THE Furness Railway pub is closed to the general public in accordance to government guidelines, but appears open due to a deep clean being undertaken.

To dispel rumours that it has stayed open, the Wetherspoons in Barrow has come out to ensure people that this is staff engaged in a deep clean of the pub or managers looking after the building while closed.

The pub has said they are aware of the unrest in the public and are worried about the spread of the virus and want to assure you we are fully committed to stopping the spread of the virus.
