The Firebird Brewery Bar Is Open

At long last we can welcome you to our fabulous brewery bar and shop, this time with minimal restrictions. There are still some challenges its true, but we think we’ve got a workable plan to cover them.

For starters you won’t need to book in advance for our bar, and the bar is open Monday to Thursday 9 until 5, Friday 9 until 9, Saturday  11 ’til 4 and Sunday 12 ‘til 4. Tables of larger than 6 are allowed now and while we’ll still be offering table service you can also order from the bar if you prefer.

The brewery shop remains open as its always been: Monday to Thursday 9 until 5, Friday 9 until 6, Saturday 11 until 4 and Sunday 12 ‘til 4.

We will all continue to wear masks when we’re serving you in the shop, or at the bar, and we advise customers to do the same if they are in the shop or ordering at the bar. We respect people have a choice in this matter of course. Customers who have visited us recently can see we have very high standards of ventilation inside, and we’re going to keep it that way.

Staff cover has been a struggle lately (for us and everyone else it seems) so until the Autumn we will not be open on Saturdays after 4.00pm. We’ll look forward to welcoming our food partners and musicians back in the Autumn, and of course our Friday evening food will continue anyway. Each Friday will see different street foods from our partners.

We’ve been busy in the bar and it’s a must see for anyone that hasn’t been yet. The place has a lovely vibe! We’ve also been busy on our gins and wines and we are delighted to announce new lists for both, all from local suppliers!

We are so looking forward to seeing you all strolling in again

Saturday 18th Sept – Bar Open Until 4.00pm only (Drinks Only)
