Sounds as if the bells are doomed. I cant think of a time when you 
could ring when it wouldnt be in the way of restaurant staff even if 
it wasnt open. If it is open during the day and evening, the chances 
are that staff would be in in the morning preparing things and it 
could be open 7 days as many restaurants are.

Maybe you should block up the louvres and ring tham after midnight.

Thanks goodness I have rung my peal there.
