Rachel and Michael Sanders, the owners of the Bell Inn in Parkham would like to thank everyone for all the texts, messages, calls and help over the last week. Especially to the fire fighters.
Sadly the pub is closed for the immediate future, any updates will be posted here in due course.
New bar at the Allardice Hall - The Inn Over The Road
Since the tragic fire at The Bell Inn some weeks ago the trustees of the Allardice Hall along with Mike and Rachel Sanders from The Bell have been working to create new facilities in the hall for a temporary but comfortable place for locals and visitors to meet for a drink.
The hall licence has been extended for the sale of alcohol and the insurance adjusted. With the help of a grant from Parkham Parish Council and funds from the Allardice Hall the project is nearing completion and will be ready for opening on Friday 28th April. The bar will be open on three evenings a week until the Bell re-opens time and dates may vary to fit in with hall bookings but these will be well advertised.
Opening times and dates are:
Monday 1st 6pm -10.30pm
Wednesday 3rd 6pm -10.30pm
Thursday 4th 6pm -10.30pm
Friday 12th 5pm -11pm
Saturday 13th 5pm -11pm
Sunday 14th 12noon- 4pm
Thursday 18th 6pm-10.30pm
Friday 19th 5pm- 11pm
Saturday 20th 5pm- 11pm
Wednesday 24th 6pm- 10.30pm
Thursday 25th 6pm- 10.30pm

Friday 2nd 5pm- 11pm
Saturday 3rd 5pm- 11pm
Sunday 4th 12noon- 4pm
Saturday 10th 5pm- 11pm

Future dates will be advertised in The Journal, the website, the village notice board and The Pie.
The name of the bar was chosen by Mike and Rachel from a number of suggestions and came from an idea of Emma Beer.
Mike and Rachel (and the trustees of the hall) look forward to welcoming you at The Inn Over The Road.
