We miss our customers and are champing at the bit to be able to welcome everyone back into our funny little corner of Bath. A pub is a social place, a safe space to meet with friends and make new ones, somewhere other than your work or your home. For some it’s a sanctuary and to others a replacement front room. For us to be able to give you that experience we need to make sure that you are safe when you come and visit, but also that your comfort is not restrained by measures that completely destroy the conviviality you came to us for.  

Ultimately we have to make decisions based on what’s right for us and our customers. And now is not the right time for us to open. We have been working hard during lockdown so that when we do open we are going to have some really cool things for you to experience. We’ll keep you updated on how we get on with our plans via this website and our social media channels but at this stage we will not be re-opening on 4th of July. 

A huge heartfelt thank you goes out to all of our friends, family, customers and colleagues for all of the support and love. Also a big thank you to the local traders of Bath who kept going so residents (us included) could still enjoy fresh food, home delivered booze and other treats during this difficult time.
