Wedding at the Old Spot

Thursday morning dawned bright and sunny- Good job too as I had promised the bride good weather!

After a year and a half of planning, Ami and Jason along with family and friends had a lovely October Wedding reception in our Baronial Dining room.

The guests arrived at around 12.30 before setting off in a Vintage Route-Master bus to the Ceremony, and then returned to the pub around 3.30pm, for drinks, dinner and dancing.

The dining room looked lovely, set up in tables of 8's and 10's, and was decorated with Freesias and handmade place names. The couple had spent a lot of time and energy in the attention to detail, and that came across in the goody bags for the children, the table plan mounted on a Map of Cheltenham, the decorated vases/ table numbers and a well planned Playlist of music for the iPod to play throughout dinner.

Belgium Bonanza!

Last week, we hosted a Belgium Evening at the Pub. The menu boasted a choice of Moules cooked Three different ways -A la Creme, Provencal or in A White Wine and Parsley sauce, all served with handcut chips, or a Flemish Venison Stew followed by a choice of Freshly made Waffles with Chocolate sauce, or a Dark Chocolate Mousse.

The event was well attended and many of our customers chose a bottle of Maissel Weisse Beer to extend the Belgium theme even further. Thanks to all who came along and supported the event.
