Venuewatch: Brighton loses two pub venues

The collapse of Pubs N Bars has lead to two Brighton pubs closing down, both of which had been venues for live music. The Dyke Tavern and The Hobgoblin in York Place were shut on Thursday by Grant Thornton, who are trying to salvage the company's assets.

Punch - owners of the fabric of the Hobgoblin - are planning to reopen their pub with a temporary landlord; three further Pubs N Bars outlets The Good Companions, the Tamplins Ale House and The Winner are still trading as normal.
