News from The Peacock

July has been wet and dreary but it hasnít dampened everyoneís support and we have had another busy month.  We even managed a surprise birthday holiday, well needed I may say, for which I am very thankful to my beautiful wife Ellen.  Whilst away my sister Vicky and brother in law Mark took the helm, nearly literally with the floods, and I think they did a marvellous job, and I thank you all for supporting them and giving them such positive feedback.

For those of you who didnít see the Stratford Herald article, Iím pleased and proud to say that we were featured in the summer issue of Squaremeal.co.uk (an acclaimed restaurant critic based in London) under ďTop 50 Restaurants Outside of London Ė Gastropub sectionĒ, whilst Iím not keen on the Gastropub term, it was great to get such an award so early in our venture.  It really makes all the hard work worthwhile.  And Iíd like to thank everyone for all the positive feedback on the new menu and especially our great fish specials.

Now we are recharged and ready for a bright and sunny August.  We are planning a number of events to make the most of the month, and we hope to see you all at some or all of them.

Firstly, on Wednesday 1st August we will have Coffee Morning from 10.15, followed again by lunch club on Wednesday 15th.  Thanks for a great turnout at the last lunch club; itís becoming a very popular event.

On the music front we will have First Folk Friday on the 3rd, and we are also hoping to get Wired the Band back for another gig, dates to be confirmed, so keep a look out on the board or the website Ė www.thepeacockoxhill.co.uk.

The quiz was another successful night, so we plan to have another one on Sunday 19th from 6 p.m. again.  Please swot up so you can take on the twice-reigning champions - the Sayers!

And last but certainly not least, we are going to put our faith in the sunshine coming and are planning a Beach BBQ Party for Sunday 26th.  We will convert the garden into a beach and aim to have a lot of fun.  Beachwear is mandatory; so donít pack your board shorts and flip-flops away too soon.

See you all soon, along with some beaming sunshine.

Chris and Ellen
