Our gin night is back, and this time, we are being joined by Helen from Tipsy Filly!

On Saturday 5th October at 7pm, we are having a GIN MASTERCLASS where Helen will teach us all how to make some delicious gin cocktails and tell us all about her business and all that gin has to offer (which is a lot if you weren’t sure).

Tickets will be £17 which will include the masterclass, two double gin cocktails, 6 tasters of different gins, recipe cards, canapés and the chance to buy Tipsy Filly’s newly released and tasty gins!

Creating her masterpieces!

The class will run for about 45 minutes, and our bar will remain open after this until around 9:30 pm, where more gin, beer and other drinks will be available. We will also be open for meals as normal, so if you aren’t coming to the event then you can still come and enjoy our delicious food and beer throughout the night! If you are coming along to the class, then you too can still come for a meal before the class, or you can stay for a meal and a few more drinks afterwards!

Helen created Tipsy Filly in 2017 and in only two years, Tipsy Filly has created lots of happy (and tipsy) customers who have left amazing reviews online! You can take a look for yourselves here:


Helen is super gin-thusiastic and is being booked up quicker than ever, so take your chance to come and see what Tipsy Filly has in store! We only have 30 places, so make sure to get your tickets now. To purchase them, simply call us on 01946 862977. We can’t wait to see you all there. Cheers!
