A popular Wraxall pub announced its sudden closure last week.

The Old Barn, in Bristol Road, had been a prominent watering hole for almost 20 years.

It was even included in the worth a visit section of the Good Pub Guide 2018, which offers detailed information on the UK’s best pubs based on a variety of different factors.

An announcement was made by the owners on the pub’s Facebook page confirming that the countryside public house has shut its doors for good.

They said: “The Old Barn is now closed for business.

“Thank you all for your kind patronage over the years – the site will be placed on the market shortly.”
