Yesterday morning we arrived on site first thing to find a load of builders who had worked right through the night. The bar still looked half built, the fridges were still in the middle of the room and the plasterer was still there. It still looked a long way off being a bar! Trying to ignore the chaos downstairs we set to work putting up the curtains, framing the art work and moving the plants and lamps in to the first floor saloon. The old G plan dining sets which we had re-upholstered arrived in the afternoon, as did the revamped pub stools.
At about 3pm the builders packed up their tools and moved out, leaving us to set up the bar. With so many different beers this took some work but with a lot of helpers we got there and by 6pm we were pretty much ready to go.
Thanks to everyone who came down last night, it was brilliant. We’ll be back open at 4pm this afternoon and 12 noon over the weekend.
Hope to see you soon!
