Saturday Session – Verdant Brewery

This is a pretty simple idea. We have a cool skittles alley with it’s own keg bar. We also have a cool sound system. We like beer and we like music. One Saturday each month we’ll fill the taps of our keg bar with some delicious beer in keeping with a certain theme. Then we’ll play some great music. You can drink the delicious beer and listen to the great music. If you really want to, you can have a deliriously happy dance while you drink the delicious beer and listen to the great music. That’s about it. For the November Saturday session, our theme will be….Verdant Brewery!! Saturday Session starts at 3pm.

The Leftover Pie Lottery

According to the ancient English proverb, “the early bird catcheth the worm”. According to Diageo and Guinness’s marketing department however, “good things come to those who wait”. Difficult to work out which one is correct – the intellectual and philosophical heavyweights of 17th century England or the brewers of an iconic dry stout that has been responsible for making Irishmen and women late for work for over 250 years? It’s time for you to find out every other Monday night by entering our Leftover Pie Lottery. Allow us to explain. Each weekend we purchase a set number of delicious fresh pies from Plenty Pies of Woodchester. If we have a busy weekend we tend to have a few leftover, uncooked and uneaten. If we have a quiet weekend we can have a lot leftover. Previously we either cooked and ate these pies ourselves or we gave them to friends and family. Following a few quiet weekends this strategy has taken it’s toll on our waistbands and we’ve had a rethink. From now on, every other Monday night leftover pies (still in date and kept and served to professional food hygiene standards) will be available to you from 5pm, served with chips and gravy at a bargain price of £5. It gets better. From 6pm the same dish is available for £4. From 7pm £3, 8pm £2 and from 9pm just £1 for pie, chips and gravy! “Sounds great” we hear you cry, “but why is it a lottery?” Well, to add a bit of fun into the event, we’re not going to tell you how many pies we have available at any point either before or during the night. Your gamble therefore is when to place your order. Either you can be the early bird and secure your worm (or pie in this case) or you can hold out for an absolute bargain but risk the pies selling out and not getting any worms (pies) at all! This will be a bit of fun so best taken it in the spirit it’s intended. If you’re someone who gets ‘hangry’, this event probably isn’t for you. If you’re someone who writes furiously to Trip Advisor that you didn’t get a Cordon Bleu dining experience for your £4, this event is also not for you. If you’re someone who is up for a bit of fun and is willing to gamble for a bargain, we’ll see you at some point from 5pm for the Leftover Pie Lottery!

Live Music – The Holly Carter Blues Collective

Holly has wowed the Sally a few times now with her own brand of folk-blues fingerpicking musical magic. Each time she’s been so good we just had to book her up again. In order to save ourselves a lot of admin and Holly a lot of pestering, we’ve now just agreed to have Holly play here for you every first Thursday in the month. Each time however Holly will be joined by different members of her ‘blues collective’ to bring you an evening of the finest New Orleans blues, swing and Americana with a splash of country thrown in for good measure. Holly will host and curate a different ensemble of artists each month to give a fresh musical flavour as they take you on a journey through the finest beer-supping, hand-clapping, toe-tapping blues that neither Ham nor Berkeley has ever seen the likes of before! Music starts at 7.30pm.

Brace yourself for an exhilarating night of campness, singalongs and a celebration of the weird and wonderful mind of actor and writer Richard O’Brien. Audience participation is not encouraged…it is expected! Tickets are £7.50 and include a free tub of homemade popcorn, available behind the bar or online here (incurs a booking fee). See you there!

The Great Sally Alley Quiz

Remember all those terrible Zoom quizzes you had to do during lockdown? What were they all about?!? No dazzling selection of cask ales to lubricate the neurons, no chip butty at the end and a wonky internet connection that made it ten times longer than it should have been and more like a game of musical statues than a battle of the braincells. Paxman would have turned in his grave, if he wasn’t still alive.

Anyway, the good news is, the Sally Alley Quiz is back, replete with chip butties and beer!

Every second Thursday of every month we’ll invite a different quizmaster to ask you six rounds of different topics. They ask you questions, you try and answer them. The team with the most correct answers wins beer! Pretty simple really. We’re allowing teams of up to six people and entry fee is £4 per person.

