Historic Bristol pub could reopen if couple win their bid to take it over
A Bristol couple have launched a crowd funder to reopen the last pub left in Barton Hill, after its closure three years ago. The Rhubarb Tavern has been the centre of a local campaign since 2021, which has been supported by CAMRA and resulted in an initial planning application to convert the pub into flats being withdrawn in 2022.
Tara Clerkin Trio share fundraiser to open music pub venue in Bristol
Tara Clerkin and Sunny Paradisos – from Tara Clerkin Trio – are raising funds to secure the future of Bristol pub The Rhubarb Tavern, which is in Barton Hill and was the last remaining pub in the area until it shut in 2020. The building has been saved from developers thanks to efforts from a group of regulars at the pub who started up the “We <3 The Rhubarb Tavern” group, working to get the building protected status. Now, “with their blessing”, Clerkin and Paradisos are hoping to take on the pub, re-opening it as a community space.
