The Turf in Front Street Consett has gone from strength to strength after being taken over by Ste and Juliette Hall.
Both lovers of good music and supporters of local bands, they have in their short time in the establishment not only provided fantastic free entertainment for a range of ages and tastes, but developed an engaging atmosphere that attracts a plethora of people who enjoy live music.
Every Saturday night is different, from blues to folk, rockabilly to punk and of course rock, there is something for everyone, and the added opportunity to see established and new up and coming talented bands. For those who like to perform themselves, there is a Buskers open mic night on the first Sunday of every month and Karaoke on Thursdays.
In it’s central position the pub which was opened in the 1860’s has long been a favourite meeting place.
Every day, in its comfortable inviting lounge delicious home cooked food is on offer at affordable prices, and a weekly Sunday Lunch menu is available with a takeaway option.
Ste and Juliette have had connections with The Turf for over twenty years and have been loyal patrons. Two of their friends took over the pub in 1995 and another two in 2001, so when the opportunity arose they both agreed that they would be prepared to take the leap of faith and keep the dream alive.
They have certainly done that; and with their resourcefulness, commitment and a whole lot of joie de vivre they have transformed a great old pub into a hive of energy.
For more information check out their website and Facebook page or better still, pop in to see what’s on offer. You will be pleasantly surprised. Real pub, Real people, Real ale.
