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.

Back To Lockdown

** WE CAN ONLY DO DELIVERY **

We still can’t open… nor can we do Takeaway/Collections.

So we’re back to our pre-Christmas opening times:

  • Thursday: 3pm – 7pm
  • Friday: 3pm – 7pm
  • Saturday: 3pm – 7pm

** FOR DELIVERIES ONLY **

Make your order online and we’ll deliver – if you’re in Marple, Marple Bridge, or within a couple of miles. If in doubt, give us a call.

Takeaways & Deliveries

We’re reopening our online shop so you can order draught beer & lager, plus wines, cocktails and bottled beers. We can deliver locally: Marple; Marple Bridge. Or you can collect from the bar.

Note that we do not deliver the same day as you order. So you can order any day you like but we can only deliver on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Collections are on the same basis.

Obviously you can’t come into the bar at the moment but you can turn up to our door for takeaways on Thursday, Friday & Saturday between 2pm and 5pm.

  • Monday: Closed
  • Tuesday: Closed
  • Wednesday: Closed
  • Thursday: 2pm-5pm Takeaway/Collection
  • Friday: 2pm-5pm Takeaway/Collection
  • Saturday: 2pm-5pm Takeaway/Collection
  • Sunday: Closed

OPENING

We’re aiming to open on July 4th at 12 noon (until 11pm).

We obviously need to get all the correct safety measures in place as per government guidelines – which we should.

Space will be limited but we’ll be offering table service inside and outside – hopefully it’s a sunny weekend. We’re not taking table bookings at the moment so that we can welcome everyone who’s supported us.

Then we’ll be opening from Thursday July 9th. Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday will be our normal opeing days for the moment. We’ll also have food available from Eat Homemade (menu tba).

So next week we’ll be suspending deliveries so that we can get the bar open and food onto the online shop too.

Father’s Day

Well it’s been an interesting couple of days! The takeaway service has been going so well we ran out of flagons for the draught beer. I managed to source some more on Thursday – for delivery today (Saturday). But the supplier was expecting DPD Local to deliver – they don’t do Saturdays. Which meant I had to go up to the DPD depot at Denton this morning & hope they’d arrived!! Thankfully they were there – so panic over.

But… when I got back to the bar we found we had just enough draught beer to supply the orders for Father’s Day. If we received any more we’d be knackered! One of the great features of being a new bar – we don’t know how much we’re going to sell!!

It’s not easy to find a draught beer supplier on a Saturday. But, shout out to Chris at Torrside Brewing in New Mills for coming back to us so quickly. We now have 3 extra ales for home delivery (or pickup) on our online shop. Only had the chance to try the IPA properly – it’s very good – citrus flavours. The Amber and Bitter taste good but only had a sip of them – I’ll have a proper taste during the week.

Anyway, we’re all stocked up & raring to go for Father’s Day delivery – we don’t normally deliver on Sundays but we’ve made an exception for all you lovely sons & daughters who are buying for their Dads.
