This was a purely seasonal bar that opened in the Western Docks to accompany the seasonal ice-rink and was only open for the Christmas period 2016 to January 2017.

Festive skaters and shoppers will now be able to quench their thirst in style.

A “COOL and contemporary” pop-up bar will be joining the ice rink when it arrives in Dover this festive season.

Fresh from a summer run on Folkestone’s new "Harbour Arm," Cockles & Co. are coming to Dover’s Western Docks, setting out their winter stall with a popup bar at the Western Docks.

The ice rink will be in the Old Marine Station from Monday until January 2 and the pop-up will be alongside it, offering a wide selection of refreshments to thirsty skaters.

Champagne.

Curious craft beers, champagne and prize-winning Kentish Chapel Down wines will be on offer alongside mulled, spiced Kentish cider, Time and Tide ales and locally raised beef, game and vegetarian pies.

Seasonal weekend specialties will include native oysters and Chapel Down fizz, roasted chestnuts and stout, deviled Dover sprats and flint dry white wine.

The “industrial style” bar will also be giving people the opportunity to host their Christmas parties right by the ice rink.

Alongside the new bar and the ice rink, a traditional English Christmas market will open every Friday, Saturday and Sunday from November 19 and then every day from December 19 to Christmas Eve.

Father Christmas will also be on hand to greet children from his Marine Station Grotto, assisted by two friendly elves.
