  • The Ostrich will rise again Tuesday 30 July 2019

    Great news regarding the Ostrich is that for those who may have noticed it being advertised for sale, it has now been removed from the market, and will remain in the possession of one of its long term owners, securing its future as a free of tie pub. The Ostrich will be open up to and throughout the Beer Festival, before temporarily closing the doors for a few days on the bank holiday Monday 26th August, whilst a refurbishment is carried out. The pub will reopen lunchtime on Friday 30th August with a new landlord and landlady. The Ostrich will continue with real ale very much its focus, including the existing varied range of 5 real ales, plus craft beers, together with live music every weekend.
