Here is this week’s Good Times column.

The Junction

There have been numerous calls put in to the Good Times column over a banner displayed at The Junction public house at the junction of Toothill Bank and Church Lane, Rastrick, and its current closure (at the time of going to press).

The banner stated the pub is under new management and would re-open Wednesday of this week with manager Phil at the helm.

Landlord Steve Ingle, aka DJ Zingy, said: “It’s all a little complicated at the moment and I myself could have the pub open again at the weekend, but I will inform you as soon as everything has been sorted between myself and the brewery and the interested parties.” So watch this space next week.

Cedar Court

The Cedar Court hotel at Ainley Top has spent several months working on a new restaurant that is open to non-residents as well as guests. Grill 54 is now open and is serving up a meat feast for lovers of rotisserie chicken, slow cooked tender pork ribs, sirloin steak or a simple yet very tasty British burger. They also have on offer all the traditional dishes such as curries and lasagne! On a Sunday they can offer up for a family of four a whole rotisserie chicken with all the traditional Sunday roast mashings for £24.50. Definitely somewhere new to try out!
