Letchworth Is Open For Business And Socialising

18th May 2021 posted in BUYERS

It is great to see so many local businesses re-opening and welcoming customers again. Knowing that bars and restaurants are opened, helping people socialise and get together is a great feeling.

At Country Properties, we know the importance of local businesses, and the sense of community. We are pleased to see local bars and restaurants making the place feel lively again.

The Arena Tavern has an outdoor area

This is a well-known name in the local area, with a rich history. It also has an average score of 4.3 out of 5 on Google reviews. The pub is located at 3, Letchworth Garden City SG6 3BY, and while it re-opened with a limited capacity, it has been warmly received.

Savannah Joyce has been running the pub for more than 10 years, and before that, her father ran the bar over three decades. Savannah spoke to The Comet about the re-opening, saying; “We're excited to be reopening and have lots of our customers booked in already. We just want our customers to be able to come in and have a sense of normality again. It's all about them, because they are the ones that have supported us before and during all of this. The tavern has been run for 30 years as a family business, and our customers create our own little community. We are looking forward to seeing everyone again.”

Crafty's is a fine choice in Letchworth

When it comes to positive reviews, Crafty’s which is a pub and a beer shop, can boast of a score of 4.6 from 170 Google reviews. This is a great return, and it is indicative of the appreciation people have for the venue, located at 15 Leys Ave, Letchworth Garden City SG6 3EA.

According to information provided by the pub, there are live sets taking place throughout May and into June, so if you have missed live music of late, this could be a great place to visit.

The bottle shop element of the venue, which they utilised to offer a delivery service during the lockdown, helped Crafty’s weather the storm better than some venues. However, with the chance to enjoy pints in the outdoor seated area, this is likely to be one of the venues of the summer in Letchworth!

Letchworth BID manager Chris Wilson said: “This is an important time to help support our town centre. Coronavirus has shown people the importance and the connection between shopping local and helping to support the local area. Many of our businesses have been a real lifeline for our community throughout the pandemic, so now we need to do our bit to ensure our shops and independent businesses can recover from this challenging time.”

Chris Wilson also said; “Our independent businesses work really hard because they genuinely love what they do. The customer service that they offer and the way they run their businesses is done with a lot of heart, something you won't find online! Traders need your support now more than ever so please pay them a visit – it will be appreciated, I would encourage everyone to find out what is available on our doorstep and Shop Local, Shop Letchworth.”
