16 pubs across England have followed the lead of local pub The Queens Head in Pinner to serve a ‘Suffragette Ale’ this International Women’s Day.
Devised by the licensee of the The Queens Head, Sean White, the ‘Suffragette Ale’ was first served in the pub for International Women’s Day back in 2018.
Now 16 pubs across England from Wine Vaults in Banbury, North Oxfordshire to The Ostrich in Castle Acre, Norfolk have followed the lead of The Queens Head and are also serving Sean’s ‘Suffragette Ale’ in their pubs this International Women’s Day.
In addition to serving the ‘Suffragette Ale’ this International Women’s Day, The Queens Head in Pinner has also marked the occasion by providing drinks and food offers including a free glass of Prosecco and free deserts with all mains for groups of women only who go to the pub. The pub has also decorated its notice boards with Suffragette memorabilia and erected the Suffragette flag outside its front.
The Queen’s Head is Pinner’s oldest Inn and a serial winner of industry awards including Greene King Pub of the Year in 2018 and Best Bar None Harrow Pub of the Year 2019.
Sean White, Licensee for The Queens Head in Pinner, said: “I am delighted that publicans across England are following our lead and serving our very own Suffragette Ale this International Women’s Day.
“As the heart of communities, it is important pubs play their part in marking these important occasions. That’s why we are arranging drinks and food offers on the day to create a welcoming space for those celebrating International Women’s Day.”
Tim Sparrow, Business Development Manager for Greene King Pub Partners, said: “It is fantastic to see other pubs across England get behind the Suffragette Ale and support International Women’s Day. I would like to personally thank Sean for letting other pubs use the ale so they too can mark the occasion properly.”
