The Kelham Island bar and café has announced it has ‘ceased trading’

Reports by ‘This is Kelham’ yesterday that The Gatehouse in Kelham Island had closed have today been confirmed by the café, as they took to Facebook to announce ‘We are very sad to announce that the Gatehouse at Kelham Island has ceased trading.’


The statement continued: “The Gatehouse has run at a loss over the past twelve months which we have supported it through financially.



“In the past six months increased competition in Kelham Island has made any prospect of the venue becoming financially viable impossible. We’d like to thank the customers who have supported us over the past eighteen months but more importantly the staff who have been so committed.”


The independent café bar and restaurant opened in January 2018, in the mouth of Little Kelham on Alma Street.
