Patrick Lannagan said: “Trading will continue while the Administrators assess the financial position of the businesses. Given the popularity of the pubs and hotel, the Joint Administrators are confident of achieving a positive outcome for the sites.

“The teams at each of the pubs and the hotel are very appreciative of the support of our customers at this difficult time. That continued support will give us the best chance of securing a successful outcome and preserving jobs.”

The administrators will be writing to all creditors over the next few days.
