Music Night

Now we’re starting to open up properly – not long to wait now – we’ve decided to do more music nights. So this Friday (July 16th 2021) we’re hosting “An Evening with Matt Jacques and Chris Goulding”.

For more info go to @that_matt_chap and @chipped_box.

They’ll be on from about 8pm until late… each doing a solo set, then a combined one to finish off.

We don’t know what they’ll be playing, but it’ll be great anyway.

New Cocktails

We’ve just added Margarita and Mojito to our ever growing list of cocktails. These are available to buy in our Shop. As usual we sell them in “pouches” of 2 cocktails and include all the trimmings & extras you need – apart from the ice – which you’ll have to provide ;o)

They’re both pretty much what you’d expect – we’ve not strayed from the traditional with these two.


A margarita is a Mexican cocktail consisting of tequila, orange liqueur, and lime juice often served with salt on the rim of the glass. The drink is served shaken with ice, blended with ice, or without ice

Ingredients: Tequila, Cointreau, lime juice

Extras supplied: lime slices

To Serve: shake the pouch and pour over ice. Top with a couple of the lime slices.


Mojito is a traditional Cuban highball. The cocktail often consists of five ingredients: white rum, sugar, lime juice, soda water, and mint. Its combination of sweetness, citrus, and herbaceous mint flavours is intended to complement the rum, and has made the mojito a popular summer drink

Ingredients: White rum, soda water, lime, mint

Extras supplied: lime slices, fresh mint

To Serve: shake the pouch and pour over ice. Top with a couple of the lime slices and mint leaves.

Enjoy :o) xx

Father’s Day

Well it’s been an interesting couple of days! The takeaway service has been going so well we ran out of flagons for the draught beer. I managed to source some more on Thursday – for delivery today (Saturday). But the supplier was expecting DPD Local to deliver – they don’t do Saturdays. Which meant I had to go up to the DPD depot at Denton this morning & hope they’d arrived!! Thankfully they were there – so panic over.

But… when I got back to the bar we found we had just enough draught beer to supply the orders for Father’s Day. If we received any more we’d be knackered! One of the great features of being a new bar – we don’t know how much we’re going to sell!!

It’s not easy to find a draught beer supplier on a Saturday. But, shout out to Chris at Torrside Brewing in New Mills for coming back to us so quickly. We now have 3 extra ales for home delivery (or pickup) on our online shop. Only had the chance to try the IPA properly – it’s very good – citrus flavours. The Amber and Bitter taste good but only had a sip of them – I’ll have a proper taste during the week.

Anyway, we’re all stocked up & raring to go for Father’s Day delivery – we don’t normally deliver on Sundays but we’ve made an exception for all you lovely sons & daughters who are buying for their Dads.
