Sorry – we are closed

It is with great sadness that we are closing our pub doors in line with the government announcement on 20th March, to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 and preserve the health and wellbeing of the general public, our team members and our customers.

We understand how important pubs are to local communities so we can only apologise to all of those who had plans and bookings to celebrate special occasions and socialise with family and friends. We are hopeful that the pub will resume its role at the heart of the community very soon.

In the meantime, we’d like to thank you for your loyalty and support before and during this difficult time and we look forward to providing our usual warm welcome to all our customers when we’re back open for business!

Please keep in touch and get our updates by visiting our website and following us on Facebook.

Stay safe,

From Susie and all of the team at Hole in t’ Wall, we look forward to seeing you soon!
