National pub, dining and microbrewery chain, Brewhouse & Kitchen have been confirmed as the new owners of Riverbank Bar which closed suddenly on January 30th.
On January 30th Riverbank Bar and Kitchen announced on its website that it had closed and sold the venue.
Brewhouse & Kitchen will close the ground floor (bar and restaurant) of the venue for extensive refurbishment into a craft beer venue with a microbrewery on show.
No refurbishments are planned to The Gallery but bookings will be honoured.
Adam Perkins, who also owns Tom Browns Brasserie in Gunthorpe said: “We would like to take the opportunity to thank all the staff and customers, old and new, for making it such a special place.
“We’ve had seven wonderful years at the Riverbank but it’s time for us to move on.
“We will look forward to focusing on Tom Browns and spending time with our families.
“It’s really exciting that Brewhouse & Kitchen has chosen our site for its next venture and we wish it all the success.”
Brewhouse & Kitchen has 16 pubs nationwide that also offer Brewery Experience Days and Beer Masterclasses. A microbrewery is part of each venue.
Food ranges from burgers and hot dogs, Sunday lunches, meat based mains and BBQ.
The sale value has not been confirmed.
Although the business offers function provision such as birthdays and other parties, it doesn’t state in any marketing that it provides live music or any of the pop-up party events that were so popular at Riverbank.
