The Blue Mugge

 
 

The pub was purchased in 1976 by Geoff and Celia Harrison. In 1979 they changed the name from the The Queens Arms to give it it’s unique name ‘The Blue Mugge’, after Geoff found the original ‘Blue Mugge’ in the attic and was informed of the history of the Blue Mugge and it’s place in ‘The Blue Mugge Room’, a room that was a male only room.


A visitor wishing to join the regulars in ‘The Blue Mugge Room’ would be informed that he had to buy the inhabitants of the room a drink, this was a test of character, as if the person agreed, the male occupants would produce a glass that was only a third of a pint.


The pub is now in it’s 34th year of trading since being brought by the Harrison family and is well known for it’s well priced home cooked food, a regular entry into the good Beer guide, top football side and a great across the board clientele, creating a homely atmosphere.
