Bastille Day 2013 - We Raised £1200 for Shelter From The Storm!
We moved 3 tonnes of sand, 21 trestle tables and 80 chairs. We hung 75 meters of bunting and built 7 gazebos. We served 50 for the sit down banquet and went through 8 kilos of crevettes, 80 crab claws, 8 kilos of sliced saucisson and ham and goodness knows how much fish stew and ratatouille! 30 cases of Breton Cider, 14 cases of Gallia Beer, 24 Bottles of St Germain Elderflower liqueur, 12 cases of Cremant D'Alsace
and 60 Kilos of Ice...
Thank you to all that helped make this years Bastille Day the best ever. The weather was on our side making it a great family day out!
A special shout out to Sheila and her team of volunteers from SFTS without whom the day could not have been so community spirited. Thanks also to the amazing Francis of The Frantastics who entertained us into the early evening with some sing along classics! If you didn't make it and would like to support Shelter From the Storm you can do so through their website here

Camille is back in the kitchen...
After a 3 year break setting up a cocktail bar, collaborating on a hotel bar and being altogether a bit more glamourous, Camille has rejoined the kitchen team part time. This is partly due to some team members moving to pastures new but mainly because she has missed it and wants to get back to where she is happiest ... covered in garlic and goosefat!
Beers from Greenwich Meantime Brewery...
The Charles Lamb has been trying to buy as much locally as possible. Meantime Brewery in Greenwich are now supplying us with both our draught Lagers, one of which is known as The Charles Lamb Lager.
This means that all our draught products are British brands and brewed in the UK, 50% of these come from within the M25.
If you have any suggestions or comments about our beers please speak to the bar staff or email us on drink@thecharleslambpub.com

The Charles Lamb House Wines!
Camille and Hobby went to visit our lovely friends at Domaine St Hilaire in the Languedoc (you may well have sampled their wares here already) and have selected three delicious wines - red, white and rosé - which are being produced exclusively for us to become the Charles Lamb's offical house wines.
The label has been designed for us by Rob Ryan.

The Charles Lamb Patron's List...
As you may or may not know, we like our wine here at the Charles Lamb. Camille has spent the last few months cherry picking a few favourites from our suppliers to keep a limited supply of special wines in the cellar. They are available by the bottle only and a mixture of traditional classics and unusual grape varieties from the old world growers... they won't be written up on the board so please ask at the bar to see this list.
