A NEW bar in Ross-on-Wye has officially opened for business following a successful launch party.

Tweet Bar and Kitchen has replaced Leonards at 39 on the High Street in Ross-on-Wye, with the new owners having renovated it and introduced a new menu.

The bar hosted a launch party on July 18, with all those involved in the rebrand coming together to celebrate its new look.


Launch party guests enjoyed champagne, canapes and live music while taking in Tweet’s brand-new interior.

A spokesperson for Tweet Bar and Kitchen said: “We wanted something new and fresh – a floral image with gold and blue colours. We have also added to the menu so people can have more of a restaurant experience as well as enjoying the variety of cocktails and the large drinks menu.”

Leonards was opened in 2017 by Darren Leonard, who owns the restaurant No 3, also in Ross-on-Wye. Since the bar first opened in the Grade II listed building on the High Street, it has been a local favourite for premium cocktails and tapas. Mr Leonard sold the bar to the new owners last year.

Mr Leonard said: “It’s great they’ve made it their own. They’ve done an amazing job.”
