The premises was subject to inspection under both food, and health and safety legislation, initiated as a result of a customer complaint, and a number of potential breaches were evidenced. Similarly the accommodation within the premises had been subject to action by the Council's Housing Service.
Having made the Area Manager with Punch Taverns aware of our concerns, he elected to visit the premises. Having seen the conditions for himself, the premises was subject to voluntary closure on 14th February with a view to a major refurbishment being undertaken. To date the business has remained closed.
Enquirers regarding the future of the business can be directed to the Press Office of Punch Taverns on 01283 523 551.
