Lockdown Won’t Get Us Down

Well, maybe lockdown has gotten us a little bit down, but we’ve decided to tackle this new set of restrictions with as much energy as we can.

We’re sad about the pandemic. We’re bummed out that we probably won’t be able to get our bar open as we intended it for months and months to come.

But we can’t really do anything about it. As much as we like being in control, at the moment things just aren’t within our grasp. So we’re doing what we have to do, and what every good northerner does, and just cracking on.

One of the most defeating things we felt during the first lockdown was seeing everything closed, and the streets empty. We don’t want to feel like that again. That’s why we’ve decided to stay open every weekend to create a place that feels a bit like the normal world, and spread a bit of happiness.

Your friendly local off-license

It seems strange to us that because of government guidelines we’ve had to become an off-license rather than a boujie little bar. Funny how the world works, isn’t it?

But what that means is thanks to our license being as it is, we can continue opening every weekend. That’s good!

It means you can pop by every Friday, Saturday and/or Sunday for fresh beers, more wine or a few ciders, and maybe even have a little chat. Tell us about what you’ve watched on Netflix this week. Recommend a book to us. Show us pics from your walk around the valley. We wanna see you!

Our new, revised opening times are:

Monday – Thursday: CLOSED

Friday: 12.00 — 19.00

Saturday: 12.00 — 18.00

Sunday: 12.00 — 16.30

See you soon.

Click and Collect

Do we have a webshop? No. But is that going to stop us from joining in with all the Click and Collect fun? Absolutely not.

We’re going to be putting together a few boxed-up ideas for your cosy nights in, and all you’ll need to do is order them via email or Direct Message, pre-pay or pay when you come to collect your order. How cool is that?

Stay tuned for more info, we’ll be announcing our first boxes really soon.

Instagram Positivity

We’ll be posting as often as we can on Instagram to keep you up-to-date with all of our latest re-stocks, newly-acquired cans and whatever else we feel like sharing with the world.

We’re trying to make our Instagram a bright spot in the bleak tar-pit that is the Internet at the moment, and we hope it helps to lighten up your feed.

We’ll also be looking into how we can sell using an Instagram shop. This is all new to us, so bear with us while we figure it all out.

Stay safe!

That’s all for now. Stay safe, stay well and lots of love x
