It’s warming up and the beer garden is blooming. We promise a calming sun-spot with shade if you require it. We back on to Roots and Shoots which is a nature reserve, so it really feels like you are far from the madding crowd. Just watch out for the wild-life.

 

 

DAY OF THE DEAD!! SUN 30TH OCT

SAM_8498

Come and celebrate the dead with the living on Sunday 30th from 4pm.

Clare will be serving Enchiladas from 4-6pm  – fresh and fine as can be, and we would love you to bring mementos to place on our SHRINE to honour and remember the dead.

Mementos can be anything that  reminds you of your dead family member, friend or special someone. Food to help them on their way, a line of poetry they enjoyed, a fragment of clothing…just note that we will be burning the items on the shrine on All Saints Day, Tues 1st Nov,  to assist the souls on their journey to the spirit realm. You are more than welcome to join us in doing this on Tuesday evening.

The Oxymoron has come to the conclusion that it would be a good idea to let people come and use the kitchen. It is here and it is for hire any day of the week. If you are having a party with lots of guests and a guaranteed booze-up we will even let you use it for free! Please contact Lisa or William on asilhendry@gmail.com to enquire.

The Kernel is Here!

SAM_7507 SAM_7510

Yes we are now stocking Kernel, sublimely tasty ale brewed in Bermondsey.

At the moment we have Pale ale (Huell melon), Dry stout and India Pale ale (Mosaic citra amarillo). They are settling in very well and seem to enjoy being both indoors and out.

Music and Mayhem

We have had a busy time at The Oxymoron entertaining our customers with the best bands out there.

Dakota Jim and Louisa Jones have made regular monthly appearances and have completely won our hearts and minds with their charmingly outrageous folkiness. They have even brought along their friends – The Relatives – who defy description and must be heard. This is what happens when cunning minds get hold of a banjo….

I will be posting future dates.

On Sundays from 5pm we have Emrys of The Soul Immigrants hosting a jazz session. He is pictured below with Marcello the chef having a bit of a jam while the customers go hungry (only joking). Please feel free to turn up with your instrument of choice and give Emrys a run for his money – it’s fun and everybody claps!!

The not so Secret Garden

We do have a back garden at The Oxymoron. It’s a gem of a space on a sunny day and even on a gloomy day it has a lot of potential. At the moment it is having a bit of a makeover presided over by a Totem Pole that just Sprung up one Spring morning.SAM_7247
