April 20: Happy Birthday, Merlins!

Today: Family Afternoon with Punch & Judy Show
Time: 1:30 pm
Tonight: Anniversary Pub Quiz
Time: 8:00 pm

It’s our birthday! Merlins Rest opened on 20 April 2007–John Dingley‘s birthday! Dingley is our Welsh publican and a fine soul. So today we’re having lots of fun in celebration of this aligning of good tidings.

This afternoon we’ll celebrate with a family day that includes a Punch & Judy Show. Events for that get underway about 1:30 pm.

And tonight John Dingley will host the Sunday Pub Quiz and call out the questions. That weekly event takes place at 8:00 pm and will feature jazz from Sam Fiske and hour before and 30 minutes after the quiz. Hey! We’re a year old today and we’re feeling grand. Stop up, if you can, and raise a pint!


We now have an Employee of the Month. We absolutely love our staff so it’s high time we acknowledge them publicly! Our first Employee of the Month is…Alexi Bryant. Writes our publican Dingley, “She works in our kitchen and puts up with grueling preparation schedules, helps on the line and has stepped up to do much of the line work on her shifts. She never complains and never ceases to work cheerfully. She’s a wonderful example to all of us at Merlins Rest.”

Congratulations, Alexi! We appreciate you.
