It’s shaping up to be a good ‘un this month isn’t it?!
It’s come around quickly again, but comedy you can find live comedy here at The Nog this Thursday – 5th December at 8pm.
We have the superb Gary Colman lined up to compere the show for us and we’re really looking forward to meeting some brilliant new acts. We’ll have the pleasure of seeing the talented Pete Dobbing, Haylie Fox, Becky Brunning, Tim O’Connor, Fitz (Daniel Fitzhenry), Bianca Arlette, John Wood, Wayne Beese and Russ Mulligan. What a bargain – all these acts for just a fiver! Now that’s what I call value for money!
So there you have it! Live comedy on your door step in Wincanton for a very reasonable £5 per ticket, available in advance from the bar or on the door. Just think, you could witness the next Al Murray or Jimmy Carr!
As always, if you require further information please give us a call on 01963 32998. Looking forward to seeing you soon!

We would like to extend a warm welcome to all the Hogswatch visitors who are coming to Wincanton this weekend. We hope you have a fantastic time in our lovely town!
If you enjoy your ales, you are in for a treat this weekend as we have some particular tasty ales to tickle your taste buds! We also currently have on offer 7 farmhouse ciders, 2 “fizzy” ciders and a fantastic range of lagers and beers. If you prefer something without the alcohol, then you will be pleased to know that we haven’t forgotten you! Amongst the drinks on offer are a particularly scrumptious range of juices from Orchard Pig! Delish!
Our Sunday carvery is delicious - and Will's Yorkie puds are legendary!
If you’re looking for a bite to eat, we have a brilliant range of home cooked food for all members of the family, and it’s served until 9pm every day of the week (10pm on Friday & Saturday nights). To top your weekend off though, don’t forget we serve a delicious carvery every Sunday 12-3pm. Will’s home made Yorkie puds are out of this world!!
Whatever you do though, and wherever you go, here’s hoping you have a fantastic Hogwatch! Enjoy
Steak & chips - my ultimate comfort food!
Cold wintery weather (in my humble opinion) calls for tasty, home made comfort food, and our specials this weekend certainly hit the mark!
Enjoy fish? Then perhaps our prosciuttto roasted halibut with fresh thyme & butter sauce and served with dauphinoise potatoes & samphire grass will be what tickles your taste buds!
Other specials on the menu this weekend include:
Roast loin of venison with port & plum sauce served with sauteed
potatoes & broccoli
Butternut squash goulash served with buttered pappardelle noodles
Pan fried chicken supreme served on a bed of wild rice with a mushroom sauce
Braised lamb shank served with creamy mashed potato & broccoli
We hope to see you soon. In the meantime, wrap up warm – it’s cold out there! Brrrrrrr….

My fellow crafty friends, I saw this and wanted to share it with you! It gives me (a relatively new – well, second time around knitter) great hope for my future projects!
Don’t forget us “Needle Nuts” meet every Monday evening from about 8pm here at The Nog. Feel free to bring along whatever your current crafty project is, and settle down for a bit of a chin wag with some like minded people!
Whether you’re a complete novice, or an old hand at this lark – you’re all very welcome to join us!
If you would like any further information please just give Amy a bell on 01963 32998.
