In a statement on Facebook at the time the pub’s former operators said: “There was a time in the distant past, when the sharing of this post seemed like a lifetime away and yet here we are in the blink of an eye 20 years later and the moment is finally upon us.

“With mixed emotions we are announcing the closure of the Blue Anchor Buffet and Sunday Carvery on Sunday the 19th November.

“It’s the end of our journey, and the end of an era. We have completed our lease from start to finish and the time is right for us to step aside. Renewal isn’t a viable option for us and the pub will take its next chapter under new ownership, but absolutely with our full support and best wishes.”
