So two pubs, two kids and a dog all in, I finally got around to starting The Ebrington Arms' blog!
I'm going to keep you up to date pub on news and events, backstage shizzles and the odd ramblings of a landlady right here.
While it might have taken a decade to get blogging, we're starting on a very special year for all of us in The Ebrington Arms or the 'Yubby' as our locals call it. And, just so we're clear, 'Yubby' is derived from the old village name, Yubberton and yes we have since named our beer after it too!
It's 300 years since The Ebrington Arms had its first licensed landlord, William Kyte, in 1717. And in 2017 Jim an I are also celebrating our 10th anniversary at the pub.
When we left the bright lights of London for the 'stars only' night lights of Ebrington a decade ago, we became the latest in a long line of custodians of this historic Cotswold stone building - and we never looked back. You see we believe very passionately in our country's pubs and their place in our heritage. They are the glue in keeping communities together and tourism alive and well.
So what more of an excuse do we need for a party than that? We've pencilled in Saturday September 16th. Are you in? You heard it here first and I'll see you down the front. Please save the date and share this with your buddies for a raucous night of beer swilling, music and dancing! YUBBYFEST IS BACK!
