Two Pubs Close for Serious RefurbishemntNovember we see two busy local pubs closing for major refurbishment, both expected to be closed for a number of weeks.
The White Lion in Sawbridgwith and the Half Moon in Bishops Stortford are both having the decorators in for a serious refurbishment. Bit of a pain losing the facility of the pubs for a few weeks, but it is great to see pub owners investing in the propoerties. We look forward to the re-openeings and hope they both continue in their previous success.
Bishops Stortford Club ClosesSeptember 21 saw the offical closure of the Bishiops Stortford Royal British Legion Club. Popular, and profitable, it was closed due to the lease running out, and the Freeholders wishing to reaslise the value of the buildng through development.
This also means the end of the succesful CAMRA beer festival held each July in the grounds of the club. A new venue may be found for the Bishops Stortford Beer Festival - maybe not - more news on this to follow.
