We have had a number of staff members who are close contacts of other cases.

The safety of our staff and customers is of utmost importance to us and for this reason, we have decided to close.

Reservations will be contacted by phone or email. We will keep you updated on the ongoing situation as to when we plan on reopening.

Thank you for your understanding and patience, Thompson’s Team”
