This might stand as an example of the importance of Real Ale to establishing a pub business. It never caught the imagination of local Real Ale drinkers, as the token so-called "real" ales were dispensed through keg taps using CO2 pressure, so weren't actually Real Ales. Barely three months after opening, the business was advertised for sale on the Morning Advertiser website and it closed down at about the end of October.
