A little taste of something ‘nouveau’
Pubs have always played an important part in our communities and we’re keen to ensure that tradition continues. Here, some landlords share their latest news. We’ll drink to that!
And don’t forget that the pub hosts an ‘open mic’ session every Sunday night from 7.30-11pm.
You can come and play or just come to enjoy the talents performing live. THE PLOUGH,
This Saturday, why not head down to the Plough for their entertaining ‘Quiz Nite.’ It’s hosted by Stevie C and entry costs just £2 per person with a maximum of six people per team. Great prizes on offer.
The following Saturday, Lisa Mountain and her team are hosting a 60s, 70s and 80s Disco Night – with a bit of karaoke thrown in for good measure. THE SWAN,
We don’t often mention the Swan in this column – which is a great shame because Nigel and Sam Byatt run one of the loveliest pubs in our area – and one renowned for the quality and variety of its real ales. There are regulars like Tribute, Side Pocket for a Toad and Taylor’s Landlord but there are always interesting guest beers making occasional appearances. And they’ve got the Cask Marque to underline that they know how to keep beers in the best condition. Match that with a great wine selection, terrific food and a real friendly atmosphere and what more could you want? THE WHITE
Iain Griffith-Jones and his team have just celebrated their first anniversary since taking over this great old country pub – and they continue to offer one of the warmest welcomes around coupled with fantastic meals and great deals. Pie and a pint night, for example, on a Wednesday features a pint from any one of the beers on tap together with a truly delicious home made pie of your choice for a tenner!
And Iain doesn’t mind that the weather’s started to turn colder. He says: “Come in, enjoy the real fire and leave your troubles outside. Always a warm welcome on a cold day!”