This month’s quiz is is a journey, an adventure of discovery through the esoteric and niche, the unique and sometimes wacky but always fascinating worlds that lie behind the humble brown tourist sign. Hosted by brown sign enthusiast, foul-mouthed cockney barmaid and Miss January in the Dull Men’s Club Calendar 2017,  Amanda Howard, possible quiz topics include anything from lighthouses, museums, theme parks, deciduous (and non deciduous of of course) woodlands, secret nuclear bunkers, piers, rare breed farms and heavy horses as well as a whole host of other subjects you never thought you cared about.  Register your team for 7.45pm and the great quizzing commences at 8pm. Let’s get quizzical!

The Sally Christmas Market

After a year off (less said about that the better) the Sally Xmas Market returns! We’ll be packing our festive Christmas alley with the finest food, drink and craft producers Gloucestershire has to offer. This year we’re very excited to have a line up including Fresh Standard Brewery, Wild Cider Co, Mother Fudger, From Home, Lizzie Hammond Art, Cheeses of Gloucestershire and many more. Plus we’ll have mulled cider and a hot food stand. All this will be packed into our warm, festive skittles alley so you can shop whatever the weather. No only that but you get to do your Christmas shopping with a pint in your hand – now you can’t do that at Cribbs Causeway! Market runs 11am till 4pm – see you there.

Christmas Lunch at the Sally

Well, throughout the entire of 2021 we’ve muddled through without a chef. Thanks to Libby however, our queen of the kitchen, we’ve managed to keep you from starvation with a delicious snack menu of hot pies and chips. What to do about Christmas though? Well, in true Sally spirit one of our finest locals Jeanette has offered to step up to the hot plate and help us out. For one very special lunchtime, Jeanette (who you may remember as Pasty Palmer?!) will be cooking one of her sublime Christmas roasts with all the trimmings. “Helping” her out (hindering more likely) will be someone not exactly known for his culinary prowess, yep it’s Pete the Sally landlord! Don’t expect the most professional of food service (neither of us are professional chefs so why would you?). Anything the landlord cooks will probably be close to inedible (lumpy gravy and burnt carrots anyone?!) but anything Jeanette cooks will of course be delicious and just like the roast dinners you have at home. Taken in the spirit intended, it will be a lot of fun! As ever we aren’t taking bookings or reserving tables. Just rock up, grab a seat and we’ll muddle through the rest…..just like we have done for the whole of 2021!

Last Orders Picture House – Die Hard

The Last Orders Picture House is our very own cinema inside a pub! Yep, that’s right, kitted out with an insanely expensive cinema projector and sound system, super cool deckchairs, beanbag sofas and even a popcorn machine! Plus of course, one thing that Vue, Odeon, Cineworld and even your Amazon Prime subscription and front room can’t deliver on….EPIC beer and cider!! As well as an array of fresh foamy pints we’ll have popcorn, chocolate, sweets and ice cream to keep your tastebuds as entertained as you will be. Our last film before Christmas is a controversial choice (can it really be counted as a Christmas film?) but we don’t care! Christmas without Die Hard would be like turkey without stuffing. It’s a film that needs little introduction really, Bruce Willis leaping about a building in his bare feet shooting lots of bad guys, oh, and it’s set at Christmas time. ‘Nuff said – it rocks! Tickets are £7.50 each and include a free carton of homemade popcorn. We have only 23 tickets available so make sure you don’t miss out. Grab your tickets either online here (includes a booking fee) or from behind the bar. Film starts at 7.30pm promptly so please arrive in plenty of time to order any drinks/snacks and take your seats.  “Yippee-ki-yay motherf****r!”

Xmas Carols with the Woodford Silver Band

We have missed this event so, so much! Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas the annual carol singalong with the Woodford Silver Band at the Sally! Drunken Christmas singing that even Shane McGowan couldn’t match for sheer poignancy and loveliness…if not tunefulness. For obvious reasons last year was not possible but this year the W.S.B. and the Sally Choir are back, reunited once more. To give ourselves a bit more room and ventilation, this year the carols will be in our festive skittles alley. We need you, the Sally Choir, full of joy and singing your hearts out to kick off Christmas and to boot the preceding mess of 2021 back into touch where it belongs. Festive chorusing and carousing begins at 7pm. Let’s do this!
