Long Sutton pub The Granary to reopen on February 1
A popular Long Sutton pub will be opening its doors again from February 1 following its shock closure yesterday (Monday, January 20).
Sean and Dana Portass will be returning to the bar of The Granary while they search for new tenants to take over the pub.
Mr and Mrs Portass were as shocked as the rest of the town when they received notification yesterday from publicans Donald and Sheena Clarke that they were leaving.
Mr Portass said: "We are going to see what need to be done and the idea is to reopen on February 1. Myself and Dana are going back in
"The last thing we want to see is the pub close as it is a great pub.
"My wife Dana has run it previously and it was a really thriving and successful businesses."

The couple, who have recently put their £7m portfolio of properties in Long Sutton on the market to head for a new life in Norfolk, are planning to bringing back their successful formula of live music and food nights to The Granary.
They are also currently renovating The Red Lion in Holbeach which is hoped to opened later this year.
