London (AP) — After the building was closed by Blizzard, dozens of customers stopped by for a drink at Britain’s highest pub, staying longer than negotiated.
After spending the third night at the Tanhill Inn in Yorkshire Dales, 270 miles (435 km) north of London, 61 people woke up on Monday. They haven’t been able to leave since Friday, when a late autumn storm brought snow and strong winds, power cables fell and roads were blocked.
The pub is 1,732 feet (528 meters) above sea level and is accustomed to being blocked due to bad weather.
Manager Nicola Townsend said the staff organized movies, quiz nights and karaoke for stranded guests. They have also been entertained by Oasis cover band Noasis, who has been stuck in the pub since the gig on Friday night.
The guest was “very well,” Townsend said.
“They have made a lot of friendships … like a big family, it’s the best way I can explain it,” she said. “One woman actually said,’I don’t want to leave.'”
Townsend said he hopes people will be able to return home later on Monday once the road opens.
