Boxing Day

Boxing Day in Clayton Le Woods

Boxing Day .. All the presents unwrapped, the last slice of turkey eaten and now it’s time to relax and spend time with friends and family.

The origins of Boxing Day can be traced back to the Victorian era were it was traditionally a day off for servants. They would received a  ‘Christmas Box’ to take home containing gifts, bonuses and sometimes leftover food. December 26th is also the feast day of Saint Stephen, the patron saint of horses, which is why Boxing Day has come to be associated with horse racing and fox hunting. But throughout the years it has always been a special time to gather your friends and family together.

Our wonderful dining area has enough room to cater for the whole family and our team of chefs will be cooking some fabulous dishes with something for everyone.

We are currently taking bookings for boxing day. Call us on 01772 330 215 or book online here.

Clocks back

Clock this! It’s that time of the year to put your clocks back!

The good news is that you’ll get an extra hour in bed on a Sunday morning. However the bad news is that the nights are drawing in ever-quicker.

We know how easy it is to forget so we thought we would give you a friendly reminder to put your clocks back 1 hour as daylight saving officially ends at 2am on the last Sunday in October (30th October).

The idea of moving the clocks forward during the summer and then back again was first proposed in parliament in 1907. Later, in the Second World War clocks were put forward an hour to boost production in factories and so that workers could get back home before the blackout.
