Bath’s boozy past – a free talk at The Inn at Freshford
As part of the Save Bath’s Historic campaign launched for The Inn at Freshford in July, Avalanche Media has organised a special evening of local pub history next week.
Local historian Kirsten Elliott will provide an illustrated glimpse into the Bath area’s boozy past next Wednesday (17th October), at 8pm. It’s a good excuse for a midweek drink and a free local history lesson.
If you want to do a bit of swotting up first, Kirsten’s books are available from local bookshops and Amazon. Titles include Bath Pubs; Hidden Paths and Secret Gates: Six All-Day Walks Around Bath; Queen of Waters: A Journey in Time Along the Kennet and Avon Canal; Bath; The Lost Pubs of Bath.
The Inn at Freshford has just launched a new menu, if you fancy a bite to eat first. I’d recommend getting there early and indulging in the classic Welsh rarebit, or going hell for leather on the burger, topped with applewood smoked cheddar, bacon, devilled sauce and served with chips, and salad.
To enjoy all of this completely guilt-free, please sign this petition, to help protect the future of Bath’s pubs.
