Wetherspoon pubs across Wales marked St David’s Day in style, with various events and the celebration of all things Welsh.
The national saint’s day of Wales (1 March) was toasted at The Central Hotel, in Shotton, Flintshire, with a pint of St David’s Ale, produced by Cardiff-based SA Brain & Co Ltd.
Bar associates Nicki Murray and Sarah Warman are pictured with a pint of the patron saint’s brew and a Welsh curry Y Ddraig Fflamllyd. The pub was decorated with Welsh flags and also served traditional Welsh dishes from the menu.
The national day of Wales was also celebrated in style in Weymouth by pub manager Kim Newstead. The Swan served cockles, lava bread and Welsh cakes for breakfast, as well as lamb cawl and Welsh pantry faggots for lunch.
The pub, which was decked out in daffodils for the day, also held a charity raffle for the local Holy Trinity Church, raising £400. Kim said: “We held a St David’s Day event last year, which proved extremely popular, so we decided to do it again and, hopefully, it will
become an annual celebration at our pub.”
