Ramsbottom has lost another hospitality venue following the closure of a bar.

The Ram Bar on Bridge Street has closed its doors after more than five years of being open.

The bar opened in February 2018 on the site where Ramsbottom Flooring was situated, and served a range of world and craft beers as well as coffee and sandwiches.

The bar prided itself on offering affordable but high quality products.

But high running costs and inconsistent sales have forced the bar to close, adding its name to the growing list of bars that have recently disappeared from Ramsbottom’s high street.

Recent losses to the town include The Ramsbottom Social, Irwell Works Brewery, The Chocolate Café and Grape to Grain.

On social media, the bar said: “After five amazing years we have closed our doors for the last time.

“The usual combination of rising running costs and inconsistent sales in a faltering Rammy market means we will not be keeping our doors open.

“This decision is not one we wanted to make but we have no choice, it no longer makes sense to continue to trade.

“Over the years we have had an amazing collection of people who have worked for us, some awesome regulars and some great times.

"Thanks to all our customers.

“So long Ram Bar.”
