Battle for the Ashes 

The Cavers vs Priddy Cricket match will take place after the lunchtime pub session on Sunday 26th July.

In a break from tradition of playing against the Wessex, the challenge this year is from the Priddy's 1st Eleven and will be mellowed out on the village green.

Why not come along and slog a few balls into the nettles or simply relax, soak up the sun (if the is any) and sample the delights of a barrel of Butcombe.

A fun day out for all the family! Guaranteed!

Bertie is Back !!!

The Belfry was rebranded over the weekend with our very own mascot. A huge Bertie Bat now lurches over the porch looking menacing at all who enter.

Whilst out on one of it's nightly feeding sessions it managed to snare the Wessex dragon (or Griffin or whatever the feck it is). Since it clearly is pretty unpalatable he hasn't yet had a chance to digest it.

It was a blinder of a night. Not knowing the numbers we laid on 4 barrels for the night, food for 100 people, plus a complete outdoor dj rig. The weather was appalling but that didn’t seem to make any difference. By midnight the beer had gone and everyone switched to personal stashes. At 2:30am the sounds were still playing outside.
