Historic pub closed until further notice
MYSTERY surrounds the future of the Cat and Fiddle pub after it shut up shop
The Buxton Road pub, which is the second highest pub in England, closed to the public at the end of last month.
No date has been announced as yet for its re-opening.
A spokesman for Robinsons brewery, which owns the pub, would not reveal any details of what caused the closure other than saying: “There are some property issues that have to be addressed which our property team is looking at the moment.”
The spokesman added: “We won’t know when the pub will re-open until these issues have been bottomed out.”
The pub is a muchloved stop for walkers, cyclists and bikers using the A537 to which is gives its name.
It was built in 1813, and has had many landlords and tenants over the years.
A notice on the Cat and Fiddle ‘Cat Cam’ website said: ‘Sorry, as of 23rd December the pub is closed pending the appointment of a new landlord.’
The road is dubbed one of the most dangerous in Britain because of the number of crashes that have occurred there.
