January Hunt Meet

The Duke of Wellington Inn hosted a very successful joint meet of the Goathland and Glaisdale Hunts on the first Saturday of the New Year. A large field met on the village green opposite the Inn and members of the two hunts and the many gathered followers were liberally served with complimentary glasses of port, brandy and whisky from the Inn’s cellars.

Guest Ale Gathering Storm

“Gathering Storm” from Leeds Brewery is back as our current guest ale.

At 4.4% ABV this traditional stout is always very popular and the three nines in the cellar will soon be supped up. The combination of dark roasted malts and subtle hops give this robust stout a rich finish.

Danby Onion Club

The Danby Onion Club held their annual show at the Duke of Wellington Inn on Sunday the 6th of October. There were twenty four entries and the onions were judged by Danby Show judge Graham Watson from Ainthorpe.

Waterloo Day at Danby Beacon

Danby Beacon was lit on Tuesday the 18th of June to commemorate the victory of the Allied forces at the Battle of Waterloo. The weather conditions were perfect - warm still evening with clear skies and no rain.

Harry Graham, who instigated the modern Beacon project, lit Danby Beacon at 10 pm. Harry and his wife June celebrated with a glass of champagne and the gathering enjoyed drinks and sandwiches from the back of the Duke of Wellington Land Rover.

Thanks to Tony O’Donnell, a well known violin maestro, who had entertained superbly earlier at the Inn and to John Thompson and his banjolele.
