Arrive from 4.30 to meet some of the Castle Rock team, as well as the bosses, and sample Little Saint Nick direct from the barrel. We're going all out and making the standard Friday teatime buffet extra special too so there's every reason to coax your colleagues into a cheeky payday Christmas beer.
Not only all of that but you may have seen on our Facebook and Twitter feed that we put our Christmas tree up yesterday! She's an absolute beauty and we've put her up especially to coincide with the launch of Little Saint Nick- the rest of the decs will go up on Monday!
Christmas Fair Announcement
You may know that every year we have a mega Christmas Fair here at The Lion and earlier this week we sent all the detail off to our print shop so expect lots of posters and flyers around the pub next week. It is to take place on Saturday 13th December from 12noon.
Highlights definitely include a vinyl fair, organised by our flippin' excellent (See what we did there) chef Paul, craft gift stalls- perfect to pick something up for her indoors fellas- as well as loads of games, raffles and tombolas. We'll also have a face painting lady here so you can bring the little ones too. We will also be unveiling our Spiced Mulled Cider that day and will have our Christmas burger "Santa Baby" available, an amazing pulled turkey burger served with melted brie and cranberry sauce mmmmm.
Black Iris 'Brewery Tap' Coming Soon
As some of you may be aware, the lads from Black Iris Brewery have set up shop in a unit just down the road from us. Situated directly opposite Shipstone Street Tram Stop they've been busy for a couple of months now getting set up and we can almost smell the first brew!! We can reveal that we will have one cask line and one keg 'craft' line dedicated to Black Iris, both of which will be rotating through their brand new range. As well as the dedicated lines we are flexible enough to be able to feature more of course... we have 11 to choose from!!! We'll let you know when the keg is installed but we have word that we will have their first official brew from the new digs in the next week or so- keep your eyes on our Facebook and Twitter for news as it happens.
Rock 'n' Roll Christmas Burger Co.
If you haven't yet sorted out your Christmas get-together with the lads from work, the girls in the office, your best pals, family or whoever, our Christmas Rock 'n Roll Burger Co. menu is still available to book. you can view the menu online here, the response has been overwhelming and we're well impressed with the amount of bookings we've had so far but there's still time as it's available until Christmas Eve ;)
See you this evening!
John, Josie & Team Lion x
