I know the owner really well and actually helped with some of the shopfitting. The bar being where it is annoys the owner as much as anyone else, but we built it that way out of necessity. It can't be any further back towards the rear wall because of where the cellar head is. We already had to make modifications to the original cellar door (which is in the middle of the floor), and where it opens now would be a health hazard if it weren't for the bar protecting it - the bar essentially wraps around the cellar opening, stopping people from falling in. It's quite funny when you are in there and a member of staff comes out of the cellar because it's as if they are magically appearing from seemingly nowhere.
Stuff on the walls and soft furnishings will be coming, as well as more shelves for beer around the walls, and the whole of the back bar. The owner just wanted to get open, so all that polishing will come with time...
