What we're about

Welcome to St Albans Pub Goers!
Our group will be indulging in the best, no nonsense pubs St Albans has to offer. It's for friendly people who want to get together and socialise over a drink in a decent pub.
Where will we go?
Our pubs of choice will:

> * Not be bars. We're after places with a bit of character, history and interest in them.
> Be quiet enough we can actually hear each other talk (unless we're going for pub band, in which case all bets are off). Actually, we do bands
> Have a respectable range of drinks – so that's proper beer, interesting wines & ciders. But if soft drinks are your thing then that's OK too.

In general, we will avoid:

> * Plastic pubs
> Pubs/Bars with TVs (though turned off is acceptable)
>

So, to give you a feel, some of the ones I'm thinking of for starters (not a full list):

> * Farmers Boy
> Lower Red Lion
> White Hart Tap
> White Lion
> Six Bells
> * Robin Hood
> * Garibaldi
> * The Boot
> * Mad Squirrels
>
> *
> * What sort of people should come?

Everyone!

St Albans Pub Goers are friendly people that are happy to chat about anything and everything. I'll always endeavour to make sure new (and nearly new) attendees get introduced to people – so, please make everyone welcome and don’t' be afraid to start randomly chatting to stranger (and be ready for people to do that to you too )

Any rules?
Due to the nature of some of the pubs (i.e. relatively small) I will sometimes limit numbers for a given event. Sorry about that. Obviously, these are public houses, so, that doesn’t actually stop anyone from turning up. However, I want to make sure the landlords/ladies are happy to see us and that we don’t crowd out everyone else in the pub (or, indeed, ourselves). So, please bear that in mind.

Also, with groups of medium numbers it's more important that your RSVPs are accurate. So, please:

  • Only RSVP "Yes", if you intend to come (i.e. not waiting for a 'better offer')
    Should your plans change (which is fine) please update you're RSVP as soon as possible so someone else gets chance to attend.

Cheers
Pete

Pub Goers - Blacksmiths Arms (with live band)

Needs a location

Hello all,
Many of you will have seen Swanvesta Social Club (Latin, 10 piece). Thy're good fun playing an range of Latin style covers. As they put it "We play a unique Anglo Cuban crossover style with takes on familiar and not so familiar songs - always in party style. As a recent review put it: "think a big band crossover between the Cuban Brothers and Madness".
More details here: https://www.lemonrock.com/swanvesta

I friend of the group (Kevin) will be playing in the band for the first time, so it seems a good time to see them.

They are on at 9pm. I've put the start time for the event as 8.30 to give time for anyone who plays to see St Albans Fireworks display (https://www.enjoystalbans.com/event/st-albans-fireworks-spectacular-2/ ). That starts at 7.30, probably runs for 30 mins, then dash to Blacksmiths. (Forgive me if I'm slightly late if fireworks are delayed)

I reckon there's no chance of a seat - So, be ready to stand up to see the band.

I shall be wearing the identifiable top shown in the photos section for this event.

Hope to see you there!

As always, any trouble finding us -[masked]
