A Norwich pub is encouraging its customers to drink the bar dry and send the business off in style before it closes at the end of the week.
The team behind The York Tavern, on Leicester Street in the golden triangle, are spending their last days behind the bar encouraging customers to help clear the pub's stocks ahead of its closure on Friday, when the lease on the property expires.
Sending out a series of messages on social media on New Years Eve the team said: 'Tomorrow might be your last chance to drink in the York. Like and share if you want to help drink us dry!
'Come drink us dry! Let's send this pub off in style!'
In October the team behind the pub revealed talks for a new 20-year lease with their landlords Ei Publican Partnerships had broken down.
Speaking ahead of Friday, Russell Evans, the operator of The York Tavern said he and his team were sorry to be leaving the pub: 'It's a real community pub, people are really sad it's closing.'
Jim Youngs, the pub's general manager said; 'It's such a shame, the customers are great, I think they're some of the best in the city.
