The Haven - Not an Open/Shut Case
Pub operators remaining tight lipped about plans
Chandlers shut last month and Ealing Today was informed that The Haven had closed 'indefinitely'.
The trade magazine for the pub industry - The Publican - reported that Faucet's annual accounts for the 12 months to May 30, 2009, filed with Companies House, show turnover dipped 1.3 per cent to £6.85m, while the group posted a pre-tax loss of £57,000, against the previous year's profit of £151,000.
Steve Cox, the entrepreneur who founded the company in 2000, has now apparently bought a number of the sites from the administrators. It's unclear whether The Haven is one of them - but details about the Ealing pub remain on the company website.
