After lot of stops and starts and changing regulations we can finally reopen the pub beer garden for the first time in over 14 months! We have spent some time renovating it & making it a welcoming, weather-proof, Covid-compliant space and we’re ow able to throw open our doors and welcome drinkers back to the Sweffling White Horse.
There is now space for 6 separate groups to sit, with seating for up to 42 people and most of this is covered by a rainproof roof. Our first ‘Sunday Session (as they are currently was on Sunday 6 June from 12 noon til 5pm, and now hopefully we’ll be open every Sunday from there on. We can’t wait to see you all again!
To ensure there’s space for everyone, we have set up a small extra seating area in the car park – so please park in the overflow parking field to make space for this. Due to its size, the pub building will remain closed – except for the side door for access to the toilets.
A date for your diary
We’re also bringing back live music! Way back when the pub closed, we were about to celebrate the spring equinox in accordance with our time-honoured tradition. The seasons have changed 4 times since then which means we’ve missed 5 gigs from the Rum Ol’ Buoys but…. THEY’RE BACK!!
We are going to celebrate the start of summer on the evening of Saturday 26 June. Hope to see you there!
Our First Sunday Session
Our first Sunday as landlord and landlady was brilliant! It was so lovely be running the pub again (albeit just outdoors) after more than 14 months of being closed and far too quiet.
We started the day with our first charity walk for a while too; Nicky & Rob led the walk to Bruisyard and back, and raised £46 for the Brain Tumour Charity.
