Music Night

Now we’re starting to open up properly – not long to wait now – we’ve decided to do more music nights. So this Friday (July 16th 2021) we’re hosting “An Evening with Matt Jacques and Chris Goulding”.

For more info go to @that_matt_chap and @chipped_box.

They’ll be on from about 8pm until late… each doing a solo set, then a combined one to finish off.

We don’t know what they’ll be playing, but it’ll be great anyway.

June 21st

Well it came as no surprise that June 21st reopening has been postponed!

We’re carrying on as normal – or as normal as it gets in the UK now – for the moment, with seats outside & a few seats inside. Looking to get more tables & chairs for outside – especially because the sunny weather is here now.

It’s rumoured that we’ll be open properly in early July – we can only hope.

Monday May 17th ** OPEN **

Yes, we’re opening on May 17th, when we’ll be able to welcome customers inside again: “up to a maximum of six people or two households of any size; groups seated outside must be smaller than 30 people”.

There are some new additions since you were last in the bar:-

  • new wood bar top – got to be seen to be believed
  • stag’s head – all recycled wood
  • new “gate” at the end of the bar to protect bottles etc
  • new wine rack display with wonderful new “gate”

We’re still busy getting everything in order again – been quite a bit of upheaval behind the scenes.

We’ll be continuing with our Home Delivery Service for the time being – we’ll take a view later on in the year to decide if it’s worth carrying on or not.

We normally don’t open on Mondays but we thought that as everyone is wanting to get out that we’d make an exception! So, hope to see everyone on Monday May 17th

Opening Up

Thought I’d say something about our plans for reopening.

We’re not opening on April 12th as we don’t really have enough outside space. Most of the other pubs & bars in Marple are staying closed so we were worried we would be overrun.

So we’ll be back on May 17th, when we’ll be able to welome customers inside again: “up to a maximum of six people or two households of any size; groups seated outside must be smaller than 30 people”.

We’re busy getting everything in order again – updating the kitchen, moving things around in the cellar – all behind the scenes stuff but it’ll make it easier for us.

We’ll be continuing with our Home Delivery Service for the time being – we’ll take a view later on in the year to decide if it’s worth carrying on or not.

We normally don’t open on Mondays but we thought that as everyone is wanting to get out that we’d make an exception! So, hope to see everyone on Monday May 17th
