Shop opens during lockdown at the Castle Inn Pub in Castle Bytham

When Boris Johnson called time on pubs last month, one village inn’s landlords weren’t going to be left crying into their pints.

Instead, Will Stanton and Sue Farley, who run the Castle Inn at Castle Bytham, sprang into action to open a village store.

Castle Inn Christmas Menu 2011

If you have not planned your Christmas Party yet the the Castle Inn in Castle Bytham are offering a full Christmas menu until Christmas Eve.  As well as the anticipated traditional roast turkey with all the festive trimmings, the menu also offers braised beef with horseradish and a fragrant lentil and sweet potato stew.

For starters you can chose from cannellini bean soup, tempura battered prawns with sweet chilli sauce and pigeon breast in stout with bubble and squeak.  If you can manage it there is the temptation of a rich Christmas pudding with orange liqueur cream, malt chocolate cheesecake or a trio of fruit sorbet followed by coffee and chocolates.

To make a booking for the Christmas menu, priced very reasonably at £19.95 per person, contact Charlotte or Eamonn on 01780 410504 or email morkerytaverns@hotmail.com.  A £5 non-returnable deposit per person is required at the time of booking.

Come Carolling with Us

The Castle Bytham Carollers will be embarking on their annual tour of the village on Monday, December 12th, to raise much-needed funds for St James’ Church and in particular help towards the cost of repairing the roof.

The lantern-lit procession will be joined by Santa, and we’re hoping to top last year’s effort when an amazing £330 was collected from exceedingly generous villagers.

We want to make this a great family occasion, so please join us for a sing-song and bring your young ones with you. Carol sheets are provided and don’t worry if you wouldn’t pass the auditions for The X Factor – everyone is welcome. Feel free to bring your own lantern, or perhaps even a musical instrument.

To get the evening off to a good start, Charlotte and Eamonn at The Castle are kindly providing sherry and mince pies at 6pm for all those taking part.

We aim to get round as much of the village as we can in a couple of hours, and this year we are intending to cover the Holywell Road/Regal Gardens/Bytham Heights/Clipsham Road area, so keep an ear out for us, or why not come and join us.
