New Inn pub in Cerne Abbas closes for flood repairs
1:00pm Tuesday 22nd January 2013 in News
A flood-hit village pub has closed its doors so that Palmers Brewery can repair damage caused by months of torrential rain.
The New Inn at Cerne Abbas had to close for a week when it was hit by floods in July 2012. More extensive structural work was programmed for the end of January and all of February. The pub will re-open again in early March.
New Inn Landlord Jeremy Lee said: “Sunday night was our last night for a while, sadly, which means we won’t be open to serve drinks, meals or offer accommodation in any of our rooms until the beginning of March.”
