Halfway House set to reopen in May says new owner
A well known Connah’s Quay pub is set to reopen in May according to its new owner.
The Halfway House on Church Street was sold at auction on Tuesday.
The pub closed in 2018 and was put on the market at the time for £600,000.
The pub sold for around £50,000 more than the guide price of £185,000.
In a post on Facebook, new owner Shaun Ketley said:
“The pub will be re-opening “hopefully beginning of May 2020.”
It will be kept as a pub and eating house along with some live entertainment.
We would appreciate you to like and share our page to support local businesses.
This is a family run pub which is nothing to do with breweries we are a free house.”
Great to hear that the Halfway house is opening again at the end of May as a family run free house with Food and live entertainment. Well done Shaun and family. @DeesideDotCom @leaderlive @nwalestweetsuk
