A Huddersfield pub is on the long road to recovery following a “catastrophic” Boxing Day fire. It is heartbreak for pub bosses as the blaze has resulted in bookings being cancelled – including New Year’s Day events.

The 3 Acres pub in Emley, Kirklees, caught fire on Boxing Day and the owners, at the time, described the damage as “vast”. Now they have released a statement on the damage – saying the fire was “catastrophic”.

They said they were only just getting to understand the extent of the damage. The owners also thanked their customers, colleagues and many strangers for their kindness during this period.

The statement said: “The fire on Boxing Day has been catastrophic and heartbreaking for the 3 Acres family. We are only just starting to understand the extent of the damage, and it’s going to be one hell of a road to recovery – but man are we up for the challenge.

“We would like to thank all of our loyal customers, colleagues, family, friends, strangers and alike for all their kind words, condolences, support, love and offer of help and assistance from far and wide. We feel incredibly humbled by the outpouring of support, and will continue to keep you updated as the clean up process begins.

“Unfortunately our servers, telephone lines and all power has been damaged from the fire, and we are unable to connect to any of our systems at this time. Due to the time of year, there is going to be a delay in getting this back up and running – please bear with us. We will endeavour to provide further information on deposits, gift vouchers, reservations, weddings, events and bookings next week.”

The owners added that they had also had to cancel a meeting of the Rockwood Harriers on New Year’s Day. They added: “Finally – a very special thanks goes out to our incredible staff, without whom the 3 Acres wouldn’t be the special place that it is. We thank you all for your hard work, commitment and loyalty throughout 2023.”
