Gusto closes West Bridgford venue

Gusto is to close its West Bridgford restaurant, it has announced.

The chain opened the Central Avenue restaurant and bar in 2017, but the Covid-19 pandemic has hit the company hard.

The West Bridgford venue has hosted several events in the past.

A statement from Gusto said: “It’s with a heavy heart that we announce the permanent closure of our restaurant in West Bridgford.

“This is not a decision that we intended to make but sadly we have been left with no choice. Covid-19 has had a significant impact on our business, like many in the industry and we’re terribly sad to be closing our doors.

“We can’t thank you enough for being members of our Gusto family, for choosing us to celebrate birthdays, graduations, anniversaries and so many other special occasions with us, which we hold dear to our hearts.”

The company is also closing its Glasgow, Lytham, Mere Green, Leamington Spa and York venues.
