LIVE, LAUGH, LET'S GO THE PUB
The end of the year is almost upon us. The fifth season, dubbed ‘Silly Season’ by meteorologists, is the time of year where every weekday in December feels like a Friday and all your group chats are going off well before 5pm. Between the highlights and the lowlights, your lap around the sun in 2023 is almost complete. But no lap is complete without that end of year blowout where you look back on the year that was and laugh, smile, cringe and cry, surrounded by your nearest and dearest with a raised glass firmly in hand.
Whether it’s a with bottle of bubbly to celebrate the year just gone, a jug or two of golden nectar to cheers to the year ahead, or a boozy Christmas feast of pubby proportions to bring everyone together.; every end of year celebration is sacred and we understand that.
Good mates make the world go round, so we propose a little exchange: Your mates. Our pub. Sound good? Sweet as.
