Champagne, Chips, and Christmas

IMG_5957It’s been almost four months now since the doors of The Plough re-opened, and we hope you’ve enjoyed them as much as we have! Hopefully most of you have had the chance to partake in some of our events, the latest being last week’s Champagne Night…

On Thursday evening, we were joined in the Mandolin Bar by Alex from Cambridge Wine Merchants and Martin from Joseph Perrier UK for Champagne and ‘Palate Pleasers’, provided by our chefs. It was great to get everyone trying and talking about the wines and food – in fact, we decided we quite like champagne, so have made our house Joseph Perrier available by the glass for the rest of the week.

Next up is our Day of the Dead celebration on Saturday 1st Day of the DeadNovember. There’s been a great uptake for both the daytime ‘Bag a Skelly’ Art Workshop and for the three-course Mexican Meal in the evening, but we will still be open as usual for anyone who hasn’t booked on to come down and share an ‘El Luchador’ Pizza and a flight of Tequila with us.

After that our attention will inevitably turn towards Christmas (although it seems far too early to think about!). Our Christmas Menu is now available for you and your party to book between 1st-24th December, and can be viewed online by following this link to our Christmas brochure, which also outlines our Christmas Events Calendar.

The Navajas Rioja is back on the wine-shelves, and we’re thinking that BrewDog’s Punk IPA might become a regular in the beer fridges too. There’s even a rumour that Calverley’s Shepreth Pale Ale is soon to return… but you didn’t hear it from us…
