Gastro pub Woodland Creatures, on Leith Walk, confirmed the temporary closure to carry out a deep clean, and give its own staff time to get their own test results.
The bar announced the closure on its Facebook page, stressing it was a purely precautionary step.
It said: “Unfortunately a guest who visited last Thursday (June 17) has informed us that they have tested positive for COVID-19 a week after their visit.
“All staff who were on shift at the time thankfully remain symptom free and have already had a negative result from a lateral flow test.
“However, as a precaution we have chosen to close until all staff have had the results of a PCR test and we’ve had time to deep clean the venue.”The venue added: “We can only apologise for any inconvenience caused and we will be in touch with all affected bookings.
