The Golden Lion Wetherspoons pub on the Cornhill in Ipswich had been put up for sale in February, with the chain of pubs citing “commercial reasons” behind the decision.

On Sunday the pub closed for the final time, posting the following message on its Facebook page.

“So guys and girls, ladies and gents, it is very sadly our last night tonight.

“We want to thank you all from the bottom of our hearts for being such great customers and for all your kind words and support.”

It is understood the staff have moved to other roles at Wetherspoons’ two other pubs in Ipswich – The Robert Ransome and The Cricketers.
