The Mill Inn, Aberystwyth, has been permitted to reopen after improving its procedures and facilities in response to a closure notice issued last month.

The public house had been required to close by Public Protection Officers from Ceredigion County Council on 22 September after alleged breaches of The Health Protection (Coronavirus Restrictions) (No.2) (Wales) Regulations 2020.

Since the closure notice has been issued, the proprietors of the public house have been working with Public Protection Officers to make improvements including limits on the venue’s capacity, provision of socially distanced seating and improved collection of contact tracing details.  The premises has been permitted to reopen as Officers are now satisfied that sufficient improvements have been made to ensure that the premises and staff comply with the coronavirus restrictions.
