A BAR in Boscombe has had to close its doors permanently due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Baxter’s Bar, in Christchurch Road, has closed after the pandemic had a “huge impact” on its business.

A post in its Facebook page said: “Sadly the Covid-19 pandemic has had a huge impact on our business and we have taken the decision to shut the doors permanently.

“We would appreciate no inbox activity and questions directly, as we are just as upset to have to make this very difficult and only choice we had, decision.

“To all our staff and all who made Baxters what it was over the years, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for everything and we are sorry you are finding out about this now.

“We love you all and wherever life takes you, we wish you all the best.”
