Work underway to reopen popular Rams Head pub


WORKS is underway to reopen the popular Rams Head pub in Grappenhall village following its shock closure after the Bank Holiday weekend.

News of the sudden closure, announced on social media, was greeted with dismay in the local community.

The pub’s owners, Punch Pubs and Co have now released a statement announcing that “hard work” is underway to reopen the premises.

A Punch Pubs & Co spokesperson said: “We appreciate everything our Publican Ross has done at the Rams Head and respect his decision to leave the business, which has been amicable. We are continuing to work with Ross to ensure a smooth transition.
“The Rams Head will temporarily remain closed whilst we work hard to get the pub back up and running so that it can continue to thrive in the community of Grappenhall for many years to come.”

The shock closure was announced on the Rams Head pub Facebook page yesterday stating: “We write this with great sadness, but wanted to inform you all that we have closed our doors here at The Rams Head Inn for the last time. 😢
“An incredibly difficult decision to make. Several factors have led to this, some out of our control.
“We’ve had an amazing 3 and a half years with you here in the village and we thank you all for your support.
“A huge thanks goes out to each and every one of the team who have gone above and beyond serving you all!
“For now though, thanks once again 🙏
“Everyone at the Rams Head ❤️ 🍻”

The news was greeted with shock and dismay in the local community and beyond.

Built in 1893, The Rams Head is described as “bursting with character and even has a well in the middle! The pub also features cosy log burning stoves as well as newly-fitted garden pods in our beautiful outdoor seating area – providing warmth and shelter all year round.”
