The statement reads, in part:

“While the last few months since opening have felt like a homecoming, we haven’t been able to dig ourselves out of the hole that the pandemic created. When looking ahead to the future, we may not ever get back to where we were pre-pandemic.
With the heaviest of hearts we announce the closing of our pub. We will remain open until end of service on October 3rd.”
