Monty’s has been another casualty of the pandemic after closing its venues in Market Halls and Spitalfields’s Kitchen and struggling to keep afloat relying on sandwich meal kits and wholesale sales. Sadly, the New Yoik-style sarnie maestros have called it a day for good. Known for its famous pastrami, salt beef and bagels.
Back in March 2020, all of London’s bars, restaurants and hospitality venues were ordered to close to the public because under the first lockdown. Some were able to bounce back in summer 2020, only to have to go back into hibernation in the winter as the city locked down again. Some didn’t reopen at all.
The struggle is far from over for London’s restaurants and bars. Their staff are still at risk, and some customers remain cautious about returning to indoor drinking and dining. There’s also a massive shortage of hospitality staff, partly due to Brexit. Sadly, this means there have been further casualties.
Here we bid farewell to the London restaurants and bars that have confirmed they won’t be reopening. So long, and thanks for all the drinks, dishes and great times.
