Alkmaar Cafe at the Boater

5 October, 2022 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm


Dear Members and friends of Bath-Alkmaar Twinning,
As some of you may have seen in the local media, last Wednesday morning, in the early hours, a major fire engulfed the top floors of The Rising Sun, the pub which has been the home of our Alkmaar Cafe for some five years.
Fortunately no-one was injured, but sadly the building itself has been severely damaged by both fire and water, and has now closed.
This tragic news means we have enjoyed our last evening there for some time, quite possibly for ever; and certainly our last with Landlord and Landlady, Norman and Loraine, who were moving on to pastures new in the New Year anyway.  I shall be writing on behalf of BATA to offer condolences and thank them and their staff for all their support and good humour over the years.
We have therefore had to cancel our planned ‘October 8th – Ontzet’ supper, and refunds have been issued to those who have so far bought tickets.
We will still meet on October 5th, from 6.30, but in The Boater pub round the corner from The Rising Sun at 9 Argyle St, Bathwick, Bath BA2 4BQ, where we can raise a glass to our former ‘home’.
