Hundreds of people turned out to enjoy an annual beer festival.

The Shoulder of Mutton in Weldon held its third annual beer festival at the weekend and welcomed more than 300 visitors, who drank about 2,000 pints of real ale and cider.

Campaign for Real Ale member David Fursdon said: “The pub hosts, their staff and regulars all came together to make the third Shoulder of Mutton beer festival a big success.

“There have been many favourable comments which is very pleasing. The pub can be proud as a revitalised real ale hotspot and a popular community venue for the village and surrounding area.”

Ideas for events at the pub include Irish dancing and a live Irish band playing over the August Bank Holiday weekend as well as a trip to the Potbelly Brewery in Kettering.
