Politics and beer at the Horse & Groom

You can get politics and beer at the Horse & Groom in East Ashling almost any night of the week, but occasionally I like to broaden my horizons and there are a few good reasons to do so in Chichester over the next couple of weeks.

It may be only the older regulars that remember this on television, but Yes, Prime Minister is coming to the Chichester Festival Theatre on 26 January for a short run (and the original writers are in charge)– well worth making a mini-break for and booking one of our cosy rooms.

Talking of cosy rooms, the seating at the Chichester Cinema is a lot more comfortable these days, and for a completely different slice of UK politics, Tinker Tailor Solider Spy starts there on 10 February (nicely timed for the awards season).

Staying with cosy rooms, rarely is there reason to venture outside of the Horse & Groom bar, beautifully warmed by our open fire, in search of decent beer, but West Dean College is hosting a day course on beers for gastronomes and guzzlers on 4 February. Highlights include matching beers to food and a visit to a local brewery – I recommend once school has finished putting the theory into practice in a lovely pub just down the road! There’s also another food course  – spicing up your winter (28 January) – that looks good: something spicy and a few beers sounds like a perfect recipe for winter!

Keep warm and see you soon at the Horse & Groom!
