Rent rises/license issues/additional legal requirements...could be anything really. I'm sure we'll hear something at some point

My gut is saying that whoever they lease the premises from saw how popular they got and decided to gouge them. It's happened to a couple of other businesses I know about over the last couple of months.

I think Andrew has hit nail on the head as a potential cost - landlords are looking to squeeze now on successful businesses.

Pity as it was a lovely bar, but its location was maybe one thing against it - if it was a little closer to the city centre.

Hopefully they'll be back on the horse soon because the food was magic and the range of cask great too.

It's a long-standing problem with many Irish landlords who are so short-sighted and intent in bleeding businesses dry- who then go to the wall, leaving premises idle

But that's for another discussion, I really hope that the staff (who were always brilliant) are looked after and we see a new venture from these guys sooner rather than later.
