Welcome to Woodfired Wednesday!
We thought we would try and cheer everyone up after Sunday. So we've arranged for the sun to shine and we are excited to introduce 'Woodfired Wednesday' where you can enjoy 2 regular pizzas along with a salad of your choice and a portion of olives for £20. Order to eat in with us or collect. Book online via Facebook or our Website, or give us a call from 4pm. 01829 423118
Nicole's Polpette is proving very popular. On for this week only now, whilst stock lasts. Don't miss out. Developed and perfected by our very own Nicole this is an Italian meatball pizza. Our pizza sauce topped with mozzarella strips, Nicole's homemade Italian meatballs and fresh basil leaves. Delicious.
NICKY PHILLIPS - LIVE MUSIC
Thank you Nicky Phillips for a fantastic evening of music. Lovely night.
More details to follow but for those of you who cant wait.....tickets are now available for PizzaFest which is on Saturday 14th August.
See the link below.
WE ARE RECRUITING :)
We are looking for a an experienced individual to join our team with a view to taking on supervisory duties on shift. Experience in Hospitality or similar would be great but all training and development will be provided so fear not if you haven't stretched pizzas before - neither had we before we started
Applicants will need to be over 18 as a minimum due to licensing requirements but preferable will have a few more years work or life experience . We think this role would be great for a local person looking for a part time role who enjoys working in a fun and friendly team environment.

THIS WEEKS BEERS
Another new lager to try folks. This one is very local from the guys at Glen Affric Brewery which is Wirral's modern craft brewery, based in Birkenhead. These guys are renowned for making small batch beers with bold flavour.
Loch & Load is an award winning pilsner turned it on its head with heaps of New World hops from New Zealand. A bready, biscuit malt body with layers of zesty lime, citrus lemon and pine from Motueka and Wai-iti hops. Familiar to lager drinkers, but more complex and exciting. #craftlager @glenaffricbrewery #woodfiredpizza
Delighted to be welcoming Dave from Village Beatz back.
10th July 2021 from 6pm
Come and join us for classic pizza, cool tunes, crafted drinks and great company. 01829 423118
THE RESTORATION CONTINUES .....
As those of you that pass by on a daily basis can see work is progressing on the restoration of this lovely old pub. Beams have been replaced, the building is being under pinned and foundations are being dug for the extension at the back. All exciting stuff.
As well as all the activity on the main building we are still busy making pizzas and serving great beer. Feel free to bob in or give us a call on 01829 423118 to place an order or book a table.
THEY'RE BACK! This Saturday 5th June the Scratchband will be playing for us again in the evening. A cheerful accompaniment to your pizza and drinks in the sunshine. :)
Well after an age that seemed to be pulling everything apart, we are finally putting things back together again. We have started at the top and are working our way down. 8 ensuite bedrooms are now taking shape. Keeping original features where we can and making the most of the internal shape of this fascinating building.
BLUE SKIES & SUNSHINE
What a lovely week in the sunshine. Enjoying a drink and a pizza. Did you know on Fridays and Saturdays we now also do a Smoked Brisket Brioche with pickles and mustard mayo - using Redpoll Beef and Mrs. Darlington's Tewkesbury Mustard.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT
Thank you so much to all of you that supported us last week as we opened up our outside area. We were blessed with blue skies and look forward to welcoming more of you this week in the sunshine. We've also added to the menu with our Dip & Sip sharing boxes and our smokey brisket brioche available on Fridays and Saturdays.
2500 COOKED PIZZA WINNER
Last week we realized that we were very close to selling our 2500th cooked pizza! This was claimed on Thursday night by Lloyd Owen with his pizza & prosecco deal. Congratulations to Lloyd who gets a pizza with our compliments with his next order.
Lovely day today building our outside bar ready to welcome you on the 14th April. Many thanks to Richard, Sean and Nigel for all their hard work so you can enjoy pizza and a pint (or prosecco). To book a table for up to 6 people click on any of our 'book now' buttons.
WE'VE GONE NATIONAL!
We now post our @homeDuo kits nationally. Great for birthdays, anniversaries or just to say thank you :)
We post out every Thursday so our kits arrive on the Friday in time for some fun over the weekend.
STUDENTS APPLY LESSONS AT BEAR & RAGGED STAFF
Cookery and construction aren't two trades you typically see together, but for Cheshire College — South & West and The Bear and Ragged Staff they make the perfect pairing. Before the most recent lockdown, construction learners at Cheshire's largest College had been putting into practice new skills they've learnt in the classroom to support the renovation works required at the pub.
CULINARY SCHOOL & FUNCTION ROOM
Work has started on the restoration of the function room and turning part of the first floor into a culinary school.
Our @home kits have been going down a storm and it is lovely getting feedback and photos of your successes.
At the start of the year we had a competition for the best recycled pizza boxes, with some fantastic results. Please keep sending us photos of your upcycled boxes.
BEAR & RAGGED STAFF RESTORATION
After a few months delay we have now started to rebuild the Bear & Ragged Staff. A big shout out to Prigg Electricals, CW Plumbing and Nigel Tucker, all local tradesmen who are working on this and doing a fantastic job.
Did you know that we now do Gift Vouchers? Available from £5. Just give us a call on 01829 423118 and we can sort everything out for you.
