“It is with great sadness that Ben’s Wine & Tapas is closing its doors on Saturday 20th May. We’ll be reopening for the ‘Taste of Devon’ English wine evening on 7th June but the 20th will be our last day of normal trading.
This has been a difficult decision, however, over the past three years, we have faced incredible on-going difficulty with staffing with no foreseeable end. Fortunately, the shops are doing well but for the last few months, keeping the bar open has meant robbing Peter to pay Paul and means that keeping the bar open is now no longer feasible. We are in the fortunate position where we are able to offer our current team roles in other parts of the business.
We would like to take this time to thank everyone; our wonderful staff, suppliers, customers and the people of Totnes, for helping make the bar such a great place over the last six years.
Without you, Ben’s Wine & Tapas could not have been as successful as it was.
It’s been an experience but all good things come to an end.
It really has been a pleasure,
Ben & Harry”
