For more than 36 years, Canterbury Ales, a British-style pub, has been a Huntington standby as well as a landmark.  Now, the restaurant has closed its heavy wooden doors. In a mass email, owner Billy Hoest gave as a reason “the economic slowdown and a multitude of other factors.”

The popular gathering spot was known for its brews and burgers as well as its autumnal Oktoberfest specials.

Note: There is no current affiliation between the Huntington restaurant and Canterbury's Oyster Bay & Grill in Oyster Bay, which remains open.
