Winter Cocktail Party!

An evening of cocktails & dancing awaits at our Winter Cocktail Evening!
We will be joined by talented mixologists from The Cocktail Social who have developed a special cocktail menu for the evening.
On arrival you will receive a Prosecco Cocktail & canapés to enjoy (included with your ticket) whilst you peruse our cocktail menu. Our DJ will be playing a great mix of current and classic floor fillers throughout the evening with dancing positively encouraged!

Plus 10% of the ticket price will be passed on to your nominated schools parent school association, so a great opportunity for fundraising too!

I am delighted (& relieved) to announce that I have exchanged contracts to purchase the freehold of the Papermakers ! I hope you will all agree that it’s fantastic news and the future of Plaxtols pub is now secure ! Please spread the good news as I think a lot of people believe we are closed already !

Hoping to make some changes over the coming weeks and months, already we are now open from 5pm daily so if you fancy a swift drink or 3 on the way home from work why not pop in !  Also hoping to open some mornings for coffees and breakfast, and look out for our loyalty card coming soon !

For the time being we will be closed Mondays & Tuesdays, as soon as we find another chef to join the team when we will get back to re opening on Tuesdays.

Hope to see you soon at the Papermakers !

Kind Regards

Good news…we are open until Christmas!

You may have heard that The Papermakers Arms was due to close in September but we have managed to negotiate that we will stay open until Christmas Day! Hopefully we will be able to stay open after Christmas if Enterprise Inns become realistic about asking price for the pub.

This means you can once again enjoy our festive party menu throughout December and of course the Christmas Day feast.

We are already getting booked up for December including Christmas Day so please book early to avoid disappointment.

We’ve had some amazing feedback from new head chef Tim. If you haven’t tried his food yet, you’re in for a real treat!

So rest assured its business as usual!
