A Facebook post from The Front Page said: "A bit of news for everyone.

"Following 34 fantastic years at the helm of The Front Page Bar, Marie and I have decided it's time to retire and allow someone else to continue to build upon the excellent, award-winning, hospitality venue that we, together with the help of everyone at Team Front Page and all of you our loyal and visiting customers, have helped create over many years.

"Staff have already been made aware. Marie and I aren't getting any younger and there are areas of this wonderful world that we would love to explore while we're both still, young, fit and able.

"The sale of The Front Page will go public today and Marie and I just wanted to make all of you aware ahead of the sale.

"In the meantime however, it's business as usual at The Front Page for now with another busy week ahead planned.

"Thank you everyone for your ongoing support as always. We'll keep everyone updated with ongoing developments."
