A PUB said to have been serving customers for 1,200 years is fighting for survival because of soaring energy costs.
His general manager, Ronan Gaffney, 添加: “It’s outrageously more expensive.
“It’s not like at home where you can turn everything off but the fridge and freezer.
“We can’t cut down on energy bills but are being charged double.”
“Our light bill is 10 times more than what it is in a house because at home you can turn off all the lights except the one you’re in.
“But you can’t do that in a pub.
他加了: “Winter for a lot of pubs, like my own, is the quiet season.
“If pubs don’t have an infrastructure or financial backing then I can imagine that a lot of them will struggle.”
