“A lot of beer left”
60 guests snowed in the bar all night
In fact, they only come to the British pub Tan Hill for one concert – the 60 or so guests stayed there for two nights. Storm Irwin wreaks havoc in Great Britain and makes escape impossible. However, this does not detract from the good mood.
Because of the storm and snow, visitors to the concert stayed two nights in a snow-covered British pub. Guests are stranded after a performance by the Aussies at the Tan Hill Inn in the Yorkshire Dales National Park in northern England, the BBC reports. Autumn Storm Irwin also caused traffic chaos in other parts of Great Britain and caused many household blackouts.
So about 60 guests from the pub had to spend not only one, but two nights in the hostel – some in makeshift sleeping quarters. Two-thirds of them booked an entire night there anyway. On Saturday morning, nearly a meter of snow fell around the 528-meter pub – according to the company, the highest in the country – so surrounding streets remained blocked even after the storm subsided. It was not clear yet on Sunday when the guests would be able to leave.
Club manager Nicola Townsend said her team is trying to make people happy. “I wanted to launch a contest yesterday for the best dressed snowman, but it was so cold and the wind so strong that it didn’t work.” According to the BBC report, the guests remained in good spirits. Bar visitor Martin Overton told the announcer that there was still “a lot of beer out there”.
