It is with a very heavy heart that after 16 years of running The Blue Bicycle restaurant, we announce the retirement of the current owners and management from the business.
We have given careful consideration to this difficult decision, following 3 years of tireless effort behind the scenes dealing with the significant structural and cosmetic damage to our buildings caused by the flooding on 26 December 2015.
Ownership of the building remains unchanged, but we are seeking new tenants for the property.
Whilst The Blue Bicycle restaurant remains closed, we are pleased to confirm that we have recently reopened the doors and welcomed guests back to our beautifully restored luxury self-catering apartments in Franklins Yard.
Formerly known as The Blue Rooms @ The Blue Bicycle, we have rebranded as ‘Franklins Apartments’, with a new look logo, website & signage.
A chilled bottle of Champagne and a welcome basket of locally sourced produce such as artisan bread, handmade biscuits and jam, eggs, butter, milk, farmhouse yoghurts, still and sparkling water, premium Gin & Tonic and Whisky is provided as a welcome gift to arriving guests. A selection of tea, coffee and Nespresso pods is also provided with our compliments.
Information, terms & conditions of booking and photographs can be found on our new website, www.franklinsapartments.com
If you would like further information, or would like to make a reservation, please contact us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by telephone on the same number as before 01904 673990.
For customers who are still in receipt of Gift Vouchers and have not yet requested a refund; vouchers in respect of accommodation will be redeemable against reservations made in Franklins Apartments. Guests with restaurant vouchers can claim a refund by contacting us using the above details.
The last date by which we will accept refund requests or bookings using past vouchers is 10 September 2019. After this time, we will not be able to honour any past vouchers or provide any refunds.
May we take this opportunity to thank all our customers & suppliers for their past custom, support, good wishes and patience during an extremely difficult and arduous time for us since 2015.
We very much hope that we can look forward to welcoming you back to Franklins Apartments!
