The rumour mill has been in overdrive around the Rastrick area, that Alan and Anne Sild had vacated the pub.

This is of course not true and in the next few weeks they are looking forward to celebrating a decade at the Rastrick Common-based pub, which in this day and age is a massive achievement.

“Its business as usual at The Globe and the Christmas menus are now available and we are taking bookings,” said Anne.

“We also have a wedding party on Saturday, October 12, so the restaurant is closed both lunch and evening on that day as it’s booked up.”

At The Beck Inn on Bradford Road, there will be an acoustic music event featuring a number of performers on Sunday.

Adrian Whitworth, who is now at the helm, is looking to have live music acts on the first and third Sunday of every month.

Starting at 4.30, the line up, many who have performed in some of the big folk clubs in the north, includes Keystone Acoustic, Steve Chapman Smith, Mick and Susie Darling, Chris Scarlett, Rum Doodle and Richie Schmarler.

This Sunday at The Railway and Commercial Inn, Brighouse, it’s an afternoon of rock and roll with Jiving Jeff from 2pm until 5pm. All are welcome.

Paul Haydock at the Armytage Arms, Clifton, has some new alcoholic cocktails for just £5.

Choose from Mojito, Cosmopolitan, Strawberry Martini, Strawberry Daiquiri or Cranberry Collins.

They are also serving four Sourz shots for £5. If that doesn’t take your fancy they also have offers for two Bombs for only £5. You can choose from a Glitter Bomb, Apple Bomb, Jägerbomb and Skittle Bomb. “It’s a perfect way to start your night out,” said Paul.

They also have a selection of bottled alcoholic drinks - two for £5.

Mark Feasey had his leaving party on Saturday evening at the Old Ship Inn, Brighouse, but it wasn’t until Monday that the pub was handed over to the new landlady Marsha Jones.

Settling in on her first week, we shall bring you more from the Old Ship in next week’s Echo.
