A Salisbury bar that closed due to the first lockdown is now up for sale.

The former Dancing Moose premises, at 36 Blue Boar Row, is being marketed by Savills estate agents.

The "substantial character property" is located next to the market square.

The property is licensed to serve alcohol - between 11am and midnight Monday to Thursday, until 1am on Fridays and Saturdays, and 11.30pm on Sundays.

There is also a courtyard beer garden with direct access to the street.

The original parts of the site date back to the 16th century, and there are character features.

Dancing Moose opened in July 2019, offering music, cocktails and food, but closed permanently one year later due to the Covid pandemic.

When the first lockdown restrictions lifted, the bar did not reopen.

Marc Clark, owner of Dancing Moose, blamed Covid-19 along with the BBC's Novichok drama for its closure.

He said: "Unfortunately with all the press around the Covid-19 pandemic and followed up by the BBC revisiting the Novichok episode we feel that Salisbury is slowly closing its doors as a city and we can't be a part of that.

"The rents and rates in this area also played a part in our decision to close."
