Well that's the first post I've seen by a pub! It's great to hear it will be in full use soon! thanks.
To all my admirers,
Thank you for your kind words and for taking the time to discuss my wonderful old days and for your concern for my future.
I am very happy to announce that I will be opening my doors once again to all my old and new admirers very soon… date to confirm. This time I will not be used as a PUB. My new venture will be dual purpose; Upper floors will be used as a college and the ground floor will a restaurant and shisha bar…. You will have to visit to find out more about this for yourself.
My new owner has taken very good care of me and given me a new lease of life. He has been trying to get a grant from the city council to renovate me but they have not been very helpful as yet.
I am now Grade 2 listed.
I am the new tenant of the Britannia, and talking about Shisha above, yes I will be opening up a Shisha Bar, Thanks to "Mr. Britannia".
The Smoking Law will not contravene as the Shisha area will be outside and the inside will be used as the Cafe/Restaurant.
Hopefully the opening date will not be too far, I am working on it and trying to keep all the old themes, as its a Grade 2.
I will put more more information in the near future and links to our web-page.
Feel free to ask any questions..
