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