The ex-pub, which was Barocco’s Italian Restaurant and Wine Bar prior to Babar Elephant, is up for sale with Skipton chartered surveyors Westlake and Co.

A spokesman for Babar Elephant cited rent and a drainage issue for closing its Fence venture.

The company opened the Four Elephants restaurant in Skipton Road, Foulridge, in October last year.
