Meanwhile, in Durham, ‘The Stayin Inn’ pub is a more of a classic beer garden, complete with fairy lights and rustic bar stools.
This bar was built during the Covid-19 lockdown.
Carty said her husband was inspired to create something for her family. With some of them shielding due to the pandemic, going out simply isn’t an option right now.
“My husband, who was furloughed from work, decided to build the bar to enable us to all be together at least in the garden where we could have a socially distanced drink and a catch up.
“The bar has been fundamental in keeping our family together and has kept us all going. It has now become a talking point in our family and our local area and we have already received requests from people who want their very own ‘Staying Inn’.”
