"It has been incredibly tough operating under the current climate and unfortunately with being such a young business, I have run out of resources to keep it going.

"I want to take this opportunity to thank everyone who passed through the doors, our regulars, friends and family who made this possible.

"It has been a year to remember.

"Our last night open as normal will be Friday, January 27.

"If you would like to enjoy the last drinks served across the bar we will be doing any cocktail on the menu for £6.50 with the £5 menu still in place."
