Maytime Weekender 12th October 2018
A very windy and drizzly Friday to you all, anyone remember when it was 30 degrees? No, us neither. Still, the weekend is here and there are reasons to be cheerful. We’ve got some exciting news and a few ideas for things you can do this weekend that’ll keep you nice and dry. Before we get cracking, however, we’d like to remind everyone that we are closed in the day tomorrow (Saturday the 13th of October) For a private function, reopening at 6 pm for dinner service.
Come try our new menu
After months of secretive planning, sourcing of ingredients and sampling of dishes, we have launched our autumn menu. We deliberately loaded it with warming, delicious meals that make you feel all cosy inside, designed for weather like this. There’s seared calves’ liver with chive mash and a slow roasted shoulder of lamb. Come sit by the fire and sample our new menu while you watch rain smash against the window panes. Full menu here.
After the success of our inaugural meeting, earlier this year, we’re pleased to announce that the next Maytime Inn Wine Club event will be on Friday the 23rd of November. Alberto will be making a triumphant return to the Maytime Inn with a selection of wines perfectly paired to the set menu that is included with your ticket price. Pop into the pub or give us a call to find out more.
War and Peace
If you’re a fan of the book or the BBC adaption, you’ll be pleased to hear that the Welsh National Opera will be performing their production, of the classic Tolstoy novel, tomorrow at the New Theatre, Oxford. An ambitious production performed on an epic scale, with a huge set and video projection. At the time of writing there are still a few tickets going, click here to find out there still are.
Finally, who doesn’t love Halloween decorations? Those fake cobwebs which take 6 months of attempts in order to fully remove, and those battery-powered-talking-skeletons that manage to upset animals, children and the elderly alike are great. But, if you prefer your home decorations to be slightly more homemade, then head to Paint It Yourself Pottery Co. Cheltenham. They are hosting a series of special Halloween painting sessions with a range of spooky ceramics for you and the kids to enjoy painting, and you get to take them home at the end of the day.
