ONE of Rugby’s most popular watering holes has been given a farmyard makeover for its agriculturally themed beer festival.

‘On the farm’, The Merchants beer festival, will run from this Monday until Monday, April 25.

Fun and games include Dr Busker on Monday; Dukes Jetty on Tuesday; Danny Bailie on Wednesday; a hog roast on Thursday and a ‘really Good Friday’ to start off the Easter weekend. On Saturday there will be a St George’s fancy dress party and on Easter Sunday visitors can enjoy a Sunday lunch and the pub will be open late. On Monday there will be only one thing left to do - drink the barn dry. For more information visit
