New Year New…Something

I think I am starting to settle into 2019.
I mean I can’t say I was looking forward to it; dryanuary was trending, brexit is looming and frankly who looks forward to the annual round of insurance quotes.

But actually as usual the year has started with a flurry; a whole load of people want to come and play music or generally entertain each other, people are still making awesome beer and someone wants to feed us pizza.
Fingers crossed our monthly book club and shanty night are looking pretty healthy  and we have had loads of interest in our mixed open mic

It is pretty tough being a small independent outside of the town centre- we don’t have mass purchasing power, we don’t get random shoppers, bad reviews can be make or break but rather we rely on our core regulars [love you guys] , the beer aficionados and people who come to our events.
That said there is something really magical about knowing you are bringing people together and that people are making the effort to come to you.
So thanks all.

 

Season of the Wolf

Autumn. October.  Halloween.
Cakes, Charity, Community – Stoptober?
We think that the pub is a great place to get together whether you choose to drink or not and because of that it is good place to raise money and to meet people.
We raise money for Launchpad, Macmillan & Reading Refugee Support Group all year round but at the moment we are hosting a Bake Off for Macmillan, the next Retro-Game night for Launchpad is booked in and we are asking people to “buy a drink on their round” for RRSG by donating the price of a pint.

Additionally this year we are celebrating Dogs & Wolves so let out your inner beast and join us.
Our Halloween party (Oct 27th) theme is Fur & Fangs; the Travelling Talesman is bringing us his ‘Wolf Bites‘ autumn tour (Oct 31st) and we will also be hosting a Wolfenoot in November. Dress up, listen up & share.
