Celebrate St Patricks Day This Evening & Early Morning

Just a quick to reminder that tickets are still available for tonight’s St Patrick’s Day celebration… We’re opening 7pm until 4am to celebrate the Welsh saints day and we’ve ordered in gallons of the Welsh national drink, Special Brew. Due to the strength of the beer and a lack of plastic glasses we are banning kids from the pub, though due to the pleas of parents the under 16s will be allowed in the unlit garden and car park. Entry to the pub will be by pre-purchased tickets only and a finger buffet of Welsh Rarebit based bar snacks will be included in the price. Cardiff’s legendary tribute band The Panic Heat Streakers will be performing songs about Whales so join us for a bonza evening… Tickets cost £248.55 and we’ve a got a few prizes to hand out to the first ten punters dressed as characters from Gavin & Stacey. So see you later.
