Historic pubs reopens
AN HISTORIC pub feared to have closed for good will reopen today.
The Barge Inn in High Road, Vange, shut mysteriously after a New Year’s Eve party and hasn’t been open since.
Previous landlords Emma and Clive Langley signed up to a 30-year lease back in 2007, but it is unclear why they decided to close the pub which first opened its doors 200 years ago.
Enterprise Inns, which owns the pub, has confirmed new landlords have been appointed. No further details have been released.
An a-board was put outside the pub in High Road on Tuesday announcing it would open Wednesday lunchtime and would hold a karaoke contest on Saturday night.
