Also from next week we are having new signs erected! The old faded Bateman's signs are going and being replaced with shiny new signs emblazoned with our new logo. So far we've seen the renderings and we cannot wait... everyone going past on the tram will be reaching for the button to get off!!
The Rock 'n' Roll Burger Co. menu still seems to be the number one reason to visit us in the week and work has already begun on version 2.0 of the menu! We're working closely with our drinks supplier and pairing the burgers with new American wines and craft beers. We already have the Monday and Tuesday "Beer & Burger" offer with Harvest Pale but that has proven so popular we're extending it across the range. We'll keep you posted on the progress.
Playing live tonight are Parker, formerly known as El Duderino, their set consists of a wide range of styles performing songs by artists such as: The Clash, Rolling Stones, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Arctic Monkeys, The Beatles to The Jam & many more. Tomorrow night we welcome back Mod Story, a big live sound Weller himself would be proud of!
Just a quick mention about our current Brewery of the Month, Ringwood Brewery, from sunny Hampshire for June. Look out for Fortyniner, Boondoggle and Old Thumper amongst others. An excellent brewery with well established beers that are hard to find north of the Watford Gap! In July we can look forward to hosting beers from Black Iris Brewery based at The Flowerpot pub in the heart of Derby, a pub not so dissimilar to The Lion in fact, so they should go down well.
See you here at the lion later teatime beer garden beers!
