Summertime

So what a summer we have been having –
A heatwave; England putting forward a decent performance in the sportsball; Silverware for our darts team; a brand new font for the cider, a new lager on the T-Bar & a new West Berks hand-pull.

We have had Georgian food, BBQs, Live Music, an Art Installation, book club and some fabulous themed drinks evenings.

But obviously it is not over yet! [Even if the weather breaks] Plus the Autumn is going to Rock.
July 22nd we have a Bourbon-Themed pub quiz organised by local Evan Williams rep and well-known cocktail slinger Josh Homerston
July 29th is Live Music from Leon C with support from Dan O’Farrell
August 11th is our Summer Party with some awesome music from Undying Heads plus unusual and gorgeous drinks.

There is probably more but I’ve forgotten already, but September we definitely have a super gig lined up from Davey Dodds (8th) plus save the dates for our Autumn Beer Festival (20th-23rd).

See you soon

Getting Involved

Its February already; the 6 Nations has started, the Ale Trail has started and we’ve got stacks of music and tastings lined up. – Gigs for the next 5(?) weekends…

But this month there are a couple of new ventures we’d like you to get involved with – a brand new book club and a jam night.
Since we opened we have had a little donation library by the fireplace but we want to extend that into the back room and if we can get you guys together it’d be great to have a monthly book club. If you want an incentive to read something new, or an excuse to meet up with other people who enjoy reading then you should join us on the last monday of the month and help us work out what to do next.
Or if you are a little more musically inclined on the last wednesday of the month, in association with Boogie Wookie, we will have a drop in Jam session. So if you fancy trialling a new band or finding someone to play with or just listening to some local talent pop in and share a few tunes.

We look forward to seeing you
