West End Tavern: Cask Marque Accreditation and Festive Fair

Congratulations!!!! The West End Tavern has been awarded a Cask Marque Accreditation. This is awarded after a pub and cellar are inspected and the quality of the cask beers served is found to be of a very high standard.

Sean has worked very hard to improve the cellar and is proud to serve a ‘great pint’. Real Ales are becoming more and more popular and there is now a Cask Finder App which will let you know about the pubs local to you serving real ales as well as tasting notes for most ales.

Also The West End Tavern are hosting a Festive Fair on Thursday 8th November between 6pm and 8pm. Gemma Keith Designs, Grey & Bruce, Jo Boardman Silver Jewellery, Marden Farm Shop, Pastime Pins, Rachie’s Flowers, Zubeida Roberts Art and Safe Anaesthesia will be there. Also live music by Michael Lack. Entry is Free

Marden in Bloom Plaques


Marden in Bloom are so grateful to those businesses who generously sponsored us earlier this year which enabled us to replant the planters in the village this Autumn and purchase over 5,000 bulbs! We have placed plaques in the planters listing those businesses who kindly donated.

To continue with our project, we have to hold fund-raising events or rely on donations, so any help would be wonderful. Community engagement is our motto.
