A popular pub that recently announced its closure has reopened again under new management just one week later. 

The new landlady of The Lyndhurst Bar and Kitchen, situated on Queen's Road in central Reading, Rebecca Blissett has posted on social media introducing herself. 

On a recent post to Facebook, she wrote the following "Hello people, I would like to introduce myself… I am the new Landlady of The Lyndhurst!

"We have plenty of plans for the near future and are looking forward to getting the food back on hosting live music hosting quizzes and showing live sport.

"I’m so excited to welcome you all to our lovely pub."

This comes as on Friday May 10 The Lyndhurst's previous management posted a message on social media to thank all its locals for the support they have shown the establishment over the years. 

The pub had welcomed guests in for the last time the night before, Thursday May 9.

A spokesperson for The Lyndhurst said the following statement:

"Thank you Reading. It’s been an absolute pleasure and honour.

"We have been overwhelmed with the support you have shown us over the years and especially over the past week – thank you for visiting us one last time yesterday and for the wonderful cards and personal messages and stories that you shared – there was laughter, good bye tears, plenty of hugs and good wishes.

"Truly humbling to see a full house on the last day. Stay well and happy all!"

The pub has had a rocky history, having seen a handful of landlords in the last decade.

In July 2016, the then-landlord Heath Thomas closed the pub after complaining about rising rent costs.

Kris Dorward took the pub over later that year but after three years he also threw in the towel.

The Stonegate Group, which is advertising the site, is currently looking to refinance after falling into £2.6 billion in debt. 

GMB Union has expressed concern for the employees that refinancing could lead to crippling payments to service the debt due to increasing interest rates.

The owners of The Lyndhurst on Queens Road previously revealed that they would be moving on from the pub in a statement released in February. 

Chef and manager Sheldon Fernandes and Dishon Vas said: "We are at the end of an amazing journey as our tenancy comes to an end and we think it's the right time to pass on the baton of this special little pub to someone who can take it forward."
