I know that Piddington villagers are lucky in lots of ways: we live in a lovely, friendly village, and have a wealth of locally grown produce on our doorstep, but this year we had a bit of bad luck, in that our village pub closed in the spring. In fact, it was the loss of this pub – one place that you might bump into people informally and have a chat, or have a meal when you couldn’t face cooking – that sparked the idea of The Pantry.
Well, we’ve just heard that our nearest local now, the Bull and Butcher, Ludgershall, is offering a brilliant deal – but only to bona fide Piddingtonians.
In the evening of 9th March, from around 7pm, the pub is having a Piddington night. If you are a Piddington resident, you can tuck into a big bowl of chilli and chips for £5 and scampi for the kids for £2.50. Call 01844 238094 to book a table. But only if you can prove you’re from Piddington!
If you’re unlucky enough not to be, why not visit the pub anyway – it’s great!
