    inspired by our great "Crates of Soul" occasional events, this monthly mini-dayer is a meet-up, listen & have a drink kind of thing with rarish 60s & 70s soul of all tempos. Please note there is no dance floor. Cask ales & food available, large car park & beer garden (should it ever stop raining, we'll put the choons on outside too) Deano (usually) and Bob (sometimes) may be joined by friends who can actually get away with playing b-sides at this gig.

    Crates of Soul

    Rarely played soul for collectors, by collectors. If the weather's fine, we'll be out in the garden, if not, in the Cellar Bar. Either way, you'll hear some great tunes, probably some you ain't heard before! Food, including our famous Sunday Roasts, available all day with cask ales and 4 lagers, 2 ciders and Guinness on the bar.
