News that the bar and restaurant at the Raven Resort in New Hope had unexpectedly closed set off an avalanche of rumors Tuesday. The hotel portion of the resort remains open for business.
The popular destination, located at 385 W. Bridge St., typically ramps up for the busy warm season at this time of year.
A spokesperson for the Raven said Wednesday that the closure was due to “sudden repair issues,” and that the shutdown was temporary.
“It could be a month,” he said.
The repair problems were “pretty major” and involved “the kitchen and roof,” he added.
The good news?
“We’ll be open before Pride,” said the spokesperson.
New Hope’s Pride Parade and Fair take place May 18.
