FREDERICTON– A downtown Fredericton restaurant that’s been in business for more than 10 years announced that it will be closing its doors effective immediately.

The King Street Ale House made the announcement on its Facebook page Thursday morning.

“We’re sad to announce that after 10 years, in two locations, serving thousands of exceptional customers, working with hundreds of great people, and drinking hundreds of great beer, the King Street Ale House will be closing effective immediately,” the post read.

“Thank you to everyone who helped make the last 10 years so enjoyable.”

The post went on to say that Brewbakers, the restaurant located in the same building as the King Street Ale House, has offered to honour any outstanding Ale House gift cards.

The post didn’t offer any further details as to what led to the closure.

“Awww. Man! The end of an era. Time to rethink things! Sad day!” wrote one user.

“That’s sad. It’s our favourite spot! All the best to the amazing staff,” wrote another.

“I am terribly shocked and saddened to read this.” said another commenter. “You have an excellent establishment that has been the home to many great dinners, meetings and created life-long friendships for me. I am so sad to see you go. Very Best.”
