The Dove & Rainbow, Hartshead Square, City Centre, continues to offer a varied range of real ales, with 10% off local brews for CAMRA members. As well as the handpulls and Westons/Thatchers Bag In Box ciders, there are also a selection of bottled ales, for when your favorite tipple isn’t currently available on draft, or when you fancy one to take home with you – currently including Hobgoblin, Trooper, Waggledance and Abbot Ale, as well as the local Farmers Stout.
Every other Tuesday hosts an Open Mic night which over the last few months has become a popular and established event, giving the customers a chance to have a sing, play, or just a beer and enjoy the talents of others. There is of course Live Music on various other nights, with the Dove playing host to a variety of local, national and international bands. Fridays and Saturdays there is a rock DJ, and on Sundays the Dove is available for private hire (no hire charge, but there may be a deposit, depending on the nature of your event) for birthdays and other celebrations, bands and charity events etc – just contact Dawn for more details if you have an event in mind.
