The Everards brewer will be at the Windsor castle on Monday the 10th of November from 7.30pm to teach you all about their beers and, more importantly, let you sample them. We will have on our usual Everards Tiger and Everards will be a selection of their other beers. If you are interested in coming send us an e-mail or pop in and pick up a ticket.

For the Christmas season we will have five 'Real Ales'on tap:
London Pride, Timothy Taylor, Everards Tiger, Bishops finger and Fullers London Porter A FEAST OF BEERS.

Our thanks giving and Christmas menu starts this Tuesday the 11th of November, so switch to our menu page to see details and e-mail us for any bookings or questions.

Just have to say what a great result in the American election, not because I know that much about Obama or dislike MCcain; it is just that it feels good to see a minority people fight there way to the top after so few years. Who could say, hand on heart, that this would be possible here, I do not think so and what is worse where are the candidates and role models

Hope to see you all on Monday

It has been a couple of months since I updated this Blog and in Stock Market values 'one hell of a downward spiral'. However life has to go on and the odd drink or two can help to put things in perspective [Yes it is really that bad!] Publicans, like taxi drivers, are always complaining and sometimes resort to Clich├ęd homespun Philosophy so here I go:

I was listening to Jools Holland the other day [ a sure sign of getting old or why else would you be in at 11pm on a Friday evening] when Seasick Steve performed his new single ' I started out with nothing and I still got most of it left' .... it makes you think of what is most important in your life and that it is much harder to lose the important things in life as opposed to the material things that we tend to get attached to and give unwarranted time to.

Enough of that

New friends in the Windsor so a welcome to all the 2010 and to Rikki you let me get run down by a rickshaw. To Stella Happy Birthday to Eliza Happy Birthday.

New Menu at the Windsor and New wines...... and a nice picture of a Goat for no other reason than 'its a nice goat'

Friends and weddings, where would you be without them!

Monday, 21 July 2008

Another year over [academically speaking] it was a busy few weeks saying goodbye to friends from the class of 2008, proud parents got happily drunk as their 'children' graduated, we wish them all well with their chosen futures. I do not like to single out people for thanks but I will make one or two exceptions this time:

  • Tim's Dad for getting me and Tim drunk on the Thursday night

  • Fred for smashing Karim's record, never thought I would be saying that, well done!

  • Courtenay for looking after me when I was having a glass or two on my Birthday

  • Kimberley for singing to me in the style of Marilyn Monroe

Gonna miss you all!

Roll on September with the return of the 2009's and the new 2010's

Sometimes it feels that life is just slipping away

Tiger for June


Just back from a wonderful 3 days wine tasting in Chianti, Jackie and I had a great time with Pina Bello from Michael Druitt wines. We will be adding some fantastic new wines from the Autumn and we will be looking forward to announcing a wine tasting evening with John Matta from Castello Vicchiomaggio, who is producing some fantactic super tuscans from his estate in Greve in Chianti. The Estate is worth a visit, look it up on it is even better in real life; and John is a great host.

Back in the real world, we will be hosting 'Everards Tiger' as our Guest ale for June and July so pop in for a refreshing championship winning ale.

Summer Soft ball and Touch Rugby

The sun has bought out the teams for the touch Rugby and soft ball tournaments. Matt Beasley is setting up a 'free beer scheme' for the Tuesday night matches, So after working up a sweat in Regents Park [or just to escape the rain] try to hook up with Matt outside the pub and get on the scheme.

I want one of these Dalek hats, can anyone let me know when they are on sale, I tried one on for the publicity shots but they would not let me keep it; It is a must have summer item.
