Coronavirus / Covid-19 Trading Update III


As the situation we’re all in changes so rapidly, we’ve had to adapt and modify our own business model accordingly. As the advice from government is for us all, to as best as possible, stay home and only leave the house if it’s absolutely necessary, we feel it’s only right, and in the best interests of everybody in our community, and for our own safety that we keep the walk in retail side of The Tuppenny closed in a “Lock-Out”, despite the categorisation of off-licences as an “essential service”. So, for the time being, The Tuppenny is a delivery only service (which we have nicknamed “Deliverbrew”).

We are continuing to offer this delivery only service to ensure you have all the essentials you need to survive an extended period home schooling / stuck with your hormonal teenagers / unable to escape the partner you suddenly don’t get on with. But, we are taking things on a day to day basis as advice changes, and are taking as many precautions as possible.

We are only going to be delivering on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday, with orders needing to be with us by 6pm the day before. Every order needs to be made via our new webshop to keep things clearer and more secure (sorry, no more Facebook or Telephone orders). All product is being disinfected as it is packed and staff will be freshly gloved as they pack and for each delivery. We will leave the delivery on your doorstep, knock and back away severl metres to make sure you are home to receive it (although, where else are you going to be?) We think we will be safer than getting your groceries via supermarket home delivery.

Of course, as recommendations change, so will we.

Further news is also coming on the quiz and other things to entertain you as you while away the weeks behind closed doors. We’ve got your backs folks (from a safe distance of course…)

Stay safe and much love,

Team Tuppenny.


Coronavirus / Covid-19 Trading Update II


I am sure many of you just heard the latest announcements from the government. Consequently we will be closing the bar at 6pm tonight, and re-opening as and when we are allowed to. We hope to be able to survive this and ride it out, and come back as soon as we can. In the meantime, please bear a thought for our wonderful staff, who we are trying to look after as best we can.

We are going to continue to operate as a delivery and take away business so you can still get your Lock-Out slice of Tuppenny’ness in your lives – the online shop is on it’s way with an increased selection. In the meantime use or messagenger here on Facebook to get in touch with delivery orders. We will follow this message up with our takeaway plan as soon as we have thought of one….

In the meantime, stay safe, metaphorically hug your loved ones close and WASH YOUR HANDS….

See you on the other side for one hell of a party Team Tuppenny!

P.S., yes, we are aware we spelt public wrong…



Coronavirus / Covid-19 Trading Update

With the advice yesterday afternoon from the PM that the public are being asked to think carefully about how much time they spend in public places like pubs, we feel it’s sensible to reduce our opening hours. As the vast majority of our daytime customers are of an older generation, and therefore a higher risk demographic, as of Tuesday 17th March, we will be opening from 4pm.
We take our responsibility towards public safety really seriously and we’d ask you do the same. Please keep in mind all of the advice we’ve been given and if you feel you need to stay home, please do. If however you would like to come out and spend your time in our bar, there are a few things you could do to help us keep everybody as safe as possible. If you’re able to, could you use contactless payments where possible, and please could you bring your own empties back to the bar? Also please don’t be offended if you see the team handling your empties with disposable gloves. You’ll notice a bit of an upsurge in things being sprayed and wiped (sorry for the lemon fresh scent all over the place!) It mind sound trivial, but some of the ever popular board and table top games will be going away for a little while, you’ve no idea how difficult it is to sanitise Jenga blocks and Connect 4 counters! and again, please bear with us if your waiting at the bar while we wash our hands after wiping down your tables.
We can’t thank you all enough for the messages of support we’ve received recently and we hope to see as many of you as possible in what is quite a challenging time for our fledgling little indie business. To those of you who we won’t see for a while (including co-owner Linda, who is voluntarily isolating after a recent holiday to Spain) we hope it isn’t too long until our paths cross again.
Stay safe, look after yourselves, and each other. Much love, Jamie, Linda, Hayley, Ed and all the rest of Team Tuppenny. X

We Got Jobs!

Bar Vacancy Poster Dec19SMALL

Yes, we need some lovely bar staff to supplement the current batch of legends, both for the Christmas period and beyond that. Hours are mostly evenings and weekends and involve serving customers, stocking the bar and keeping the place looking all spick and span (so over 18’s only we are afraid). Having the right personality, drive and passion for good drinks is more important than bar experience, as we are a bit different to your average bar…)

Chuck us your CV to so we can see what you have done before and know how to get in touch.
