Bassett’s (Poolesville) Announces it Will Be Closing Permanently

Bassett’s Fine Food & Spirits in Poolesville (19950 Fisher Ave) announced on its social media that the restaurant will be closing permanently.

The restaurant will cease operations on December 31. The full statement can be seen below:

“To our friends and our community –

Over the past 3 years, we have had the utmost honor of becoming part of the Poolesville community. We have done our best to support this town, and in return we have become part of the incredible family that Poolesville is so well known for.

Like so many other restaurants struggling to survive during the COVID era, we too took a hard hit in more ways than one. We have done our absolute best to keep our doors open, we have fought against all odds, including the closing of Whites Ferry, and we have appreciated all of the support of the community we have gotten. But it is with the heaviest hearts we must announce that as of December 31, 2021, Bassett’s will no longer be in business.

This has not been an easy decision to come to by any means, and we are so sorry for this devastating loss to the community. We truly cannot thank this town enough for the support over the years, and we hope that as time goes on, we will find ourselves living in a time where restaurants like Bassetts have a shot at survival. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you, to each and every one of you, for being our friends, our family, our support system, and more. There truly are no words to encompass the sadness we feel making this decision. Thank you, Poolesville. We truly love you all.”
