Greene King still 'committed' to reopening Bury St Edmunds Flying Fortress pub





A Bury St Edmunds-based brewer said this week it was still 'committed' to re-opening a long-closed pub.

The Flying Fortress pub, in Mount Road, has been closed since April 2014, with the building boarded up and showing no sign of reopening to the public.

Following its closure the Lark Grange housing development has sprung up around the pub.

Greene King, which purchased the Flying Fortress eight years ago, said it was 'still fully committed' to reopening the pub when it could – with the project largely dependent on the developer's progress.

A Greene King spokesperson said: “We remain committed to investing in the Flying Fortress once the housing development around the pub has been completed and it’s great to see construction progressing.

"Once it is all completed we can begin looking at timescales for refurbishing and reopening the pub for the Moreton Hall community.”
