It has since undergone a deep clean on Tuesday. 

The bar announced the cases to punters on Facebook encouraging everyone who visited the venue on Sunday to get tested.

A spokeswoman said: "We have a QR code system in place and sign in book for those not able to use the QR code.  

"We are aware track and trace should contact people but are aware this can take a few days and have already contacted our regulars directly to make them aware.

"I would just like to also add that environment health was in last week seen all of our systems in place for track and trace, seating systems and also our one-way system to enter and exit the pub.

"We also were given a number of capacity which we are sticking to so it is a booking system that is in place to enter pub to ensure we do not exceed numbers. Environment health was pleased with our safety measures put in place."

A reopening date was not confirmed but the bar added they were looking forward to having punters back in. 

"We will be pleased to reopen soon and welcome back our regulars and customers.

"All regulars and customers are reminded bookings are required and the pub is all seated with table service in place."
