The Bear and Lace was opened in 2015 in the site of the previous Chambers Pub on Maid Marian Way. It was touted as a high end Champagne bar. I’d not personally heard about it until last year when a colleague said she was holding her engagement party there. I then booked it for the department office Christmas party on Friday the 16th of December 2016. I’ve also had my leaving do there yesterday evening (Friday the 6th of January 2017). As I have 2 separate events there I shall write this in 2 sections.
