3 Months In After The Big Move...

...and what a roller coaster it has been!

It was the first week in May that we finally opened our doors in a stunning new venue. Huge thanks go to all the tradesmen who helped put our bar and shop together, our suppliers old and new (yes, that means lots of new stock; our range is now nearly 150 wines strong!) along with the support from friends, family and customers old and new.

So where to begin??

We have a great new kitchen, for those who remembered our past venue and the cramped little corridor that we created such a spread from out of; well we now have a superb upgrade meaning we have also extended our menu, (our famous Gambas Pil Pil still appear amongst new dishes like Boquerones Crostini, Pitta Pizza, Pitta & Dips, Creamy Garlic & Blue Cheese Mushrooms) along with our capacity. We therefore still offer our great wine & tapas evenings whilst also having the having room for you to wine and dine at your leisure.

We have upgraded our by the glass offering, not only do we have a fabulous selection of wines to choose off our menu, but we have also installed (thanks to a successful Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign) a sparkly new Wine By The Glass machine, which enables us to offer you a taste some of the more exclusive wines in our range and will be updated regularly. As of next week we will be putting a selection of award winning wines, trophy winners from some of the top international wine competitions such as DWWA (Decanter World Wine Awards), IWC (International Wine Challenge) & SWA (Sommelier Wine Awards)

We have staff! Now were in the hub of bustling Longridge and capacity to entertain many more of you, we have been recruiting to make sure our service doesn't falter, and so please meet Joy; our full time manager, her daughter Daisy along with Katie who you will see on Fridays.

What else...

-We have Estrella Galicia Spanish lager on draft
-Midweek lunch specials
-A popular Gin selection
-Look out for Live Music and Open Mic evenings (note to diary; first open mic event 2nd Sunday in September)
-Meet the Winemaker evenings (note to diary; Sergio from El Coto de Imaz, Rioja will be joining us on Thursday 21st September, only 20 tickets will be available, wine tasting with food match)
-Matilda and now her pup Daisy are usually in residence (our adorable Frenchies!)
-Oh and we now have our own bathroom facilities! (visitors to our previous location will know what we mean; especially those who frequented us in the winter!!)

Phew, plenty of reason to come in and say hello over a glass or 2, we'd love to see you again.
Cheers from Andrea, Ben and the team!
