Hole in the Wall shuts down

Local venue shuts down

pub shut down

As the double dip recession continues to take its toll, Timepiece’s neighbour, Hole in the Wall has been shut down.

It has come as a huge surprise and loss to many that one of the most popular venues in Exeter was unable to have their 30 year license renewed.


The owners of Hole in the Wall decided not to renew the license because the operation was no longer profitable. Alan Boss an employee of the parent company was however unavailable for comment. 

Their final night, February 25th, was a great success with a huge range of artists, reduced door fee and clearance prices on all the drinks.


Second year Jamie Parish attended the event and called it a great evening. "They went out with a bang. Great music and loads of dirt cheap booze, its a big big shame they are gone"

He added "Exeter has lost an institution in its night scene"

Hole in the Wall's Facebook page has been flooded by messages of sorrow and support. Most people expressed their positive memories of great night they had there .
