Dear Villagers and loyal customers,


Oliver, Paul, Amy and Tony would like to wish you all a very merry Christmas and an extremely happy and prosperous New Year. We would also like to thank you all for the love and affection you have shown for the Village House over the past 14 years of our tenure, especially the last two, very difficult years.


As you are most probably aware, we are in the process of selling the Village House to someone we believe will continue with the same values that we have traded with and hope you support them as well as you have supported us.


Oliver and the rest of the team will still be in place and Paul and Amy will still be around and engaging fully in village life. Tony might try and retire gracefully!!


We do not have a confirmed date of completion as yet but expect it to be early in the new year. Our Christmas celebrations will continue as usual starting with the following:-


  • The Smiley’s performing on Saturday 27th November – Ticket only
  • Grand Christmas draw with Keith Hayman on Sunday 19th December
  • Christmas day family drinks – 12 to 3pm
  • Boxing Night Karaoke on Sunday 26th
  • And finishing off with our New Year’s Eve party, this year with Charisse – Ticket only

We look forward to raising a glass with you all throughout December. And don’t forget there’s £1 off all Optics Spirits doubles all the time, Plus, all bottled lagers are now only £3.60 each
Thank you very much
