Beachwood Mall in Cleveland
BEACHWOOD, Ohio - The Pub at Beachwood Place has served its last plate of fish and chips and poured its last pint of Guinness. The British-themed restaurant and bar abruptly closed Wednesday after two and a half years in the mall.
"This was not an easy decision, but closing our Beachwood location allows us to focus on other, more profitable restaurants and is therefore in the best interest of our company, " David Bell, Director of Operations for The Pub's parent company, Tavern Restaurant Group, said in a release Thursday. "We are very grateful to the Beachwood community for their patronage and to our team members for their efforts, but this particular location has been unable to meet sales quotas for some time."
The Pub's sudden closing follows the shuttering of its Rocky River outpost in 2011. It leaves the Cincinnati-based chain with 11 locations in four states. The company also operates restaurants under the names deSha's and Nicholson's.
"The Pub concept overall continues to thrive in other markets, including our licensed Pub at Cleveland International Airport, and we look forward to bringing The Pub to select locations in the future, " the statement read.
