Horsepower at the Horse & Groom

The calendar says it’s July but I’m tempted to ask for a steward’s enquiry. The rain has meant the bar has been cosier than usual, but that has been fun all the same. But there are some regulars aching to get back out on the water or in their walking boots.
Talking of the bad weather, a few regulars have blamed the arrival of Singin’ in the Rain at the Chichester Festival Theatre, although I think the show arrived some time before the rain. Anyway, from what I hear in the bar and read in the papers, it’s great. Well worth making an evening of it with a pre-or post-theatre dinner at the Horse & Groom.
Hopefully the sun will return for the weekend. If your thirst for all things automobile wasn’t sated by the Festival of Speed, or if you missed out on that weekend, Amberley Museum is hosting its annual Classic Car Summer Picnic on 24 July. They’re showing cars built between 1995 and 1983 and we’re only a short drive away. There’s also a Classic Microcar and Scooter Rally taking place on 31 July.
Also best enjoyed under blue skies is Glorious Goodwood, which starts on 26 July. We’re looking forward to a busy few days and, hopefully, some winners! Our converted barn accommodation makes a great base for enjoying what is one of the highlights of the summer season.
