and live on Freeview channel 276
The pub’s landlords confirmed the closure yesterday (April 3), saying the final pints will be pulled on Easter Sunday (April 17) before it shuts permanently.
The Seven Stars, which is owned by Admiral Taverns, has been listed for sale and the pub group is seeking offers in the region of £150,000.
A spokesman for Admiral Taverns said: "Our focus is always on helping our licensees to run sustainable pub businesses.
"However, after careful consideration we felt in this instance that the Seven Stars did not have a long-term sustainable future and therefore we’ve taken the decision to put the pub up for sale."
It is now under offer, according to Right Move.
Breaking the news to customers on Facebook, the pub’s managers said: “Well after 5 years of being here we are unfortunately saying good bye as Seven Stars is closing.
“So why not come join us on April 17 for our final hurrah at Seven Stars.
“Come say good bye to staff and management. Buffet food, music and karaoke from 7 till late.
“Thank you for the support over the years.”
On February 18, the pub announced it would temporarily close for a few weeks “due to a serious issue”, but no details were given. It reopened on March 8.
The pub dates back to the mid-1800’s and during this period it was sometimes used by the town’s coroner to hold inquests.
