New Music Venue Shows It’s Support to Hospitality Workers in Southwater

Having heard the recent closure of a neighbouring restaurant, Albert’s Shed has put out a helping hand to Coal Bar and Grill employees in Southwater. 

Since its opening in November 2019, Albert’s Shed Southwater has been the go-to place to visit in Telford town centre, driving up footfall as music lovers flocked to the bar in search of the best local and national talent. The venue is now looking to expand its offering with a food menu, offering something altogether different from what’s available in the area.

David Gregg, Managing Director at Albert’s Shed Southwater said “January is generally a quiet period for the hospitality trade and can be a devastating time of year to lose your job. While we can send our best wishes to those affected, we hope we can offer something more than just good thoughts. So we’ve spoken to the management at Coal Bar and Grill who’ve promised to pass on the message that Albert is now recruiting for Kitchen and Front of House staff for 2020”.

Already employing over 50 staff in Shropshire, Albert’s Shed now aims to build on its reputation for nurturing creativity not just in the entertainment business but also in the kitchen, providing more work opportunities for people in the area. David Gregg goes further to state “we’re not looking to compete with the other local restaurants in the area, what we’ll be offering is something unique to Southwater but from what we hear, people are crying out for”.
