It is sad to report that after six months the Hedon Fitness and Nutrition shop on New Road managed by Rob Barr has closed down “due to unforeseen circumstances”… there’s more gloomy news too – but we have some good news as well!

  • It is sad to report that after six months the Hedon Fitness and Nutrition shop on New Road managed by Rob Barr has closed down “due to unforeseen circumstances”. The shop’s Facebook Page says that they are sorry to be leaving and thanks are offered to all the customers that have supported them along the way.
  • After three years in the town as licensees of the King’s Head, Nick and Sue Parkin have left the pub. We wish Nick and Sue all the best for the future. The pub’s Facebook Page has been closed down.
  • The Silver Star Chinese takeaway at No. 1 Market Place is currently closed until Friday 5th December 2014.

  1. Saw your post about the fitness shop closing down. Would you by any chance know who the landlord is and if it’s available for rent please? Thank you

  2. King’s is a fantastic historic building and I agree with Phil; it has great potential to be quirky, proper local and will hopefully attract a wider clientele under its new management.

  3. The Kings has a lot of potential, it would be great to revert back to a traditional real ale pub than it’s disco lights trying to be the Tower nightclub.

    It’s a shame that Hedon’s pubs aren’t so much better. Apart form The Station which is the best, Haven Arms have a good selection of ales, Shaky is way too small but Kings and Queens need a reinvention.
