To our dear patrons, we have this week monitored daily the balance we must strike between serving our communities and following Government advice about the risks of doing so.

We have with heavy heart decided that the scales have now tipped towards the latter and we shall therefore close with immediate effect all our pubs, excepting for the moment those few that provide some respite to our heroic NHS staff.

These are dark days, but the storm will most certainly pass and when it does, we very much look forward to welcoming you back to your Gremio De Brixton.

Stay safe, keep your chin up, and good luck to us all.
