David Copperfield at Westwood closure confirmed

David Copperfield has been sold

The David Copperfield Harvester off Westwood is shutting from April 1.

The pub/restaurant, opposite Asda, has been sold although the buyer is yet to be revealed. Customers have been notified of the closure through a sign on the notice board at the venue.

It is hoped staff can be found employment at other Harvester sites.

The David Copperfield was handed a zero star food rating in 2017 but achieved five stars at its last inspection in February 2018.

A Harvester spokesperson said: “We continuously review our estate to ensure that we’re always obtaining the best returns from each of our assets, and driving innovation across our brands, to enable us to continue to deliver shareholder value.

“Following an approach, we have taken the decision to sell the David Copperfield Harvester. The team have been consulted and we hope to redeploy as many employees as possible to other sites we operate nearby.”
