A POOLE pub due to reopen its doors today will remain closed until further notice due to “unforeseen circumstances”.

The Rope & Anchor in Sarum Street was due to reopen its doors today at 12pm under new management.

In a post on Facebook on Friday, December 2, the Rope & Anchor said: “Due to unforeseen circumstances there is a delay in opening - we will keep you posted with any news, as it stands we will not be open until further notice. Apologies.”

It comes after a post on social media four days ago, in which the Rope & Anchor shared news of its reopening.
