A popular bar in Arnold has closed down suddenly just a year after reopening.
The Townhouse Bar and Kitchen, which is situated at 1-5 High Street, now has a ‘Forfeiture’ sign on the door.
Property owner Nick Howdle posted on social media yesterday to confirm that his company had ordered bailiffs to repossess the property.
The former tenants must now collect their possessions before they are sold by the landlord.
He wrote: “The facts are quite simply my company repossessed the property today (January 2) with bailiffs due to the tenant owing severe rent arrears.
“The Townhouse will be reopening within the next three months with new operators and it will undergo a big refurbishment to give Arnold a quality venue it deserves.”
The ‘Forfeiture’ sign on the door, which was issued yesterday (January 2), reads: “‘Under the terms of the demised lease, we as authorised agents on behalf of the landlord have this day re-entered the land known as the The Townhouse Bar and Kitchen.
“Any attempt by you or your agents to enter the property will result in criminal or civil proceedings being taken against you”
The Townhouse Bar and Kitchen reopened back in January 2018 after Mr Howdle, who had previously run the venue, sold the leasehold so he could concentrate on a new business venture.
