Pub of the Year 2015: the Inglenook, Nyetimber

Congratulations to the Inglenook, Nyetimber, on being voted Pub of the Year for 2015.

As well as the regular London Pride and Young’s Special, the pub has several guest beers, including some strong ones that are unusual for the area. (If you overindulge, accommodation is also available!)

They also have a pub cat, who is on the mend after a recent car accident, and a pub parrot — an unusual feature!

Congratulations to Tony, Edna, Garry and their staff.

UPDATE: The award will be presented at 2pm on Saturday, March 14.

Gribble Inn update

Restoration work has finally started at the Gribble Inn in Oving after a great deal of hassle for Simon and Nikki. The estimated completion date is the end of February 2015.

In the meantime, the Gribble Brewery Tap will be open in the old skittle alley on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. Opening time is 12:00 on all three days, with Friday closing at 22:30 and Saturday and Sunday closing at 18:00.

The beer list will necessarily be a bit more restricted than it was in the pub, but at least you’ll be able to drink it!

Please do pop in if you can.
