'THE CROWN' IN HARRINGWORTH: QUEEN'S PLATINUM JUBILEE PARTY

Thursday 2 June 2022

Please join us for an evening of celebration, with Street Food and a Bar at the Village Hall and in our Village Marquees. Expect to see bunting and flags! Bar opens at 6:30pm, first food order 7:00pm.

We will be serving Street Food including Paella and a Burger Bar (with vegetarian and Vegan Options) at £10 per head (with children under 16 half price). It is essential to book ahead so we can plan the catering requirements. Capacity will be limited and we are asking for payment in advance.   You can of course pop by just for a drink or two.

The Bar will be serving a selection of red and white wines, draught Black Sheep Ale and Grainstore Platinum Jubilee Gold Beer, local lagers, and a full range of soft drinks. Our Bar Manager Neil Rogers and his team look forward to welcoming you.

How to Book for Food

Please confirm as soon as you are able and we will take payment ahead of the evening. The final closing date for placing orders is Friday 27 May. However, ideally you are able to confirm very soon!

Don’t miss out as we anticipate the evening could be oversubscribed.
