A PUB which has been closed since the start of the pandemic is still up for sale.

The Dancing Moose, located at 36 Blue Boar Row, has been on the market since January 2022, and two years on, a buyer is yet to come forward.

The short-lived Salisbury branch of Dancing Moose opened in July 2019, offering music, cocktails and food, but closed permanently one year later due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

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

Speaking at the time, Marc Clark, owner of Dancing Moose, blamed Covid-19. 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."

Prior to the Dancing Moose days, the premises was occupied by the popular restaurant, Bills, which closed in May 2019.

Before that, the building was the former coaching inn, The Chough, and eager-eyed readers will be able to spot that the sign for the Chough is still in place above the window.

The premises is currently for sale or to let with estate agents Myddelton and Major.

Described as a "restaurant bar with residential ancillary. Potential conversion and development opportunity."

The building occupies 1,953 square feet (1,018 square metres) of land.

The Journal contacted Myddelton and Major for more information.
