Light at the End of The Tunnel

After a year so challenging, so unlike any other it at last seems that with the increasing numbers of vaccinations and with the approaching summer that there may be a little glimmer of light at the end of the lockdown tunnel.


We have of course been blessed at Wishful during this diabolical pandemic, initially through being able to stay open continuously (one way or another!) over the past 12 months but more incredibly to have enjoyed the unstinting, unwavering support from you, our customers new and old. We are so very grateful, and we thank you.

So, as we look towards some form of normality returning in the weeks ahead, we wanted to share with you some of the new and good things you can expect to see at WD going forward to brighten up the beery days to come!

  • Managers Special Brew – launched a week or two ago with the marvellous Mantra from Vibrant Forest you a can expect to see a special beer being offered for a VERY special price a couple of times a month (if we can get the buying department on the case to find the beer!). This week we are delighted to offer as the Managers Special Brew the glorious Granola a 6% peach and apricot NEIPA loaded with oats, milk and honey (4+ on Untappd) from the unrivalled Unbarred Brewery. Normally priced at £7+ a pint this will be on the pumps as you read this for just £5.50 a pint!
  • More Beer on Draft – but that would mean another beer pump surely? Indeed, and we have one ready to go just as soon as we welcome you back for beer from the bar! This will allow us to welcome the Summer in with a wider range of fruit beers saisons, goses, sours, wheat beers, barrel aged, international beers, maybe even a keg cider or two… just more variety, variety, variety!
  • Al Fresco Beer – subject to the necessary licence approvals we plan to have some tables in the suspended loading bay in front of WD from mid-April for you to enjoy the rays as the world passes you by chilled beer in hand just waiting to be supped!
  • More Tables and Stools – in fact, six more tables with stools to match are already in situ just waiting for the thirsty to be back in the bar from, we hope, mid-May.


We have many, many more ideas for innovation and improvement in the coming months and as the way out of lockdown becomes clearer. But we will only change to allow us to advance and enhance – so as we continue in the Quest for the Best. The Quest remains, and will always be, our overriding driving principle which is now a little clearer to us as that glimmering end-of-tunnel light starts to shine.
