NEW SHOW!

HUT Exhibition Opening 6pm

Meet illustrators Jay Cover, Jim Stoten and Ben Newman who rented a studio space together here in the Beacon garden which they named ‘The HUT’. To counteract their jobs as commercial artists, the purpose of HUT studio is to create purely analogue visual manifestations with no monetary goal in mind.

The debut exhibition marks one year since HUT studio started and will feature a selection of the paintings and brain mucus on the walls of the Beacon bar and dining room. Come on over to the private view and get your eyeballs bent out of shape.

From the kitchen will be veg chilli, coriander rice, sour cream, cheddar, summer slaw and hand cut tortilla chips (vegan option always available), we also have Butterscotch pudding with fresh cream.

And from the bar, seasonal cocktails, mocktails, beers and wines!

Sunday Lunch 12-4
