The pub is not closing it’s doors, It is becoming a gastro-pub so it is still a watering hole, there is no reason why the same regulars and people from the LGBT community cannot still regard it as a GLBT business. It just means they will have to buy meals from time to time. It’s not becoming a Tesco.
Fair enough notagain, as long as gay people can still be open about their sexuality once it’s become a mainstream venue. Something I think is doubtful.
its not that a good a pub these days – things have moved on – there are newer and better venues in Cardiff which is why I suspect it is being closed in favour of something else…c’est la vie!
“things have moved on” Maybe so, but the Kings has striven for a long time to provide a friendly welcome to all, regardless of sexual orientation, and Cardiff will be a much poorer place should M&B close this much loved venue!
