    A food chain which operates across the West, South and South West is preparing to reopen while having to deal with different levels of Covid-security at different branches.

    The Hubbox chain has three of its nine branches in Cornwall; and others in Bristol, Devon, Hampshire and Somerset.

    This means it will be operating under tier one restrictions in Cornwall, and mostly tier two elsewhere when the current England lockdown finishes on Wednesday.

    However, its Bristol branch will be in tier three.

    Under the new restrictions, tier 1 restaurants can open, but venues must be table service only, with last orders at 10pm.

    Tier 2 sees pubs and restaurants only serve alcohol if it is with a "substantial meal".

    Tier 3 see all hospitality businesses closing apart from offering takeaway and delivery options.

    Operations Director Sameer Shetty said both customers and staff needed to be confident they could return.

    Quote Message: When the teams come back, they'll have questions, so we're getting ready for what we can and can't do. As long as people stick to the rules, we are happy with what we do in-house in terms of keeping people safe." from Sameer Shetty Operations Director, Hubbox
