Last orders as Nussbaumer family leaves the Rockmount
PUB-GOERS showed their support for the Rockmount as it opened and closed its doors for the last time under its current leaseholder on Saturday.
David Nussbaumer said the pub had been in his family for 48 years, passed down from his father.
It was an emotional evening and Mr Nussbaumer and some other customers also wore black arm bands.
U2 tribute band US4//U2 played in the public bar, which was already full around 7pm. Balloons were also placed around the pub.
Mr Nussbaumer said they had also had a good evening at the pub on Friday night. 'We have locals, past and present, here and there is no question this is the number one pub.
'People have come from all over the island today.'
He hoped that Randall's would not lose the 'fantastic' and 'loyal' customers that the Rockmount knew when the brewery took over running the establishment.
