Real ales being shipped in

A WIDE range of ales will be on tap at the annual Beer Festival taking place at The Ship pub in Bawtry from this Friday until Sunday.

Landlord and landlady Dave Wallis and his wife Mandy are celebrating their fourth anniversary at the Gainsborough Road hostelry.

During their time as hosts the pub has been awarded the Doncaster Campaign for Real Ale pub of the season for autumn in 2008 and the Doncaster District pub of the year for 2011.

The Waitin’ for Dave band, along with 1960s group The Daybreakers, will provide the entertainment at the festival – at which there will also be a tasty hog roast, and fun activities to keep children entertained.
