Dear Ladies & Gentlemen,

Unfortunately, I’m afraid to say that we will NOT be opening The Volley for the time being.

Although we have finally had some good news from the Government with Bristol being allowed to go into Tier Two, at this moment in time we can’t make the situation work and we feel we need to wait until January once we know the consequences of the Christmas period, and whether we will return to Tier Three and even another National Lockdown.

We have agonised about this decision for weeks, but we can’t keep opening and shutting The Volley. When we believe the worst is over and hospitality is allowed to return without interuption then I will be delighted to announce that The Volley will be back. But now is not that time.

Many thanks for your support and patience whilst we have dealt with COVID and its repercussions. It has certainly been a tough 9 months and I fear we have a few difficult months ahead whilst the vaccine program is rolled out and confidence returns. But here’s to the future.

Our sister pub, the Nettle & Rye in Clifton is open, so if you are looking for a substantial meal and a cracking drinks list then look no further. They are also taking bookings so please either email [email protected], or please text or ring 07305 950083.

Many thanks and hopefully see you at the Nettle & Rye this weekend and in the run up to Christmas.

Alex, Harry and The Volley Team.
