The 3rd of July will see us celebrating Independence Day in style - with live music, DJs, dancing, an American themed BBQ, Bucking Bronco and much much more.

Food all week long will be provided by Porky’s - their Memphis style slow-roasted meats will perfectly compliment our huge range of beers, imported from coast to coast.
