Hold Bar

Our Hold Bar is getting a makeover. The bar is being moved to improve the layout and we’re introducing a new line up of events, with something going on every weekday evening.
  • Monday ~ Our established Monday night quiz will be moving to the Hold Bar from 20 April.
  • Tuesday ~ Open mic
  • Wednesday ~ Pop up events night, featuring everything from comedy to poetry and a whole load of things we haven’t even thought of yet.
  • Thursday ~ DJs
  • Friday ~ Live music
We’re installing 10 keg lines so, in addition to 5 hand-pulls, the Hold Bar will be serving a great range of craft beers, ciders and lagers, and there will also be a fine array of handmade bar food, including pies, pickles, bread and cheese.

PLEASE NOTE: The Hold Bar will be shut for the refit from Saturday 11 April.

Come and celebrate the reopening with us on Friday 17 April from 6pm (free entry), featuring Kieran & the Iguanas, DJ Paulo Fernandez and special guests. More
