THE owner of two pubs in Ludlow says that as soon as restrictions allow they will be pulling pints again.

Jon Saxon, landlord of the Blood Bay in High Street and the Dog Hangs Well in Corve Street, says that as soon as safety allows the two pubs will open again.

He said that because of the size of the pubs the number of people allowed in is limited and this will affect when he is able to open.

Mr Saxon said that rumours and postings that the pubs had closed permanently are completely untrue.
