: ‘We are now closed for the near future but we will be keeping this action under review.
‘This decision is due in a large part due to some visitors from tiers 3 and 4 postcodes failing to adhere to the stay at home guidance and are when they are denied entry, actively making life unpleasant for our staff who have been diligently maintaining our strict Covid-19 precautions.’ Pub bosses added: ’To those who have ignored the Government rules/advice and have actually found accommodation in our area, we can but hope that you are not part of the army of silent coronavirus carriers that do not have the symptoms so by your very presence put our village at peril.’
Cornish folk are currently very annoyed by the travelers, Mick Horswill a local businessman in Tintagel was one of many who took to Twitter to share his outrage as he tweeted”
“Stay bloody away – Cornwall is not a refuge for people in higher Tiers, there is a reason why we are in Tier 2, unlike the rest of the country, the residents of Cornwall can behave”
