September is the start of meteorological Autumn and The Harvest Moon signals the biggest agricultural jobs in the calendar. The Autumn Equinox is the 23rd, a gardener won’t go hungry at this time of year.
Watch out for the first sweet chestnuts, quince, top fruit, nuts, Brussels sprouts, shellfish and wild game from Scotland. It’s all happening.

IN THE BOTTLE
Our wine loving buddy Phil is a Master of Wine (MW) no less and over the years has built up a considerable private cellar. He has dropped some in here at The Oarsman so we can show you some fabulously rare treats at a very affordable price – okay they aren’t cheap, but you’re not likely to find them available in a pub at these prices and we have such small quantities we will be changing them monthly.
IN THE GLASS
It’s the greatest cocktail. For some people, it’s the only cocktail. So perfect in its simplicity – and even better when experimenting with it. Come join us for a well deserved Marmelade Martini, using Chase Marmalade Vodka, Cointreau, Home-made marmalade, Orange Peel & Fresh Lime.
