The Alpaca Seafood Platter
FOOD & DRINK

"For a moment, or a second, the pinched expressions of the cynical, world-weary, throat-cutting, miserable bastards we've all had to become disappears, when we're confronted with something as simple as a plate of food." - Anthony Bourdain

LETS GET SOCIAL

Follow us on Instagram

This week is exactly 25 years since that saddest of nights when we dared to dream on home ground but were cruelly denied by the right foot of the Aston Villa man who would one day be manager of England. 😢 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿 🇩🇪 ⚽️ 🥅 👀
So, can you face more heartbreak? Do we even want to win tonight and face the Group of Death winners next week? Who knows! 🤷🏽‍♂️
It’s a funny old game and we’re mad to care so much but we wouldn’t have it any other way. 👍🏼
Join us tonight for either a fist-pumping night of adrenaline and national pride or the familiar stomach-churning, hand-wringing despondency of another mediocre performance.
We’re not taking any more bookings with a few spots left for those who make it down early. 
💪🏼⚽️🙌🏼🍻🍽😂😔🥰

We’ve had to wait an extra year but the euros have finally arrived! We’ll be showing all the England games with full sound around the pub and opening up our 1st floor bar so everyone can come and enjoy the game! 

Good friends, good food, cold pints and a summer of football, what more could you want?

It’s been great to welcome everyone back over the past few weeks, familiar faces and new faces alike! 

Unfortunately one of our favourite regulars Reg passed away during the lockdown. He was a pleasure to have in and loved by all of the staff. It was his commemorative service today so we wanted to pull a pint for him and every other person who has not been able to return to the local pub that they loved 🍺
