THE Queen's Head pub in the centre of Uxbridge has closed its doors at one of the busiest times of the year.
The pub, in Windsor Street, went into liquidation on Saturday and has been closed since, missing out on potential festive season trade.
Punch Taverns Brewery are taking over the premises and plan to re-open the pub in the new year, but any changes which may take place are unclear.
Frank Harris, who owns Uxbridge Collectibles next door but one to the Queen's Head, said: "It feels like my right arm has been cut off, I can't believe it has had to close.
"I was in there Friday night and it was heaving, busier than it's been all year.
"Then I was going to pop in on Saturday for lunch and found out I couldn't because it wasn't opening."
