Shirley pub closes doors

Sarah Mason 15th Apr, 2022

A SHIRLEY pub has closed its doors.

The Craft Inn on Stratford Road released a statement on its Facebook page saying it was permanently closing.

It added: “We want to thank all the staff, past and present for all their efforts, contributions and support.

“Simply put, running a venue is only possible because of you.

“And of course to our customers – we want to thank each and everyone one of you for your continued support, we truly loved being in Shirley.”

The pub’s sister venue, Sommar Solihull, remains open.
