A city centre pub has had to close its doors indefinitely after being "plagued" with flooding and issues with the site's landlords. 

The Edith Cavell underwent a significant refurbishment after it was taken over by new owners Brandon Hoult and Adrian Emmerson in May this year.

However, the pub has now revealed that it has been hit by a water problem every time that heavy rain falls, and has had to close the site indefinitely. 

"We regret to inform you that we are closed until further notice. This decision was not made lightly, and we want to provide you with an explanation as to why we are facing this unfortunate situation," read the announcement on the pub's social media feed.

The text went on to detail an "ongoing issue" with the property.

"Our landlord has not only failed to fulfill their commitments to ensure a water-tight environment for our establishment but has also failed to support us as operators during this challenging time."

The post revealed that the business has dealt with restricted washroom facilities, limited access to the upstairs bar, and forced closures during peak hours.

"Furthermore," read the post, "the living accommodation on our site has also been affected by this issue, making it impossible for us to have a safe and comfortable environment to live in."

"We understand the frustration and inconvenience this has caused to you, our loyal customers, and we sincerely apologise for any disruption to your plans and expectations."

The pub was taken over by new landlords at Stonegate Pub Company in March.

The company is yet to comment on the closure.

The Edith Cavell has promised to keep its customers updated with any further information and news about reopening.
