A PUB in Faringdon is holding a closing down party this evening, after closing due to 'unforeseen circumstances'.

Ruby Jacks, in the town's Market Place, will officially shut its doors on Saturday.

Landlady Jackie Smith, who runs the pub with partner Daniel Broda, said: "It is not a decision I have taken lightly.

"I want to thank everyone that has supported me over all the years and created so many happy memories. Please come down and help us go out with a bang."

Miss Smith also runs the Clanfield Tavern in a nearby village.
