Landmark pub Noctors has been put up for sale after eight years operating as the 'music house of Maidenhead'.
Landlady Eileen Noctor, who transformed the pub into a championed music venue, is moving on to a 'new chapter' in her life.
She put the lease on the market two weeks ago and said there had been a lot of interest in the venue, which is located at the corner of Broadway and Queen Street.
It remains open and will have live music on this weekend.
Musician Tony Murtagh, of Pinkneys Green, who has performed at Noctors for the past five years called it a 'sad day'.
He said he feared more punters would start going to Windsor and Reading instead of coming to Maidenhead.
"There seems to be a little more going on there," added the father-of-one.
Vicky Averis, a spokesman for Enterprise Inns, which owns the building, said it was their intention to keep the site as a pub.
