A pub has now closed its doors after bosses have upped sticks and moved to a new site in Leigh.

The Town House Bar & Kitchen, on Queens Road, Southend, will not be re-opening, after the pub's lease expired.

The team have now instead moved to The Inn at Belfairs, in Leigh, and are already taking new bookings, boasting a large beer garden and beautiful restaurant at their new home.

It is believed the Town House is set for refurbishment, according to owners Star Pubs & Bars.
