Ray's Cocktail Night at Grey Gables Ray's Cocktail Night at Grey Gables

Wednesday night is our informal Cocktail night at Grey Gables. I do hope you can join me! There will be wonderfully exotic cocktails and I’m planning to bring a bit of much needed atmosphere and sparkle to the place.

We’ve knocked up a brand new cocktail menu thanks to our Twitter and Facebook regulars. If you have any more recipe suggestions, post them below and I’ll get the barman to add them to the menu.

So come along and step outside your comfort zone!

    New cocktail, The Martin Gibson. A Drink in the traditional Hurry up, and wait style. Just make sure that you put it on the bill, that never gets paid. Then call whoever in, at the least convenient times.

    Sorry, this business with Kathy and Martin is no longer believable. Martin has breached so many labour laws, not to mention that 'dont worry your pretty little head' comment a while ago. Moreover, Kathy must know that he is answerable to the committee that appointed him. This has gone on too long for it to make any real sense. The script writers are just being lazy. Richard

    I think it's brilliant that you've brought in Gordon Brittas from the much loved Brittas Empire to run Grey Gables in Caroline's absence. I hope we may look forward to more cameos by characters from other sit-coms. I'd like to suggest Mr Rigsby from Rising Damp as Darrell's landlord when he get's off the street. With a visiting Shula as the Miss Jones character the consequences could be hilarious. But I'm afraid whoever you've got doing Blakey from On the Buses as Martin at the golf club has completely mis-read the role.
