Town centre pub to shut on New Year’s Day

NEW Year’s Eve will spell last orders for one Weston pub, which will close the following day.

The Imperial in South Parade was bought by Butcombe Brewery in March, but just nine months later the firm has decided to close it.

An event tonight will bring the curtain down on the pub’s current incarnation.

Butcombe Brewery did not comment on the closure this week, but staff at the venue told the Mercury that they would lose their jobs tomorrow

It had previously been owned by brothers Chris and Mike Sanders who relaunched it as The Imperial Brasserie in 2010.
