Unusually we still have a couple of tables left for Christmas Day, call for more details if your interested.

We have plenty happening in the bar the next few weeks, the ever popular Usual Suspects kick of the entertainment on Friday 18th playing from 9pm-1am. As usual Danny will be presenting our karaoke nights on Sunday’s 20th, 27th and 3rd January.

Always a great lineup of football fixtures over the festive season, they can all be seen under the live sport section. Not much needs to be said about Christmas Eve in The Woodpecker, it’s free entry before 9pm but tickets after that, they go on sale Wednesday only £5, they will be the same price for Hogmanay when the bar will be open till 4am!!

Our New Cocktail


We launched our new cocktail list over the weekend and it went down a storm, it was a great effort from the Barstaff as they made over 100 cocktails at the weekend. As well as old favourites such as Strawberry Daquiri and French Martini new additions Strawberry Bon Bon and Pear Cosmopolitan were very popular. Have a look at our new menu online.
