Site will be down Thursday night / Friday morning

Our hosting company is moving their servers from London to Manchester overnight on Thursday (much handier for Bar Fringe, but further from the Rake — swings & roundabouts, I guess :)

This means this site will be offline from about 10:30pm on Thursday until some time on Friday; hopefully we should be back by 9am, but there’s always a chance it may take a bit longer than that…

Beer Festival at the Stag’s Head, Westbourne

Apr 10, 2009Apr 12, 2009

The Stag’s Head in Westbourne is having a beer festival over the Easter weekend, starting at about 2 on Good Friday and going through until at least the Sunday evening (and possibly into the Monday if there’s any left!)

There’s a hog roast on Friday evening, and about 15 beers should be on sale — plus hopefully a few ciders, too…

Branch Pub of the Year

The branch’s Pub of the Year is the Duke of Cumberland Arms in Henley.

This country pub has an unspoilt interior, beers (including Langham Hip Hop and Harveys Best) served on gravity, and some original gas lights. The large rolling gardens feature trout pools, and there’s a real log fire in the smoking area!

The food’s pretty good, too: the cod and chips was the approximate size of a whale…
