The venue in Berry Lane will be available for hire for parties as well as smaller tables for what they describe as a “photogenic feast”.
Posting on their Facebook page, owners Catherine and Paul said: “We are thrilled to announce the upcoming launch of Mrs Sippy.
“A brand new bar and dining experience for Longridge. Having moved back to the UK from Sydney for family reasons, we had been searching since our arrival for the right location to launch our new business…and when we saw the “Bar For Rent” sign going up in the window at 60-62 Berry Lane (the old Bartley’s Bar), we knew we had found our place.
“Proudly independent and living locally, we are continuing the commitment, confidence and investment into Longridge as so many other small businesses have done so well. Currently we’re in the midst of a complete renovation, using all local trades, who are already blowing our mind with their commitment and skill to bring our vision to life in a very tight timeframe.”
The owners have taken inspiration from their life in Sydney when it comes to the decor as they have used a “palette of soft warm tones and textures”.

They said: “As an all seated venue, we’ve made sure there is plenty of choice from cosy tables for two, high bar tables that can accommodate small groups, plus one large pre bookable table that seats a group of eight.
“The bar itself is the main spectacle with seating placed along it to allow customers to get up close to the bar tenders at work shaking cocktails whilst they enjoy a bite from the menu. Sydney is a melting pot of cultures, so the food and drinks served at Mrs Sippy will also be a reflection of that.
“Our customers can expect to enjoy a selection of delicious dishes from around the globe, packed full of flavour. Perfect to try more than one! Along with cocktails there will also be a wide selection of wines, bubbles, beers and sprits.”
Private hires will be available for those who want the space to themselves or for a special event.
Mrs Sippy is also currently hiring for a selection of roles including front of house, bar staff, mixologists, chef de partie and kitchen assistants.
