3500 Pints – ‘Returned To Sender’

1 Mins read

One of the North Coast’s oldest pubs is sending back more than 40 kegs ( 3500 pints ) to the brewery as a result of the Covid-19 lockdown because it will not be fit for consumption when business reopens.

Like all pubs all over Northern Ireland, The Queens Arms in Coleraine has been closed ever since the NI Executive ordered businesses to close their doors as part of a nationwide lockdown designed to slow the spread of coronavirus.

The legendary and only town-centre bar is a part of life for so many in the area and a popular stop-off for tourists and visitors from all around the world.

Publican Terence O’Neill said ” We have over 40 kegs of beer unused since lockdown began, which is more than 3500 pints. We are a busy town centre bar and one of the oldest in Coleraine. Of course, we are looking forward to opening our doors however things will be different. Customers will still have the same warm welcome to our pub but like every other business, we will have to introduce social distancing measures. ”

The Queens Arms is known for its daily witty sayings and inspirational quotes which are chalked on an A-Board outside the premises.
