A popular riverside pub is reopening tomorrow after it unexpectedly closed just a few days before Christmas.
The Ferry Inn on Ferry Road, Horning, mysteriously shut its doors just before the festive holiday period.
Tom Boardman, general manager, would not give the reason behind the temporary closure but confirmed the business would reopen today.
Ferry Inn owner and landlord, Ian Chinn, was not available to comment.
The closure came soon after Chinn was fined and given two 18-week prison sentences, to run concurrently and suspended for a year for health and safety breaches.
