Scarborough’s Mist Ramshill pub and bar set to reopen under new ownership
The Ramshill Pub, on Ramshill Road, South Cliff and the Mist Bar, on St Thomas Street, are reopening under J&S Pub Company.
The Ramshill will reopen on Saturday April 30 and Ramshill’s resident performer Danny Wilde will “go home” for a performance that evening.
Stacey Durham, one of the pub’s co-owners, said: ‘It will be The Ramshill as it is now. It will just be refreshed.
“There’s love in it, it’s not changed or remodeled, it’s just a good cleaning.”
The Ramshill pub has been closed since the height of the coronavirus pandemic.
Stacey added: “We are going to turn it into a traditional pub again. A nice community pub too, and there will be live music every weekend.
“There aren’t many places to eat in Ramshill, so we’ll have coffee and cake. Exactly what you would expect if you walk into a pub.
J&S Pub Company, owned by James and Stacey Durham, will now operate seven pubs in Scarborough, including The Commercial on Falsgrave, The New Lancaster on Sandside and The Nags Head in Scalby.
The second pub they will reopen soon is McGinty’s – formerly Mist bar.
The bar, which is named after Stacey’s son, Connor McGinty, will be turned into a traditional Irish pub.
Stacey said: ‘It’s undergoing a massive refurbishment. We are going to turn it back into a pub rather than a trendy bar. . It will always be open at night, and we will open a little in the afternoon and it will be a cozy and oldie atmosphere. Food will be traditional lunches with an Irish theme.
“It will be Irish. All products will be Irish, beer, whiskey, cocktails will have Irish names.
“I’m so excited about it. We have an Irish pub in Whitby, and I think an Irish pub will bring that traditional, familiar feel.
There will be an open invitation for musicians to play in the pub, provided it matches the theme of the pub. Irish musicians and dancers can turn up and play, whether it’s a midweek jam or evening entertainment, and James and Stacey will also be booking bands and having live music every weekend.
McGinty’s opening was scheduled to take place in Easter week, but due to delays it had to be pushed back. A new date will be announced shortly.
