We went to Edinburgh to watch Scotland versus Wales- an atrocious display of rugby by both teams, just that Wales were slightly less worse.
The bear enjoyed himself as did we se him in the photo with the invisible man. Thank you to Jane for running the Inn in our absence- good job.
The ladies went to make sausages at Jesse Smiths in Marlborough. Apparently all the ladies produced recipes that the butcher had never seen before- Marmite with rosemary and prunes, Mango chutney, garlic and chilli etc. See photo.
It was nice to see the book club in the Inn recently.
Pete (who lives at Chris Clarkes old house) and I took part in the Pewsey Terminator - times immaterial- but as you can see from the photo it was really dirty?
Currently 2nd in the league, despite a loss of 1-8 recently.
Next “eyes down” is Friday 11th – Graham is away, so who can take the money?
The draw for the Egg will take place on Sunday 12th at 2.45 just before we show the Calcutta cup (England versus Scotland). The 6 nation burger will be beef burger topped with haggis with chips at £6.95 or £8.95 with a pint of guest beer or medium glass of house wine.
Red nose day Friday 18th March
Quiz about cockney and Australian rhyming slang - a silent quiz! Red cocktails will be on offer and the big screen will be in operation. Due to its close proximity with St. Patricks day we will be offering Guinness at 3.00 per pint, 50 pence going to comic relief. Prize for best fancy dress- Child and Adult
Bookings now being taken for Sunday 3rd of April.
Beer Festival and inaugural Oggy 8 run
Easter and St. Georges day coincide on Saturday 23rd of April.
Beer festival will start on Good Friday 22nd April and will run until after the Royal wedding Fri 29th. (anyone doing anything for the Royal wedding?)
Sunday 24th Oggy 8 run, time and route to be finalised - open to runners, walkers and dog walkers. Angie will be singing in the afternoon and we will be finishing with a BBQ in the evening 6.30 to 8.30 p.m.
I have asked Glenn to produce an awning for the front of the Inn so the smokers can at least keep the rain off when they smoke.
We will be showing the last few games. Who will win the aggregate points competition?
Will be available from 1st of April.
We will opening Sunday evenings for food and drink from 11th of April until Sunday 28th of August.
