Last drinks were served at the Winton Hotel Bottom Pub last night.
Bridle Path Hospitality director Nicholas Evans had leased the hotel. In a public notice he said it was with sadness and frustration it was ceasing to operate the hotel.
The notice says the lessor/registered proprietor was no longer in legal possession of the Winton Hotel and negotiations with the mortgagee to secure a way forward had been unsuccessful.
The company was moving into a partnership at another Southland hotel.
