Saturday 26th and Sunday 27th June – The Big Hug
Due to the uncertainty surrounding the final opening up of hospitality on 21st June, we have decided to postpone this event. We hope to find a new date later in the summer. What this space.
Our rear terrace marquee, aka The Clubhouse will be convincing us all of its sporting credentials this summer. We’ve fixed our 65” flat screen and speakers to the far wall and we will be showing all the big events of the summer: The Euros, Wimbledon, The Lions Tests, the Olympics and the Crown Green Bowls from Eastbourne. Certain events and dates will be more popular than others. You can book a table in the marquee online or via telephone or just turn up. There may be standing room only if we do well at something but that’s unlikely!
Europe Football Championships
You can come and watch any game at any time but the most popular will be the England games. The first three group games are:
- Sunday 13th June 2pm England V Croatia
- Friday 18th June 8pm England v Scotland
- Tuesday 22nd June 8pm England v Czech Republic
If you wish to eat while watching sport please book a table in the marquee. If you want to come just for the game, turn up without booking.
You can book a table online or by phone in any of three zones (click Book A Table, select table size and then select the zone from the drop down): the heated and now semi open Marquee, the (uncovered, unheated) Front Terrace Area or Indoors (tables available from 17th May). The online system allows for bookings of up to 12 people but tables of this size are only valid inside the pub if made up of two households. For groups made up of more than two households you are limited to the Rule of Six indoors until the reopening up (date TBC). From 17th May Rule of Six ends in our marquee and on our front terrace so we welcome larger bookings in these areas. For reservations of 13-30 people in the marquee or front terrace please call to discuss your requirements. We are also taking phone enquiries for larger reservations (6+) inside the pub for the period after full opening up (TBC).
You can move an existing booking from one area to an another subject to availability in that area. We aim to allocate a minimum of two hours for larger dining tables and reservations will be held for a maximum of 15 minutes, so please stay in touch if you’re running late. No shows are an increasing problem in the industry and we may not accept future bookings if you fail to show up without warning. Please note the lawns will open up from Monday June 14th.
Please do not make online bookings for drinks. Either turn up or call in advance. We may not honour an online booking for drinks.
The marquee clubhouse will be hosting TV sport this summer so please tell us if you are looking for or strictly trying to avoid a sporty atmosphere!
