A POPULAR pub and restaurant takes table bookings for when it re-opens.

The Crown, Walney closed on Sunday, October 3 at 10pm for over a week to give staff some 'well needed time off'.

The pub is set to re-open this Thursday, October 14 for customers to enjoy a well deserved pint and some pub grub again.

A spokesman for the pub announced on Facebook yesterday that they will be taking table bookings again for when they re-open.

They said: "I will be taking bookings tomorrow afternoon for when we reopen!

"Please send a message with your name, date, phone number and how many guests and we will respond to all messages tomorrow."

The team at The Crown decided to re-open after over a weeks closure once they felt 'refreshed and re-energised and ready to go again.'

The popular North Scale pup is also hiring for experienced full and part time bar & waiting staff in the busy restaurant.
