|Bar refurb nearly complete and childrens games room next! - Tuesday, November 15, 2011|
Bar refurb will be completed over the two closed months along with a complete over-haul of the childrens games room.
Work has continued over the summer period with the 'new deal' negociated with Carlsberg UK. This has allowed us to put in Cellar cooling which in turn has enabled us to add a Real Ale (currently Black Sheep), Thatchers Gold Cider (yummy!) and San Miguel along side our more traditional range. Better than that, it should enable us to hold 2011 prices on most products through the 2012 season :-) unless of course the govenment decides to add 10p on a pint in the budget :-(
