A few events to take note of as they sell out quick –

As part of the Hertford food and drink festival weekend we have a Whisky tasting night on the 12th and Ginstronomy on the 13th October.

Just because we love cheese and wine we are hosting our first cheese and wine night with the fabulous and award winning cheese monger Toby, from The Cheese plate in Buntingford – if you’ve never been – you must! On the 23rd November.

For Halloween we have a one off Harry Potter quiz.

Check individual events listings for more details, but booking is advised for all.

We have also launched an awesome new acoustic night every Thursday ‘Rhythms by the river’ (excluding last Thursday of the month – Music quiz)

Our fabulous new space to the rear of our current restaurant area is complete! Pop in and talk to us about organising a party – includes private outdoor courtyard. As ever our upstairs space is available for corporate events or training days.

We also have a new cosy outdoor space with light, sound & warmth for all our smokers.

Come check them out soon.

As many of our staff are students we bid some old faces farewell for now and welcome some new faces to the bar – no heckling the newbies please.

As ever Andy’s music quiz is the last Thursday of every month and the Barge brainbuster quiz is every Sunday. Both start at 9pm and are still only £2 per player to play. With extended bigger, better and louder quizzes every bank holiday weekend. If Harry Potter goes well, keep your eyes peeled for some more specialist quizzes to come.

Classic album Sundays every Sunday from 6-9pm, requests considered!

Annual events include Easter Duck race, Spring Fling, Crayfish fest and the Musical mystery tour, will post updates on those nearer the time.

Don’t forget to give us a like, hashtag, check in or a comment, you’ll find us on Twitter @OldBargeDuchess, as well as Facebook & Instagram.

See you soon for a beer xxx
