Our lockdown story: The Disappearing Chin

“The Chin turned one at Easter, we had planned lots of celebrations that couldn’t materialise but our incredible regulars arranged a virtual celebration for us which was incredible.”

“The Disappearing Chin took the decision to close fully just before the government announced bars and pubs to close. We enjoyed wonderful support from the best customers who practically drunk the bar dry! 

We live with and care for Han’s 89 year old grandparents so we have been very cautious during lockdown to shield them and limit our contact with the outside world. The Chin turned one at Easter, we had planned lots of celebrations that couldn’t materialise but our incredible regulars arranged a virtual celebration for us which was incredible. Unfortunately the very next day some chump decided to kick through our door during their “daily exercise”. 

Whilst we’ve been away we’ve given the bar a lick of paint and have developed a website, ready to launch our collection and delivery service when other shops open in mid June. We are so excited to get back to it, to be swimming in delicious beers, mixing exotic cocktails and delivering you bottles of vino for all your socially distanced pleasure. Check out our social media for updates on the launch and our website, you can order to collect, selecting an allotted pick up time or can chose to have us deliver in the evening.
We cannot wait to see you all!!
