February 2022

Here is a round-up of the events at The Swan during February, 2022.

2nd Feb: Stammtisch

The Swan is unique in Windsor having our very own Stammtisch which meets on the first Thursday of the month. German speakers, both fluent and rusty, get together and practice their language skills over some wine and beer. Prost!

9th Feb: Quiz Night

The Swan's quiz night goes from strength to strength with 13 teams battling out a closely-fought contest this week. It needed a tie-break between the top 3 teams to settle it - with The Rogues eventually coming out on top. Led by our resident quizmaster Martin Payne, The Swan quiz takes place on the second & fourth Wednesdays of every month.

17th Feb: Bingo Night

We had a busy bar for the bingo, even those in for a quick drink got roped in along with the bar staff too.

22nd Feb: Cheese & Wine

The CheeeseMunger was back and had a fabulous selection of over nine different cheeses. There biscuits aplenty and some rather delicious premium chutneys which made the cheeses zing.

23rd Feb: Quiz Night

With Quiz questions on Flowers, Fives, Firsts, Films and February it was perhaps a surprise that we didn't have a Five Way tie for the winners. '3 Is The Magic Number' won after a tiebreak as they knew the total mileage of the M25. Better luck next time to those who made it to the medal podium, and all those who took part. We go again on Wed 9th March.

25th Feb: Coffee Morning

After a slow start, the place started to fill with the local community who came out to support Family Friends - thank you for taking the time. And a special huge thank you to all our bakers who donated their time, baking skills and cooking to the day to put on such a spread. Through this morning, we were able to donate £312 to Family Friends.
