The Canfield House Restaurant, one of the longest-running restaurants in Newport, will soon join the growing list of long-time restaurants that will permanently close in 2015.

The Canfield House Restaurant & Pub last day open will be Saturday, October 31st.

The property will soon be purchased by the International Tennis Hall of Fame & Museum.

The International Tennis Hall of Fame has stated plans for the property do not include operating it as a restaurant, they do intend to use the historic building.

The Canfield House, located at 5 Memorial Boulevard, has been a fixture in Newport since the early 1900’s.

A source tells What’sUpNewp that The Canfield House, Patrick’s Pub/Boca J’s and the Bed & Breakfast has been listed on the market “confidentiality” for several months.
