AN independent Bolton bar forced to close for the third time since March last week is reopening for themed culinary nights after teaming up with local food vendors.

Craig Egan who runs the Nook and Cranny in Bromley Cross has announced it will be back open on Wednesday for bookings only with Sushmasnacks in the building doing Indian Street food.

Bookings are being taken through and each table booking has a £10 fee, this will be deducted from the table bill and is non refundable for no shows.

All tables are for two hours and for one household only.

Customers will be able to have a drink during their booking.

Craig said: “When booking please give all names and please choose from the menu this is so we can plan ahead.

“If successful we will be running similar nights over the coming weeks with more vendors over more nights.”
