If there’s one thing our beloved village of West Bergholt knows how to do right, it’s getting together and celebrating as a community. And what better reason than the Platinum Jubilee, marking 70 years of our pub namesake’s service on the throne – and the long (and long-awaited!) weekend that comes with it.
And long weekends were made for lovers of friendly local pubs…
We’ve got loads going on inside the pub to mark the occasion from Thursday 2nd to Sunday 5th June, including some right royal deals on all your favourite food and drink – which you can read about here – but we’ll also be coming out from our kitchen and behind the bar and hitting the pavements to participate in the quintessential British celebratory tradition – yes, we’re joining the street party!
Our friends and neighbours will be out on Queen’s Road from 12pm on Sunday afternoon, no doubt dressed in their best red, white and blue, to raise a glass in what we hope will be the sunshine – as well as getting those knees up for a dance to some fantastic music from the DJ throughout the day!
Ourselves, we’ll be adding some tasty nibbles to proceedings, with our Queen’s Head Jubilee cake stall outside the front of the pub. We’ll be selling homemade snacks such as our sausage rolls and Scotch eggs, as well as cakes and cupcakes – if you’ve ever been to one of our Wednesday Cake and Coffee Mornings, you’ll know just how special our home-baked treats are.
The pub is also open for breakfast, lunch, dinner and drinks from 10am – 9pm on Sunday, so make sure to pop in for a rest and to fuel up between songs! Or why not pre-order a couple of our picnic boxes, available on Saturday and Sunday? Wood-fired pizzas will also be available at the party – so you really are spoilt for choice.
More details about our updated opening times, and what’s on at The Queen’s Head for the Jubilee weekend, can be found here. Just give us a call on 01206 240 394 if you’d like to book a table or if you have any questions.
We cannot wait to celebrate this momentous weekend with you all! It’s sure to be one for the history books.
