Hello everyone – It’s been a while since our last post, and a lot’s been going on outside and in. Just to note firstly: the pub will be closed Wednesday 16th and Thursday 17th this week while we strip and varnish the floors in the cocktail bar and restaurant. We can’t wait to lift those old carpets and spruce up the lovely floorboards! With the dust and noise though the doors will be shut. Open again on Friday.
You’ll have seen the fantastic job Jonny Yates and David Budd have done on the exterior painting. What a transformation! A huge thanks to Jonny and David. We’ll post some photos once the signwriter has been in this week and completed the gable-end lettering, and we’ve got our lovely new signs to hang from the corner and above the South Loan entrance.
Next up – the beer garden! We’ve been busy tidying it all up after Jock’s grand job of “deforesting” the whole space. The tables are in, parasols are fitted, and some lovely warm blankets are due to arrive this week to keep you warm! All being well, the beer garden will be open this weekend.
“When’s the food starting?” we hear you all ask! You might have heard us describing the hoops we’ve been jumping through on gas and electricity supply. That’s held things up no end. But we’re happy to say we think we’ve got it sorted at last. The kitchen is now ordered and we’re planning to dish up some tasty bites fairly soon – should be later in June. Watch this space – we’ll definitely keep you posted on this one.
That’s about it for now. Thanks to all our regulars and new visitors, and especially to those who’ve popped in for the first time in a wee while. It’s great to see you all.
See you soon.
