Confusion over future of two Market Place pubs
There is confusion about what is happening at two well-known pubs in Newbury.
The Old Waggon & Horses and Canal Bar were both meant to open for a final time on Thursday.
But according to sources and fans of the drinking establishments both failed to do so.
On Saturday it is understood that The Waggon opened with temporary staff brought in by Enterprise Inns who own the pub and that the manger left with no notification.
This lunchtime both pubs looked like they had been stripped of a number of their assets and it is uncertain what will happen to them.
