Boat that Rocks and Clipper Close

The Boat That Rocks

A popular bar and pub have closed down in Weymouth and Portland.

The Boat That Rocks Bar and Restaurant at Portland Marina has shut its doors.

Tenants who were running the business handed back the lease last week LEAVING uncertainty among couples who've booked the venue for weddings.

Portland Marina told Wessex FM they're actively searching for a new tenant and will honour all current commitments when they re-open.

The second place to shut up shop, the Clipper Pub in Weymouth.

Administrators Zolfo Cooper has told us the company had been struggling in the economic climate for some time and that some pubs owned by the Bramwell Pubs group will continue trading.

A staff member at the Clipper said he doesn't expect the Weymouth pub to re-open.
