A HISTORIC Flintshire pub will soon be re-opened as a 'bar and restaurant', according to its former owners.

The Druid Inn is located at Gorsedd near Holywell and closed its doors on Saturday, June 17.

It is said to be the oldest building in the village and rumoured to date back to the 12th Century.

Its new owners are yet to be confirmed, but its last occupants have stated that it is set to become a 'bar and restaurant' in the coming months.

Speaking after closing the venue, a statement from the previous owners read: "Very sad to see our local pub like this, however, it has been purchased by new owners who will reopen it as a bar / restaurant after some refurbishment. So looking forward to the future."


A previous Facebook post just before the closure added: "Hi all. As you now know the Druid Inn has now been purchased and will shortly have new owners so it is to close.

"Apologies for any inconvenience but as you can imagine there is a great deal involved with the move."

The pub is currently boarded up as it awaits its new owners to start on the renovations.

The identity of the new owners remains anonymous at this time, but will become clear in the coming weeks.
