Brit moves English pub lock, stick and beer kegs to Germany to introduce the locals to a traditional English drunkard (well, if their lock ends anyway)
- The New Crown in Bridlington was uprooted and transferred to Germany
- The developer would like to introduce Iserlohn a traditional English pub
- The pub is slated to open in the country after the second lockdown is lifted
A British pub was dismantled and moved to Germany to introduce a traditional English drunkard to the locals.
The New Crown's lock, storage and beer barrels were relocated from Bridlington in east Yorkshire to Iserlohn near the German city of Dortmund, where they will be rebuilt bit by bit.
English, German and Irish beer is served in the house alongside full English breakfast, Sunday roast and traditional fish and chips.

During the process, the bar equipment and furnishings were purchased from real estate developer Paul Moss, who lived in Germany for 25 years and had the vision of relocating the bar. Above is the old location of the Crown in Bridlington

The bars here are modern and clean. I missed the atmosphere of an English pub. But there couldn't be halves, ”Moss told The Sun.
“We took everything – even dirty glasses. We're almost there now.
"The last thing will be the old front doors."
Work on rebuilding the pub began after the first German lockdown ended in July and is hoping to open to customers after the country's second lockdown ends.
In an interview with Bridlington Free Press, Moss said: “Iserholm is about half an hour from Dortmund in the Ruhr area. We received a lot of positive feedback on the pub on Facebook, both from locals and the British, as they followed our progress.
& # 39; We were supposed to be opening soon but due to a lockdown, similar to the one in England, we haven't been able to welcome the public yet
"The lockdown restrictions will run until early December and we hope to be able to open them after the restrictions are lifted."
