Burns Night

Yet again Burns Night came and went almost as quickly as the whole of January !

Being fully booked for many months the night was eagerly anticipated and commenced with The Selkirk Grace prior to Head Chef, Emily Self, presenting the Haggis to the Strains of Highland Cathedral. Jamie Wright had the honour of Addressing the Haggis this year, which he did in a very professional and polished manner. In addition, he also performed a well informed and enjoyable Immortal Memory

Unfortunately Jan Edney was unable to attend this year, so The Toast to the Laddies and Lasses were incorporated in the one speech by our lovely Boss and Landlord (enough said !). Prior to the evening celebration finishing with a rousing Auld Lang Syne and, an even more rousing recital of 500 Miles. While not a Burns classic I am sure he would have approved…as he would have of the many drinks that followed !!!

Isle of Wight & Hampshire Air Rescue Service

Through our Tuesday night Quiz we have just raised and presented a cheque to the above Charity for £ 1,500.00 – yes, £ 1,500 !

The cheque was collected by local Ryland Lee, who appeared taken aback at the fact that a wee country pub could raise such an amount of money over 13 x weeks from £1 Quiz Entry Fees

Since 2008 our Customers, Suppliers and Staff have helped us raise over £ 250,000 for LOCAL Good Causes and Charities

A massive THANK YOU to everybody who has been involved- BUT BE WARNED, we’re now looking towards the £ 500,000 objective !

Bolton Arms arrives in Sri Lanka…


The Bolton Arms is reaching new Markets every day owing to people such as The Bolton Wanderers !

I, personally, do not believe we will benefit from an immediate influx of Sri Lankans – but, if we do, i’ll update you on our next post !!!

It started with an email and turned into £11,527 + an extension ?…

…and the wee one has now undergone her surgery, which we wait to hear the outcome of from her parents

The £11,527 raised by our regulars on Emmy’s Evening at the Bolton Arms was outstanding, which was topped off with the offer by local tradesmen on the night pledging to build her much needed Treatment Room at home, We await the final outcome !
