A warm welcome Richard and Morwenna – Bearwood’s new golden couple

The Bearwood Blog can exclusively reveal that the new hosts at The Midland real ale bar on Bearwood Road will be Richard Parling and Morwenna Hughes.

Richard is 41 and is very experienced in the licensing trade, having been a manager for the past 17 years during which time he has covered restaurants, bars, nightclubs, and pubs. Morwenna lives locally and will be well known to some through the collections she has helped to organise for Women’s Aid.

Richard told the Bearwood Blog, “I am very excited by the prospect of running the new bar. The Midland has been fully refurbished with many of the original features kept. We will have up to 14 ales and 2 guest ciders available, with reduced prices on selected ales between 10am and 2pm all week, and we will also serve some food such as cobs and snacks.

“I believe this is something that Bearwood needs and want it to be a community based bar, with a strong involvement in local activities.”

With just a couple of weeks to go before The Midland throws open it’s doors for the first time it is certain to attract a lot of interest, and as with all of our local businesses, we wish Richard and Morwenna well and hope their enterprise brings an increased footfall for our other traders!
