Join us for Dry January

Dry January NoIn line with many Pubs and Restaurants we are encouraging people to partake in Dry January.  You can qualify by ordering, London Dry Gin, Dry Martini, Dry Cider, Dry White Wine etc or maybe just Fevertree Dry Ginger Ale.

A report by Oxford University, see left, has stated that Dry January (without visiting the pub) could be bad for you.
“Researchers think that drink  may improve social cohesion by triggering endorphins which increase happiness and promote bonding”
