Egg-straordinary fun for Easter weekend

EASTER excitement is descending on two Warwickshire pubs where there will be some eggs-tra tasty surprises for younger guests.

On Saturday, April 16th eagle-eyed visitors to The Bell Inn in Ladbroke and The Castle at Edgehill can earn themselves a chocolatey treat by taking part in the pub’s first Easter Egg Hunt.

As part of the event, between 3-5pm, children will be invited to colour in an activity sheet as they spot a host of painted wooden eggs hidden around the premises.

There will also be the opportunity to take up the challenge of designing their own unique egg creation, the overall winners of which will be announced on Easter Monday and will receive a Cadbury’s Easter egg.

On Easter Sunday, April 17th, Thom Kirkpatrick will take the spotlight at The Bell with a live music set in the pub garden.

Street food will be available to purchase from the Freespirit Food Truck between 6-8.30pm.

The Bell reopened as a steakhouse a few weeks ago following a takeover by the Freespirit Pub Company, owned by Mark Higgs.

As well as a restaurant and four-star accommodation, The 17th-century Castle at Edgehill is also home to the new Pinnock Gin micro-distillery and Castle Gin School.

The Castle restaurant is currently open Monday-Friday 12-2.30pm and 6-8.30pm; Saturday 12-8.30pm and Sunday 12-4pm. Afternoon Tea is also available, by pre-order only, Monday-Friday between 3-5pm.
