The historic pub located in the Northwich countryside is one of the oldest pubs in the country, a privately owned public house since 1993, has officially said goodbye to its customers for good.
Sharing the news on social media, a spokesman said:
The pub has been met with a flood of support from disappointed customers on The Holly Bush Inn Facebook page. Sharing sentiments on social media, customers responded with overwhelming statements:
During the pandemic, numerous private ventures have either quickly turned to endure or battled to stay afloat with the hospitality sector being one of the hardest-hit sectors.
Many are sad to see the Grade II listing on the barn and pub go, and the reasons behind the decision to cease trading are not yet known.
