A summer of fun planned the Craven Arms, Enborne
A rural pub nestled in the small village of Enborne will be organising a number of events this summer to help celebrate CAMRA’s Summer of Pub campaign - an initiative to encourage pub-going over the summer months.
The Craven Arms on Skinners Green Lane is a traditional country pub with a huge outdoor seating area serving great food, gin and of course, great beer. Dating back to the early 18th century, they are a family-friendly establishment with a large beer garden, ample parking, disabled access and pet-friendly facilities.
Starting with a quiz night on the first of the month, they are organising a number of events to encourage locals and visitors alike to head down to their pub this summer. Forthcoming activities include:
Outdoor BBQ and licensed bar with live music from the Newbury band Beatlejuice, who will be covering the fab four hits in their own unique way. Visit from 12 pm noon for food and 4-6pm live music on Saturday 6th July
Quiz night on the first Monday of every month – the next quiz will be the 5th of August
Garden party with a BBQ and live music from Newbury band Mash, covering all your favourite hits both new and old from 5-7pm on Saturday 10th August
Summer Ale Amble with the local CAMRA branch, Saturday 27th July
Country Day including a BBQ, hog roast and bar from 12 noon – grab your cowboy hats and join our bar dance from 4-6pm with Liam Barnes and Dave Dart on Saturday 24th August
CAMRA is working hundreds of pubs, including the Craven Arms, to organise events to celebrate pub-going this summer, helping to keep the tradition alive by reminding the public how important their local is to their community.
Residents can join the local CAMRA branch for an eight-mile walk through the West Berkshire countryside to visit the Craven Arms, White Hart, and Dundas Arms, which will be leaving from the Market Square, Newbury at 11:00am Saturday July 27th.
CAMRA’s National Chairman Nik Antona said: “It’s fantastic to see so many pubs get involved in the Summer of Pub campaign and put on events to encourage visitors through their doors this summer. From World Cups screenings to Quiz Nights and Garden Parties, the range of activities taking place demonstrates how unique the Great British Pub is as an institution – reminding us all why we need to work so hard to preserve it.”
