LONDON (AP) – Dozens of customers who stopped for drinks at Britain’s highest-altitude pub were kept longer than they had bargained for, after the building was severed by a snowstorm.
61 people woke up on Monday after Tuesday night at the Tan Hill Inn in the Yorkshire Dales, 270 miles (435 km) north of London. They haven’t been able to leave since Friday, when a late-autumn storm brought snow and high winds tore power cables and blocked roads.
The pub is located 528 meters above sea level and is used to being affected by bad weather.
Manager Nicola Townsend said staff organized movie screenings, a quiz night and karaoke for stranded guests. They have also been entertained by an Oasis cover band, Noasis, who have also been stuck at the pub since their performance on Friday night.
Townsend said the guests were “in very good spirits.”
“They formed a pretty close friendship… like an extended family is the best way I can describe it,” she said. “A real woman said ‘I don’t want to leave.'”
Townsend said she hopes people can go home on Monday after roads are cleared.
