The winter service finally got through: Around 60 people were stuck in an inn in northern England after heavy snowfall. Now you can leave. But not all of them head home straight away.

Her case went around the world: after three nights in a snow-covered pub in northern England, the around 60 guests left their involuntary quarters.

The snowplow "finally got through on Monday," Nicola Townsend, landlady of the Tan Hill Inn, told the PA agency late Monday evening.

59 of the 61 guests left.

The two remaining guests wanted to hang on for another day and then leave on Tuesday.

The 61 guests were stranded after an Oasis cover band performed on Friday night.

The autumn storm "Arwen" had also caused traffic chaos in other parts of Great Britain and caused the electricity to fail in many households.

The last one and a half meters of snow piled up around the restaurant in the Yorkshire Dales National Park, which had been snowed in dozens of times in its history.

It's about ten miles to the next street. According to the Telegraph, the way there was blocked by snow or overturned power lines.

The visitors to what they say was the highest pub in England passed the time with karaoke, quizzes and board games, as Townsend reported.

The motto: Snowasis instead of Oasis.

Something was improvised at night: Many guests were accommodated in the hostel rooms, others slept on sofas or on mattresses on the floor.

Everyone was given the opportunity to shower regularly.

Alcohol was only available from the afternoon

Supplies were also provided.

Townsend went on to limit the serving of alcohol to after three in the afternoon.

Previously, a pub-visitor on the BBC was happy that there was "still a lot of beer there."

In view of this, Townsend added on ITV channel that it was only superficially joking that it was good not to have the real band Oasis as a guest.

Their ex-front man Liam Gallagher is considered contentious and eager to drink.

But despite this alcohol policy, musicians and guests in the 17th-century pub apparently got along well.
