SMOKER INN CELEBRATES 400 YEARS OF HOSPITALITY
The Smoker Inn, Plumley first opened its doors in 1611, a year when William Shakespeare’s ‘The Tempest’ was first performed and the King James Bible was published for the first time in London.
Fast forwards to 2011 and Smoker Inn has welcomed hundreds of thousands customers over the intervening 400 years.
“We have a celebration draught beer called Smoker 1611” John Bailey, landlord of Smoker Inn enthuses, “it’s been brewed especially for us by Robinsons Brewery and is on sale at the pub already.”
A full weekend of celebration is planned on Saturday 15th and Sunday 16th October from 12 noon to 6pm with a mini beer festival and food & drink fayre. There will be 10 cask conditioned beers to sample, including one of the first chances to try elbow’s ‘build a rocket boys!’ beer locally after its launch on 13th October.
It’s the perfect opportunity to enjoy the Smoker Inn’s anniversary menu, some locally sourced food and to meet Television Chef Simon Rimmer whom will be making an appearance on Saturday between 1-2pm. With the Robinsons’ shire horses and dray visiting on the Sunday, this will be a weekend for the whole family.
All proceeds from the festival will be donated to the local Multiple Sclerosis Society and there will be a prize draw for MSS with the first prize being a visit from Robinsons’ award winning chef Chris Whittleworth to cook a meal for 6 in your own home. The Smoker will also donate the wine to complement your prize meal.
Please contact John on 015657 22338 if you would like further information about the festival.
