Oswestry Mayor Paul Milner has cut the first birthday cake for The Bailey Head Pub, one year on from when his predecessor Peter Cherrington cut the ribbon to open the pub.
Owners Grace Goodlad and Duncan Borrowman have enjoyed a busy year of bringing a community centred pub to the town.
Grace Goodlad said: “We promised a pub that would attract use by community groups. Among others in our first year we have hosted regular meetings of Border Visual Arts, the formative meeting of the new Oswestry Round Table, the Women’s Institute, church organised charity quizzes for CHALK C.I.C., Osestry Jazz Orchestra, Clerical Error Morris Dancers, a stitch and bitch group and a scifi book club.”
Duncan Borrowman said: “We have focused on local and quality products, including over 300 different real ales and craft beers on tap, a menu of 32 gins. Welsh and Shropshire cheeses and charcuterie, pork pies and scotch eggs made here in Oswestry and during the cold months casserole of local venison as well as vegan options.”
