A new sports bar is to open in Trowbridge next Friday September 20 in time for the launch of the Rugby World Cup 2019.

The new Trowbridge Sports Bar will be installed at 46 Castle Street, the former home of the Steak and Lobster Shack which has closed.

The bar will show Sky Sports and BT Sport coverage of games and events across a range of sports.

Plans include two bars on the main floor, as well as a banked TV viewing area around the screens and a downstairs games area, with pool tables and dartboards, with the floor covered in artificial grass.
