About Riffs Bar
Where else can you pop down your local and bump into Deborah Bonham (John's sister (Led Zeppelin)), Rick Buckler (The JAM), Dave Gregory (XTC) and a host of local, national and International stars?
The Publican Awards UK MUSIC PUB OF THE YEAR 2005, 2006 & 2010 In a highly competitive category, Riff's Bar emerged as the winner of the Music Pub of the Year. The fact that Riff's Bar has won this award is testament to the passion, devotion and dedication of it's licencees, Theresa (Tiggy) York and Andy Pett, seemingly against all the odds. They have managed to carve out a niche reputation not only through their clientele but also among the music community. A measure of this can be garnered by the fact that Deborah Bonham - the sister of Led Zeppelin's late drummer, John - was so struck by Riff's when she first played there that she said "If I sell a million albums, I'm still coming back to Riff's" With a great selection of Beers, Spirits, Cask Conditioned Ales and some great food at very reasonable prices, you can't afford not to come.
The interior of Riff's Bar is a rocker's paradise with
incredible wall murals painted by Tiggy (The Landlady) and her brother Mike
depicting musical icons of yesteryear such as Jimi Hendrix, John Lennon, Queen
and Janis Joplin.
We pride ourselves on providing a warm friendly atmosphere for both the Audience and the performing artists.RIFFS BAR LOGO & Website Caricatures created by BILLY BEAUMONT http://www.billybeaumont.com/
