Flood Water Forces Village Pub To Temporarily Close For Repairs
9:36am 22nd January 2013
A rural Dorset pub's closed till March so it can carry out repairs after flooding.
The New Inn at Cerne Abbas was badly affected by torrential rain last July. They've been battling against high ground water levels.
The historic pub, which saw substantial investment by Bridport based brewers Palmers, only re-opened last June having more than doubled its accommodation and upgraded other facilities.
The New Inn was awarded Dorset dining pub of the year for 2012.
