A diary with a difference…..

Busy week(end)!

As our weeks and weekends blur into one another, its time for yet another brief update.  Apologies for not writing too much, i’m hoping the photos will make up for it a little.  First of all, i’d like to say a HUGE congratulations to Will, our awesome ex-volunteer, who completed his coast cycle yesterday, 4057 miles!  He’s missing the sea already!  Thank you Will and good luck with your new job at Edale Youth Hostel  a beautiful part of the world!

A big thank you to all the gull ringers and especially to Brian for making the weekend on the island a special one for all of us, and for truly being the first to hear the clang of the last orders bell, and probably the first to be politely asked to leave, i hope you all enjoyed our little pub, it certainly has a great atmosphere!

    Where do you have your ‘bar’ in the pub? Do you have beer ‘on tap’ or bottled? What are your licensing hours?
    Great photos. Thank you.
    Best wishes

    • Hi Jane,
      Our new pub, ‘The Gull and Leek’, is in a Victorian Barracks on the Southern end of the island. We converted the room, which used to be a shop, with a bar and a few tables. Just about everything we used to construct the pub was recycled. Although we served draught bitter, kindly donated by Brains, on our opening day, we are currently selling just bottles until we can gauge the demand for the beer. Currently we’re selling the Tomos Watkins range, Cwrw Haf, Cwrw Braf and OSB. We also sell Taffy Apple cider and 250ml bottles of wine! We’re licensed from 11am-11pm. We have to remind people to bring ID because once you are on the island there is no ‘popping back home’! Hope to see you soon, make yourself known if you visit us Jane
      thanks
