Did you know we are celebrating a mega five decades of Andy running the Bowgie this year. Seriously, 50 years and you can still find him pulling pints behind the bar – hats off to you boss.
This is what the last five decades of the Bowgie have looked like:
The 70s: live rock n’ roll music, late nights and fancy dress parties when “you couldn’t see the dance floor as it was full of people in costumes”.
The 80s: Leading the way with house music nights, grunge nights and big name DJ’s – so legendary they still talk about them today.
The 90s: As late night venues sprung up all over Newquay, the Bowgie moved with the times and focused on special events with the best view in Cornwall, it’s a match made in heaven.
The early noughties: Many weddings, birthdays and special occasions were celebrated overlooking the bay, check out those noughties outfits!
The tens: This decade saw the Bowgie’s biggest change. With an eco conscious total refurb it transformed from the pink pub of yesteryear to the light airy space it is today.
We can’t believe it’s been 50 years! Time really does fly.
We want to say a special thank you to all the customers who have stuck with us over the years. Hospitality isn’t the easiest ride and we want to thank you for your support. We love seeing the terrace full in the summer months and we can’t wait to see all our visitors soaking up the Cornish sunshine this year.
With Andy, Sally and now Tish running the show, you can be sure you will be met with the same warm smiles and welcoming chat when you walk through the front doors of the Bowgie as you would have in 1973!
Cheers to 50 more years!
Love Team Bowgie x
