Owners of a community pub in Salhouse which closed this month have confirmed they expect it to reopen in November.

Enterprise Inns, the owners of The Bell on Lower Street, in Salhouse, have confirmed that they are looking for a new publican to run the pub and expect it to reopen by the end of next month.

They said the pub's closure on October 10 was taken after the previous publican closed its doors due to personal circumstances.

A spokesperson for Enterprise Inns said: 'We can confirm that The Bell in Salhouse closed on October 10 2016 after the publican took the decision to stop trading but we are in the process of recruiting a new publican to ensure the pub continues to serve the community.

'Enterprise has had a long-term commitment to the pub, having acquired it in March 2004.

'Unfortunately in recent years publicans running The Bell have decided to leave for a number of reasons and in this case it was the personal circumstances of the publican.

'We are committed to The Bell which is a popular local pub and we expect to have it open and trading again by the end of November.'

Locals expressed their sadness when the pub closed suddenly last month.

The pub, which featured in the Good Pub Guide, was given status as a community asset by Broadland District Council to ensure its doors remained open but Colin McCormick, a member of Salhouse Parish Council, said the pub had closed three times in the past five years.
