Ladywell Tavern reborn

After Jam Circus, Smiles, Meze Mangal and the Honor Oak, the Ladywell Tavern completes a month of comebacks. The Ladywell Village Improvement Group reports that:

The licensee-to-be of the Ladywell Tavern yesterday confirmed his intention that the pub will re-open on either 13 or 14 December, probably with live music and certainly with a party atmosphere.

cant move for green shhots at the moment. @lateknights say they have finally secured a license and will be starting building work with a view of opening their bar in the ex Mr Lawrences off licence early '14.

Will be great to see the Tavern back in business, good news! Now all that is needed is someone to take over El's.

Also good if someone bought the 'snack bar' which hasnt served a snack since about 1972, or move the 2 pristine new benches that face onto its dingy closed shutters. Perhaps I'm asking for too much...

Anybody know anything about the new licensee, or their plans for the pub?

I understand that the landlord will still be Monty

I hope that's correct. I liked the Ladywell Tavern, but it did need a spruce up. Same as before but with a refurb will be great.

Great news, very excited to head over for the opening, can't wait to have a local pub, here's hoping it's cosy, full of character, good food and drinks!

that's excellent news! i've missed the ladywell tavern. the decor was a bit tired and needed a spruce, especially the cracked leather sofas, but the food was always really good. i hope the same chef team will still be there. i also hope that they pay a chimney sweep to clear the chimney as i always came home smelling of bonfires after a night in there... fingers crossed for a new el's kitchen owner asap.

El is not short on offers at all so hopefully the new owner will open soon!
Also, I saw the Snack bar shutters half-open for the fist time last night, with lights inside etc... so hopefully there will be some movement there too!

The Ladywell Tavern will be reopening on Friday the 13th December with Live music and burlesque on the opening night. I am the Curator of The Misty Moon Gallery and I am the new licensee and my team has helped to reinvent The Ladywell Tavern. Monty is still around in a consultant capacity. The walls in the pub will be used for gallery space, as an extension to the gallery and there will also be a stage for the bands, we will be having open mic on Sundays, poetry and spoken word evenings and comedy. The Misty Moon Gallery will still be holding exhibitions and the critically acclaimed "An Evening With....." nights. We have Brian Murphy aka George Roper from "George & Mildred" on Saturday the 21st December, Nicola Bryant aka Peri Brown from Doctor Who in the 19th January and Hollywood lgend Sarah Douglas aka Ursa from Superman 2 on the 25th January. So please come along and support us on Friday the 13th from 5pm.
If anyone would be interested in wall space in the pub please contact Stuart on stuart@mistymoon.net
