March 2020

To Our Customers and Suppliers

It is with regret that we have taken the decision to temporarily close our restaurant and rooms as of 18th March until at least the end of May due to the current COVID-19 (Coronavirus) situation. Government has advised against social interaction, which had an immediate effect on our bookings and we simply cannot sustain staying open over the coming weeks.

We will continue to monitor the situation and will update our web site as and when. We will keep you updated and look forward to your support when we come through this and can re-open.

Sending our best wishes to you all,
James, Gennaro, Amina and the Origins Team
