Rookwood Bar & ‘Cue on Back Colquitt Street has closed to make way for a new concept.

An announcement on Rookwood’s website confirmed it had permanently shut and will shortly be replaced by an as yet unnamed operator.

The message adds: “We’d like to thank our loyal customers and staff for their support over the last three years, and wish the new team taking over the best of luck with their new venture.”
