The Noah's, in Hartshill, Stoke-on-Trent closed due to keyboard warriors and dick heads

A pub that re-opened after restrictions were eased has been forced to shut again.

The Noah’s, in Hartshill, Stoke-on-Trent closed due to keyboard warriors and dick heads. And the owners have blamed the customers. The Noah’s, in Hartshill, Stoke-on-Trent, closed last Friday.

One of it’s customers took to social media to complain about the venue, with another saying a “massive fight” broke out there last weekend.

The Noah’s has announced it’s closure with a note pinned to the front door.

The note says that “keyboard warriors” have forced them to shut again.

The note reads “Sorry, we are closed until further notice… bye, for now. We apologise for any inconvenience.

We would like to (sarcastically) thank all the ‘d***heads’ that did not follow the rules and the keyboard warriors writing nonsense on social media.

Your actions have cost the jobs of 15 people and closed a well-established local business.”

It finished by thanking all the loyal customers before saying they “will be back”. Although the pub had a license to open until midnight the owners decided to close at 10pm each night.

One evening they even closed at 8pm as customers were not “behaving themselves”.

The pub responded to social media questions over their decision to close by saying “Have you ever tried telling your kids to stay seated?

Imagine telling 100 kids to stay seated! It’s very similar with people who enjoy going out drinking with friends – they have been sat down for five months waiting to get back into the pub.

All our staff are here to help our customers follow the guidelines but not everybody listens.

They think it’s OK to not wear a mask inside, don’t understand why more than six people on a table is an issue, and some even think they are exempt due to medical issues (yet don’t carry an inhaler).

Anyone not adhering to our rules is not served and asked to leave. We didn’t have to open. It is frustrating that people forget that times have changed. Therefore you can’t expect all customers to correspond in the correct way.” The owners of the pub have been contacted for further comment.
