Reasons to be jolly at the Cricketers
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!
Landlady Jane Joel has just launched a new ‘fish and fizz’ evening at the pub on Thursdays.
She said: “Each week our chefs will be creating a three-course fish-based set-menu which will include a glass of prosecco for £15, £17.50 or £20 for one, two or three courses.
“If you fancy something a bit lighter, our chefs will also be creating a tempura fish platter which will cost £12.50 and that also includes a glass of prosecco.”
As the menu options are made fresh each week with the best fish they can find, the menus will be available each Tuesday evening – visit the website at www.theoldswanpub.co.uk. THE POTTERS
Richard Edwards has a great comedy line up at the pub this evening – and it’s still not too late to grab a ticket.
Erich McElroy will be your MC and John Fothergill is headlining. Gordon Southern is the opening act.
Food is included in the ticket price of £15 which this month will be your choice of blackened cajun swordfish with roasted Mediterranean vegetables, new potatoes and fresh herb dressing or slow roasted confit of duck with spring onion mash, port & orange jus.
To book tickets, call Richard on 01494 726 222.
Fancy testing your mental mettle? Well the Greyhound can provide that opportunity every Monday evening thanks to their fantastic quiz night.
Turn up at 8.15pm, pay your entry fee of £1.50 per person and see just how good your geneeral knowledge really is. And enjoy a great pint or a glass of wine while you’re working the old grey matter. Sounds like a great evening.
Surely one of the most atmospheric pubs in the whole of south Bucks. This beautiful old inn is run by Matthew O’Keeffe who has concentrated on making the pub as welcoming as possible. Cheerful staff and a real historic atmosphere make the Royal Standard a great destination for a pub lunch, a quiet pint or as a watering hole at the end of a bracing walk through the Chilterns.
