Our Bar

Welcome to the “Dolly Blue” Bar & Grill! Our stylish Bar.


Aptly named after the infamous “blue bags” that were manufactured here until 1982 in this very building. The Ultramarine or “Dolly Blue” as it became fondly known as was a revolutionary product for laundries to bring that “whiter than white” look into their customers laundry!

Owing to its riverside frontage, a major refurbishment of this area took place and the bar became the new “Dolly Blue Bar & Grill”. It has been designed to provide an informal family environment whilst still offering an award winning level of food and service. Sink into the modern red and brown leather sofas, or weather permitting sit on the exterior terrace right by the waters edge.

In the evenings experience the unique mood lighting and enjoy a superb selection of wines, beers and spirits as you overlook the river. There is a comprehensive menu available as well as a children´s menu. Guests and local residents find a visit to “Dolly Blue” a memorable experience.
