The nominated liquidator, Michael Royce, of M.R. Insolvency, based in Leeds is currently dealing with matters.

Mr Royce said: “Unfortunately, due to the ever-increasing costs of overheads and staffing costs that have impacted the business the director has taken the decision to cease trading and place the company into liquidation.

“Whilst this company will be trading, the former operators are going to restart their company and continue the running of the pub.

“I’m sure this will be great news for its loyal customers.”

One employee said: ""All I've been told that after Sunday I won't have a job anymore."
