Locals fear that the once popular Southport pub is to be shut down after wooden fence was setup round the perimeter of the property owned by the Davidson property Group, who declined a statement. 

When asked about he situation Mike Perkins from CAMRA said:

“It is a classic Victorian pub, and the building is full of history. We have lost the London Hotel, and now it looks like the Shakespeare is on its way. On a more positive note, we welcome the upsurge in the new micro pubs and breweries. We now have the Inn Beer shop, Tap and Bottle, the Barrel House, it’s not all doom and gloom for beer drinkers in Southport.”
