The Grapes is a large prominent building located in the centre of Blackburn, just a short walk from King Georges Hall. Recently refurbished externally and internally, there are various seating areas throughout, including cosy booths by the bar area, a stage for entertainment and a pool table. There is a large bar area running along the back wall and a catering kitchen/prep area. Living accommodation consists of 3 bedrooms, lounge, bathroom and office.
Trade at the Grapes comes from regular drinkers during the week, who live locally. On Fridays and Saturdays there is a combination of live entertainment, Karaoke and a DJ. Both Sky and BT Sports are shown and have proved popular with customers. Cask ales have been introduced and are well received.
