A third incident at the restaurant was then reported in which an offender gained access between 2:30am and 2:40am on July 6, where £300 worth of alcohol and a £50 coat were taken.
All three incidents were reported to police who are treating them as linked and an investigation is underway.
As part of their ongoing enquiries, police have issued an appeal to the public asking for their assistance.
