New Year’s Eve – now booking for dinner, bed and breakfast

We’d love to invite you to celebrate the New Year with us at the Geese and Fountain. We have a delicious menu of locally-sourced seasonal delights, and fabulous entertainment in the shape of Groove Merchants – who are bringing some very special guests, guaranteed to keep the place bouncing until 2017 is well and truly in.

You’re welcome to join us for drinks, and the music, with no cover charge or ticket price. We’ll be open all day on New Year’s Eve as normal, with Groove Merchants due to start around 9pm. Music, dancing and general merriment will continue until the last of us stagger home.

If you’d like to join us for our very special New Year’s Eve dinner, advance booking is absolutely essential. Numbers for dinner will be strictly limited, with tables available from 6pm until 8.30pm. Please call us on 01476 870350 to make your reservation.
