Sulphur Spring Inn Closes

Last call for Arbutus landmark.

Sulphur Spring Inn, the Arbutus landmark watering hole on the 1400-block of Sulphur Spring Road, closed its doors last weekend.

The future of the business location is undetermined, sources tell Arbutus Patch.

While there are other bars in the Arbutus area, the Sulphur Spring Inn held a special place for many residents as a convenient and friendly establishment in the center of town.

"About 75 percent of the clientele lived within walking distance," said Inn regular and occasional employee Craig Rollins.

Since 2007, the bar has been owned by Kathy and John Miller. The location has been known as the Sulphur Spring Inn for at least 30 years. According to locals, it was Lissau's Restaurant until the 1970s.

Rollins posted a thank you to the Millers at a site he owns, mixwood.com. "They're local people, decent people, and good friends," he said.

First super fresh and now the SS Inn What's next Arbutus will be a ghost town at this rate? A grave yard of abandoned buildings?

Why did they close? Is it up for sale?

increasing amount of abandoned buildings from store to homes is amoung us and has been going on for awhile now. you would think someone would get off their rear end and help the area instead of sitting in a circle with heads turned screaming about themselves and how great they are.

I grew up in Arbutus and remember when the bar was called, "Seager's". My dad used to take me in there and sit me up on the bar. He would give me nickels to feed into a bubblegum machine that dispensed red pitachios. My mom did not like him taking me to the bar with him and would fuss at him when she saw my little hands stained red from the dye. I loved my childhood in Arbutus!
