Now new landlady Sam Parkinson says: “Speakeasy is a family run free house offering a warm welcome, friendly atmosphere, eclectic music, gin bar, real ale craft beer and cider.”

The bar was briefly run for a few months by the Beer Brothers Brewery which is based in Walton Summit.

Speakeasy will continue to host live music events.
