Not Used: Unfortunately Lowry's Bar is Still Closed

Unfortunately we have taken the tough decision to temporarily close our doors.

To safeguard our community, staff and customers during this time, and in line with government advice, we’ve decided to close our doors for the next while.

We will reopen as soon as we can do it safely, and as soon as we have a date for reopening, we will let you know. So in the meantime, stay safe and we will see you soon.
