That reports the British channel BBC. The guests of the pub, which is 528 meters above sea level, awoke on Saturday to a thick layer of snow that reached the windows of the bedrooms. A tunnel has since been dug at the front door of the pub, but damage to the power lines has left the roads impassable.
Manager Nicola Townsend reported that everyone was in a good mood and some people didn’t even want to leave. So far 61 people had spent two nights, with many, including the members of the band, set up camp in the pub lounge.
‘Enough beer available’
The staff, according to the manager, had organized activities to entertain the people, including a quiz and various board games. One of the guests, Martin Overton, told BBC News that the atmosphere was “very good” and there was “enough beer available”.
