NEW LANDLADY PLANS TO PUT OLD FAVOURITE ON PUB MENU
The newest landlady in Brigg is keen to put a popular and traditional old favourite on the menu in due course.
Alia Harris, who has taken over at the Britannia on Wrawby Street, is looking to put food back on the menu at the Wrawby Street hostelry in the next few months.
And stew will be among her range of pub grub and bar meals, along with burger and a pint, pizza and a pint, and other good value dishes.
Alia's aim it to have winter warmers like stew on offer before the cold weather takes hold.
On the same timescale she is also reintroducing Sunday dinners - not only a roast of the day but also options like home-made steak pie and bangers and mash.
Having succeeded Shane Garrett, Alia is continuing the popular karaoke/discos on Friday and Saturday nights, supplemented by a live act once a month.
There's a free jukebox and free pool on offer every Monday, with a team from the pub taking part in a local quiz league from Monday, September 16.
Two pool teams operate on Tuesdays, with a darts side entered in one of the local leagues.
Alia, who used to live in Somerby, was educated at Caistor Yarborough School.
She came here six years ago and worked behind the bar at Brigg Town Football Club's Hawthorns venue.
She started bar work at the Britannia in May 2018 and recently took sole charge of licensed premises for the first time.
