Walking from Leicester Square into the Charing Cross road and you can’t fail to notice the boarded-up pub of the Garrick Arms. The Greene King pub has been closed throughout the coronavirus pandemic, not managing to reopen during the Help to Eat scheme over the summer which tried to help the hospitality industry with discounts to attract customers in. The West End has been disproportionately affected by restrictions during the pandemic. The main customer base of office workers and tourists have stayed away from the area. The boards put up here appear rather new – in fact they have to be regularly renewed due to graffiti.
