Family takes over at Morecambe seafront pub

Hannah, Matt and Luke Thistlethwaite

A well-known local family is taking over one of Morecambe's seafront pubs.

Siblings Matt, Hannah and Luke Thistlethwaite are the new management at Harry's Bar on Marine Road Central.

They will be reopening the pub on the Easter weekend.

Hannah will run the bar, Luke will be the chef and Matt will be organising the live entertainment.

Matt is known locally as a dance music DJ who has performed in Ibiza and at local events including Highest Point Festival at Williamson Park in Lancaster.

He also runs entertainment company Escape Events which puts on dance music events at venues including the Morecambe Winter Gardens.

Matt has also previously DJd at Harry's Bar, including as part of Morecambe Music Festival (see photo above by Mike Jackson).

"We’re looking forward to bringing you a great family run service," said the Thistlethwaite family, on the Harry's Bar Facebook page.

"Live music with bands, singers and live DJs running all through the spring and summer.

"Big things coming this year at Morecambe’s favourite venue on the seafront.

"We look forward to seeing you all for a few pints and get some spectacular food, including some fantastic fish and chips and specials from our new chef Luke Thistlethwaite.

"Your bar team will be brought to you by Hannah and your entertainment schedule brought to you by Matt.

"Loads to do in less than two weeks but we’re up for the challenge."

Harry's Bar opened in 2018.

The building was previously home to an Indian restaurant, and prior to that it was Fletcher's restaurant and Barry's Cafe for many years.
