It was celebrations all round at a popular Royston pub at the weekend, when managers at The Boars Head in Market Hill held a beer festival to honour their first anniversary and St George’s Day.
Special guest Apollo the dog worked the room, as punters enjoyed sampling a selection of 10 real ales and a browse of Heathlands Animal Sanctuary stall.
Manager Matthew Brazier said: “It was great to see the locals getting into the St George’s Day spirit and having Heathlands Animal Sanctuary on site with their craft stall, dog gifts and tombola gave Saturday a real family feel.
“Following the success of Saturday, we’re planning to allow Heathlands space on a once monthly basis to run a pop up craft and pet shop in the pub so watch this space for more details.
“We’d like to thank our regulars for their generous support of both the beer festival and Heathlands Animal Sanctuary.”
The pub team was also visited on Sunday by 30 members of the Beds & Herts Citroën 2cv Club, who came out on classic car drive it day to sample the festival feel and to enjoy Sunday lunch.
