A very happy St David’s Day from all the team here.
We are celebrating our Welsh roots proudly and loudly this week with some very special Welsh menus.
We all know that Saint David's Day is the feast day of St David, the patron saint of Wales. But did you know that it used to be a national holiday? The first day of March was chosen in remembrance of the death of Saint David as he died on that day in 589. The date was declared a national day of celebration within Wales in the 18th century and for centuries was a bank holiday for all. Sadly this tradition stopped in the 20th century.
