A TOTAL of 10 pubs closed across Wrexham and Flintshire in 2022 amid calls for more support for locals in the UK. 

Earlier this year CAMRA, the Campaign for Real Ale, called for more support to save the UK’s pubs after figures showed that 21 pubs a week are closing for business or losing their licensees. 

In 2022, a total of 10 pubs closed across Wrexham and Flintshire. The figures are compiled using data from WhatPub.com, the Campaign for Real Ale's online pub guide, which is updated by volunteers across the UK.

It's estimated this covers 98% of pubs and these figures show where pubs are believed to be lost forever to conversion or demolition. CAMRA cannot guarantee the accuracy of this data.

CAMRA has two different definitions for pub closures. First is a 'permanent closure', where a pub has been converted or demolished.


Secondly is a ‘long-term closure’, which is when the pub isn’t trading but the building is still technically a pub (no tenant etc).

During 2022, there were seven long-term closures in Wrexham and Flintshire at the following pubs: 

  • Garth Mill Ffynnongroew CH8 9HB
  • Hare & Hounds Connah's Quay CH5 4DP
  • Star Inn Llangollen LL20 8LA
  • Blk Sheep Baa & Grill Eyton LL13 0SP
  • Mill Inn Cefn Mawr LL14 3NL
  • Nags Head Lavister LL12 0DN
  • Hanmer Arms Hanmer SY13 3DE

While there were three permanent closures:

  • Feathers Inn Bagillt CH6 6HE
  • Moreton Inn Johnstown LL14 6PU
  • Bridge Inn Caergwrle LL12 9DT

Pub closure statistics revealed by the consumer organisation for the period July – December 2022 show that 554 pubs in Great Britain are now classed as ‘long term closures’, meaning they have gone out of business or are standing empty. 

The shocking statistics have prompted CAMRA to call for more support to save local pubs which are at the heart of communities up and down the country. 

Commenting on pub closure figures for the last half of 2022, CAMRA Chairman Nik Antona said: 

“Without a support package, we risk losing more pubs which are at the heart of community life and play such a crucial role in bringing people together and tackling loneliness and social isolation. 

“With the cost of doing business rocketing, energy costs sky-high and customers tightening their belts it is little wonder that hundreds of pubs across the country are closing for business or are standing empty. 

“That’s why CAMRA is calling on all pub goers to join our campaign for urgent help to save our pubs which includes giving more help with energy bills from April, making the business rates system fairer for pubs and cutting tax on draught beer and cider by 20% to give our locals a fighting chance to compete with the likes of supermarket alcohol.”
