The bar, restaurant and function facility is renowned for its “exceptionally affordable meals” such as the massive chicken schnitzels and the “Parmageddon” which is a triple stacked traditional parmi with chips and salad and has featured on many a local’s social media account.
The pub’s colourful existence extended beyond the food and fun, with a kitchen fire in 2017 seeing three fire crews race out to contain it and smoke billowing out from the hotel’s top floor.
Facebook followers have already started to reach out to display their gratitude with Carol Franklin saying “Thank you to all concerned, great food, very friendly staff. Most of all the opportunity given to the musos who have performed there. So sad to see a great pub closing”.
Downcast fan Daniel Wright said “Well there goes our feast night” and Sharn Hitchins said “Thank you for supporting live music and providing delicious food, friendly staff, in a wonderful venue.”
