May 5th - Up on the A5 at Newtown, Brownhills, things aren’t looking so good. The Terrace restaurant, once a popular establishment, closed just after Christmas and is currently vacant and up for sale, with no sign yet of a buyer - sad really. Back in it’s heyday the place was busy every night.
Meanwhile, almost opposite the Chase Inn is still up for sale. Still open and trading, it’s nonetheless been on the market for ages.
I know society and it’s drinking and socialising habits have changed, but it’s still terribly sad to see these places lost.
I hope they both find new ownership and prosper, I really do…
