The Landlord’s hasty drivel V1.2 and a bit

The Landlord’s hasty drivel V1.2 and a bit

Dear Incredibly Important Customer,

Since our recent acquisition (17th April 2012) of this beautiful Historic Pub, we have begun to improve and have upgraded the ingredients we prepare for you. We like a fresh approach to our flavours and look, our portion size will stay in line with our Countries Olde Pub tradition of the generous variety, you have been warned!

Further from my last Landlord’s hasty drivel V1.173.5 and a half, I would like to continue endorse my opinion again that Beer is still very much a wonderful thing!!

Our Chefs’ prepare a delicious serving which is naturally cooked to order. We will never compromise on the freshness, quality or taste of the food you will enjoy. Many of you will get to understand our beliefs about food, and there are many. I will give you just one for now, my Wife eats here!!

We have begun to update the website http://www.yeoldefightingcocks.co.uk with all our latest news Menu’s and events. More good news! You will endure more of my hasty drivel on the back of the next menu and web site in future.

STOP PRESS

Open Mic on Friday was another huge success, enough so we will be holding open mic nights every Friday until further notice.

Whilst on the subject of live music, as promised, I have managed to negotiate our first band to headline on a Saturday!!!!

The Two Johnny’s and guests have unfortunatly had to pull out due to the bassist being offered a paid gig in miami and therefore is being rescheduled to a later date (who can blame him!!) however we will still be having a band on for the evening and they will be playing on Saturday 23rd June 2012 from around 7.30pm onwards. Please book your table early. Last orders in the kitchen on this day will be around 7.30pm.

I am happy to report our Facebook page is growing, not only have I recognised all the friends and family I have begged to like our page but alas, there are many of whom who are totally genuine, thank you and keep it up! http://www.facebook.com/YeOldeFightingCocks  It is completely within our rules for you to check in on Facebook status while you are here as well!!

We raised £56 for the Drama Department and are in the early planning g stages of showing you what good use your money is going to. This will include performances here at the pub and maybe even a small rendition of something before a quiz night!! Watch this space, more will follow.

I look forward to meeting you.

My very best wishes to all.

Landlord’s Hasty Drivel V1.173.5

V1.173.5 and a half

Dear Incredibly Important Customer,

We like a fresh approach to our flavours and look, our portion size will stay in line with our Countries Olde Pub tradition of the generous variety, you have been warned!

Further from my last Landlord’s hasty drivel V1.0 I would like to continue endorse my opinion again that Beer is good!

Please feel free to visit our Facebook page and like us if you have enjoyed your time not forgetting to check in while you are here. We will be holding special events throughout the year which will involve our Facebook Page members. We will keep you posted!

We have added to our current team of highly trained staff (Which turn out to be mostly musicians). Our new staff members, true to form seem to fit the current theme, our newest members include an Actor/Director, International Footballer and of course a Student who I suspect is more intelligent than all of us put together!

Our next open mic night is this Friday 18th May, if it is anything like our last one two weeks ago we will be increasing our live music to every Friday and maybe having a Headline Act on a Saturday???? Watch this space…..

By popular demand Quiz nights on Thursday are going to remain, the new news is all our proceeds (£2.00 per head) will go to the St Albans School Drama department, we will update you with the money raised every so often.

I look forward to meeting you.

My very best wishes to all.

Landlord’s Hasty Drivel v1.0!

The Landlord’s hasty drivel V1.0

 

Dear Incredibly Important Customer,

Since our recent acquisition (17th April 2012) of this beautiful Historic Pub, we have begun to improve and have upgraded the ingredients we prepare for you. We like a fresh approach to our flavours and look, our portion size will stay in line with our Countries Olde Pub tradition of the generous variety, you have been warned!

Beer is good!

We are already experiencing a higher demand and we are stretched during busy times. Our Chefs’ prepare a delicious serving which is naturally cooked to order. Sadly, during peak times you may have to wait for more time than such wonderfully intelligent and attractive St Albans type people should! I would personally like to apologise if this happens, our highly trained staff will be able to give you our best idea of the time you can expect your beautifully prepared meal.

We will never compromise on the freshness, quality or taste of the food you will enjoy. Many of you will get to understand our beliefs about food, and there are many. I will give you just one for now, my Wife eats here!!

Soon, we will be updating and keeping our website current and relevant with all our latest news Menu’s and events. More good news! You will endure more of my hasty drivel on the back of the next menu.

In the meantime, I would like to thank all of the staff for their hard work and dedication shown since we joined. Chris and I would like to give both Coco (He only needs One name and no introduction) and our Head Chef Przemek (You can be my Head Chef any Day) Kowalski for their professionalism, dedication, enthusiasm and most importantly trust in our short, medium and long term plans.

 

I look forward to meeting you.

My very best wishes to all.
