In a post shared on both Facebook and Instagram, the bar's manager wrote: “It's with a heavy heart I have to report this is the final week of the Mash Tun in its current setup.

"We will be closing after the Euro final this Sunday and handing the pub back to Heineken.

"As sad as it is, all good things must come to an end and it's time for someone new to come in and have a go. The pub business has changed beyond all recognition in the last five years and I wish the new incumbents all the best.

"Hopefully the new government will consider throwing the sector a bone.”
