Llanelian Telephone Kiosk

Llanellian Telephone BoxLlanelian has a new red Telephone Kiosk; well it’s not quite new and it doesn’t have a telephone in it nor is it a stage prop for Doctor Who.

It is soon to have a Heartsafe AED Public Access Defibrillator installed for the village or for anyone visiting, who may be having a sudden cardiac arrest.

We hope that it is never needed but it is an asset for the village and thanks to all the people who have made it possible.

New Wine List May 2016

Majestic Wines

We are pleased to launch our new 2016-17 wine list.  Again from Majestic Wines, our new list contains twelve of their recent Sommelier Wine Awards winning wines.  We have kept many of your favourites; exchanging just two of the whites; with the reds we have introduced an exciting Chilean Pinot Noir, an improved Fleurie and a lovely Italian wine from Salento.
Some prices have risen slightly due to increased duty and currency variations but we have managed to  keep the gorgeous St Emilion at the bargain price of £19.95 and the Fleurie is reduced to £22.95.  Our House Wines remain, as you all said how good they are but don’t be frightened of venturing higher up the Wine List which brings even greater pleasure.
