The Mill at Charnock Farm said it "will be closed for the foreseeable future" after Tier 3 restrictions made it too difficult for the pub to operate.

Other businesses at the Charnock Farm venue in Wigan Road remain open, including Lakeside Coffee House, the motel, Lavender Barn beauty salon and Tracey's Hair Studio.

The venue's events team is also still working and wedding bookings are still being taken.
