Earls in Victoria has temporarily closed its doors until further notice due to a “maintenance issue.”
Images captured from outside the restaurant show that part of the ceiling has currently come down and is piled up on some of the tables just inside the windows.
There are also cracks that have formed on the windows as well, however, it doesn’t appear any of them have broken.
The restaurant announced that it would be closed until further notice on its Facebook page as of December 30, 2021.
The popular restaurant is describing these issues as being “unforeseen” and indicates that it was a result of the recent severe weather in Greater Victoria.
At this time, it is unclear whether the ceiling collapsed on its own or the maintenance issue resulted in it needing to be taken down intentionally.
CHEK has reached out to Earls for more information and is awaiting a response.
