The MonumenT owners have created a secret new Oasis area as they look forward to reopening. 

Llandlord Martin Rowe has created a new ‘Oasis’ beer garden area at the back of his pub, converting the former yard to add tables, plants and artificial grass. He also also introduced a new ‘Bistro’ seating area at the front. 

He said: “Things are going fantastic. We are making really big changes here, with our new beer garden, our new bistro area, new opening times – literally huge changes.

“We are proud to present our little ‘Bistro area’ that we have made so that when we open customers will be able to enjoy a coffee, tea or alcoholic beverage whilst watching the world go by. The Bistro Area will be open from 10am until 9pm every day. 

“After I had recovered from the news about lockdown I set about making the pub something people couldn’t wait to come back to, with something quality and new – so I created ‘The Oasis’ @ The MonumenT pub also a new little bistro area to the front, plus a  new smoking shelter and smoking area.

“I am looking forward to greeting all our regulars back, many of whom I’ve kept in touch with via either social media or telephone.

“This transformation, the outside space, is exactly reflected in what we have called it.. The Oasis.. you just would not expect to stumble into it in a town centre pub.”
