A New Bar

April 11, 2019

Thankyou to Peter for this piece.
A New Bar
A new bar, Tipsy Mercer, has just opened in Ock Street.
A New Bar
It is run by Henrietta and James, ably assisted by Brittany. James has fitted out the bar himself.
A New Bar
The wooden table tops came from Blenheim and he made the supports and wine glass racks from copper central heating tubes! Both floors have been restored in the very fashionable shabby chic style, like the remarkable Wilton Music Hall in London.
A New Bar
It was once Beesley, outfitters and mercers, which is where the name came from. Before cars were popular, they made deliveries in their 1908 De Dion van.
A New Bar
A smart, fashionable addition to Abingdon.

(Apologies to the Tipsy Mercer I did not report this sooner as they have been open for a couple of weeks. The Herald has done a couple of good reports. For more about Beesley’s see The town portal historical people section. )

    Just saw in the Abingdon Herald that Homebase in Abingdon has started its closure. I shall miss it as I go down there for my gardening supplies.

    Yes, I think we many of us saw that in the Abingdon Herald where it also gave the reasons for its closure. They will be much missed.

    I’m not sure what that has to do with the opening of the Tipsy Mercer. Good luck to them. It looks good.
