MEATliquor is to permanently close its restaurant in London's King's Cross this week as England enters its second country-wide lockdown.

The group, which operates several restaurants across central London as well as ones in Croydon, Brighton and Leeds, says the King's Cross site will run its final service until 10pm on Wednesday (4 November), before closing the doors for good.

Announcing the news to customers on Twitter, MEATliqour said: "Unfortunately, [Wednesday] will be our final service at King's Cross and we will not be reopening the site after lockdown 2.0.

“Your loyalty and custom has meant the world to us and we hope to see as many of you as possible for a farewell Dead Hippie before we close our doors for the last time.

“We’ve loved every minute of the last three (and a bit) years and fully intent to make the most of our last few days of trade. Let’s raise our Grogs and give MEATliquor Kings Cross the send-off she deserves.

“This may be it for St. Chad’s Place but there’s new things on the horizon so keep your eyes peeled.”

The closure will leave MEATliquor with 10 sites in total.

The group was one of the first to relaunch its delivery operations during the first lockdown, reopening its East Dulwich site in April, followed by its Battersea and Islington sites in early May.

It subsequently reopened its entire estate for dine-in customers when lockdown restrictions were lifted in July.

On Thursday, hospitality venues across England will close for at least a month​ under what Prime Minister Boris Johnson described as ‘tough new national measures’ that will effectively see the country plunged back into lockdown.

Under the restrictions, all restaurants, pubs and bars in England must close, although takeaways and deliveries will be permitted
