Meet The Brewer – Howling Hops
Friday 7th June
Our first Meet The Brewer night was hosted by Hackney’s Howling Hops. They brought something for everyone with their eight Tap Takeover - from dinner and pudding ales, to lager and sour beers. They even kept the ‘cask v keg’ discussion alive by bringing their Pale XX on both! Chef added in some interesting food pairings to truly treat the taste buds.
Next one is being planned…watch this space..
Little Taverner’s Club
Thursday 30th May 2019
Creative Biscuit returned to host our second Little Taverner’s club that saw our little locals getting creative and parents enjoying the new lunch menu (with two hands!). We saw some beautiful plates and mugs painted, and some very cute baby footprints!
Bank Hol Beats
Saturday 25th May
Following the love for our Beers from The Borough DJ, @tomduvalmusic returned to ease us into the next Bank Holiday weekend with some Soulful Funk. As he describes, ‘Soulful, Groovy and packed with Funk’. Playing out in the garden, he set us up perfectly for the long weekend, playing an amazing 6 hour set that took us from the afternoon into the night. There were some good garden vibes that night!
Beers from the Borough
Saturday 4th May 2019
We were so excited to host our first ever Craft Beer Festival. As part of Waltham Forest London Borough of Culture 2019, we featured Waltham Forest only breweries – WildCard, Pretty Decent, Signature, East London Brewing, Neckstamper, Pillars and Nirvana. It was a real celebration of local beer. We opened the garden for the first time, had the BBQ going and a DJ playing. Of course, being a Bank Holiday weekend, we saw four seasons in a day – which just made the vibe even better – seeing locals pitching in to hold up the Gazebo in a downpour and the pub heaving!
Thurs 11th & Thurs 18th April 2019
Over Easter, we held our first ever Little Taverner’s clubs. We kicked things off high tempo with JingleBop - a fun, interactive music and movement group for parents and babies/toddlers. Next we moved onto our very first craft club, hosted by ‘Imagine & Create’ - individual and group crafts for children. And finally, local ceramics café, Creative Biscuit, rounded off the holidays with an Easter themed ceramics painting session.
March 30th 2019
We felt our local Mums deserved a whole weekend! So we put on a special Afternoon tea on the Saturday, as well as Sunday family roasts. Served in The Woodhouse room, we followed a classic menu of homemade delights, including dainty finger sandwiches, sweet pastries and scones with clotted cream and jam.
