Buchanan Caves Hotel

Post  2wheelsagain on Wed 02 Dec 2015, 6:52 am

The BCH had its concrete slab poured yesterday. 
It's a huge looking slab so the new joint should be a decent size.

For those who don't know the pub is being rebuilt after a fire a few yrs ago and it's totally funded from public donations. An awesome crowd funding exercise. Why the joint wasn't insured in the first place I don't know. 

We might have to organise something for the grand opening.

I'm waiting the grand reopening too, I'd propped up the bar there quite a few times before it went up in smoke,

It would be a good thing if they've built in accommodation - it was a damn steep stagger up the hill to the motel behind it.

A small point - the town is Buchan  - which led to many a call of "Where's your Buchan ears", well after the Xth schooner, anyway.

Good effort on the community funding.


Oh, organise something and I'll be there like a shot

would it be any good as a national meet location in the future?


or a stop over point the 1st night after PI on the way to Bright?

Would the hotel be operating by then I guess would be the question.

Not sure of the rebuild time lines.
For those of you on the book of faces do a search for Let's Build a Pub for the latest updates.

I messaged them about 20 minutes ago, already got a reply. At this stage they are planning for a April opening
