    After much deliberation, it’s been decided to move away from the Whitsun Bank Holiday this year and bring the date forward one week, so that our party can celebrate this year’s royal wedding. On Saturday, 19th of May Prince Harry will be marrying Meghan Markle in Windsor at midday. So watch the service on the telly before coming down to the White Horse Inn to celebrate in style. It’s even possible that the royal couple might drop in to see us! More details soon, but put the date in your diary and spread the word.
