The search is on to find new owners for a Victorian pub which suddenly shut its doors.

The Masons Arms in Harrow Road, Kensal Green, said it stopped serving punters last week (May 28) due to “unfortunate circumstances”.

Further details into why the pub has closed are unclear, and many customers shared their shock about the announcement.

The pub, which dates back to the late 19th century, is up for sale with it going for around £1,750,000.

It is being advertised as “of interest to operators and investors” and its estate agent AG&G boasts how the area has seen significant residential value growth in recent years.

A description reads: “A landmark end of terrace three storey property above basement, of late Victorian style, with various period features beneath a mansard roof. Internally the pub trades on two levels. Small yard to side and rear.”

It is licensed to sell alcohol until 1am from Sunday to Tuesday and 2am from Wednesday to Saturday and investors have the potential to further utilise the upper floors of the watering hole, according to the advert.

The 3,659 sq ft property comes with a basement, a ground floor with a central bar and 70 seated covers, a first floor function room with access to a small balcony and a second floor with four double bedrooms, a bathroom and a dining room.

Many customers shared their upset to the news of the pub closing, as one said: “This pub has been one of the foundation bricks of mine and my family’s lives. Three generations of families have used it, we’ve celebrated births, lives, birthdays and weddings there. Will miss it.”

On the website, The Masons Arms wrote: “We’d like to express our heartfelt gratitude for your support and patronage over the years.”
