D&D London temporarily closes of all UK restaurants

Following Boris Johnson’s statement advising Londoners not to visit pubs, bars and restaurants in order to reduce the spread of Coronavirus, D&D London announced the temporary closure of all its UK restaurants.

Des Gunewardena, Chairman and CEO of D&D London, commented, “We fully understand the need to play our part in defeating the spread of Coronavirus and the safety of our staff and customers is of course of paramount importance.

'And we have had to similarly close our restaurants in New York and Paris. Nevertheless it is a desperately sad day for us and for other UK restaurants who also face closure.

'Our number one priority now is to work closely with government bodies to ensure that the welfare of our staff and their families is managed through this period of uncertainty. We hope the government steps up to the challenge.”
