A FORMER Wetherspoon pub in Bury which shut its doors less than two weeks ago could be reopening very soon according to posters on the premises' windows.

Posters with writing on such as "Guess Who's Back" state that the boozer, formerly known as The Robert Peel pub on Market Place, will be back open in a few days once it has been set up.

It is still unknown who the new operator though.

At the weekend, the lights were on and people were seen moving around inside the pub.

The closure came as a surprise to many customers as there was no announcement before it shut its doors for the final time as a Wetherspoon boozer on Sunday, March 27.

In a statement the following day, Wetherspoon spokesman Eddie Gershon said: “The Robert Peel has now closed.

“On occasion, Wetherspoon does close some of its pubs and this is the case here.

“We fully understand that customers and staff will be disappointed with the decision, and we thank them for their loyalty over the years.

“There will be no staff redundancies as a result of the closure with all staff offered jobs at other Wetherspoon pubs.

“Wetherspoon will continue to operate The Art Picture House pub in Haymarket Street, Bury.”
