A POPULAR high street pub in Somerset which closed suddenly earlier this year has gone on the market to rent.

The Pub, found on Wellington High Street, can now be rented for a price of £17,500.

However, it's being marketed for 'retail/café purposes', meaning the venue does not necessarily have to remain in use as a pub.
