A York riverside bar has stayed open today, despite floodwater getting inside.
Plonkers Winebar on Cumberland Street is still serving food and drink – but on the first floor only.
And it has asked people to come and support it as “the Ouse won’t leave us be!”
A sign outside the bar, just in front of the overflowing waters from the River Ouse, says: “Plonkers is open. But floody hell, it’s upstairs only service.”
And on the socials the team say: “We’re experiencing minor flooding once again but remain open for food and drinks.
“We need your support in times like these! Come and support us with Plonkers Lager and Wolfpack IPA at £4.”
It comes as York endures the fourth big flood of the autumn and winter. The Ouse reached 4.3m earlier today, and is set to stay around 4m until at least the end of New Year’s Eve.
As the number of storms increase, hospitality businesses prone to flooding are looking at ways to keep going in the adverse conditions.
Earlier this month, YorkMix reported how the flood-hit Tea By The Lock in Naburn was bringing in customers by boat.
