A Doncaster town centre pub appears to have closed - just weeks after opening.

The Pit Club, a mining themed bar, opened its doors in Cleveland Street just before Christmas.

But the venue appears to have closed down - less than a fortnight after being unveiled.

The windows at the new bar have been shuttered and doors chained. A large concrete block has also been placed to block the rear entrance in the courtyard off Cleveland Street.

Fixtures and fittings also appear to have been removed from the bar which has been in darkness for the last few days. The pub's Facebook page has also been removed from the web.

Cutting Edge Design Company, a Doncaster firm, which was involved in marketing the bar said on its own Facebook page: "This page no longer has any involvement with The Pit Club, Cleveland Street. We are a design and marketing company that did work for The Pit Club. Sorry for the confusion guys. The Pit Club Town Centre is closed."
