Shardlow's Top Music Venue & Marina Bar


We are sorry to say that, in line with the Government’s request, we are now temporarily closed. We do not know how long these measures will last, but when the time comes, we will all be ready, waiting and excited to see you.

We hope it won’t be too long – so please do keep an eye on our Facebook page and check back here for the latest updates. 

We wish all of our customers, and their families, good health in these unprecedented times. 

If you have any concerns or questions on this matter, please contact us here

COVID-19 Working Procedures and Regulations

We’ve been really looking forward to opening our doors again in line with the current government guidelines.
Things may look a bit different for a while as our main priority is keeping you all safe, so please bear with us.
There will be a few new rules we all need to follow:
    • There will be a one way system in place to enter the bar
    • You will need to remain seated when inside the bar, a member of staff will be available to take your order
    • Outside you can order at your table via our website (click here) or choose to join the one way system
    • Please do not move any tables (both outside and in)
    • Take care when using the toilets, noting the maximum capacity signs at any one time
    • Ensure you wash your hands after using the toilets and use the hand sanitisers throughout the bar frequently
    • Dogs must be kept on a lead and under control at all times both outside and within the bar
    • Children must be over 12 years old to be seated inside the bar, apart from using the toilets when accompanied by a responsible adult
We are sad that we’ve had to take these steps, hopefully only temporary. 
You may notice we have used the lockdown closure to completely revamp the bar to make it more welcoming, so let’s enjoy it together and all keep safe. 
We plan to reopen the kitchen very soon, in the meantime there will be a barbecue at busy times to keep you going when you feel hungry….
