The owners took to social media to announce the closure.
A Facebook post read: “The closure is due to the developers Midas Land Ltd wanting to demolish the former prestigious Golden Ball and turn it in to a modern Primark-looking building.
“Pathetic behaviour and vile actions took place over 2018, one being the parking tickets and now serving us a notice to demolish the site.
“We would like to Thank You all MASSIVELY for your support over the past 12 years & being the best guests we could ever have asked for…
“We have built such strong relationships with some of you that will continue wherever our next venture may take us!
“Everyone has made us feel very welcome in Broughton like being part of a family over the years and we’ll forever be grateful for that!”
