Between the 1st and the 12th of December, each day we will be featuring a local business who have kindly donated a prize for the competition. Each day we will be asking a question inspired by the business and at the end of the twelve days you will be invited to submit your answers. We will then select one lucky winner who will take home all twelve prizes, just in time for Christmas.
The Marmion pub can be found on Marmion Road (funnily enough). This little gem underwent a bit of a facelift and reopened to the public back in February 2014. What was formerly two bars is now one and much of the credit for the layout must go to interior designer Lorraine Murphy who designed and managed the project.
The bar offers a whole range of beverages although they do specialise in gin, stocking around forty different varieties. They also offer a wide range of food on their menu, I’m a personal fan of their fillet steak and London Pride ale battered pollock and chips. If meat isn’t your thing or you have other dietary requirements then The Marmion still has plenty to offer.
The manager Matthew Chapman has been incredibly generous and donated a three course meal for two with a glass of prosecco thrown in. To be in with a chance to win the prize then you must correctly answer the question below.
Q6) The name gin is a shortened form of the older English word genever, related to the French word genièvre and the Dutch word jenever. These different terms all come from a particular berry which gin is derived from. What berry am I referring to?
