Meath pub looking for Guinness and gin tasters
A family-owned pub is looking for tasters to make sure their beverages are up to pre-Covid standards ahead of reopening in the coming weeks.
The Royal Meath in Navan, Co Meath has been inundated with hundreds of offers from connoisseurs willing to try its Guinness and sample its new gin menu for free since it put up the post across its social media platforms on Friday.
Owner Michelle Geraghty said: “Prior to reopening, we are looking for people to make sure our Guinness is up to its usual excellent standard and that our new gin menu is perfect.
“We are looking for 10 people to bring a friend for a free evening on us.”
It’s not just the drink that the lucky tasters will get to sample but also a range of pizzas that will be on offer from the new kitchen installed at the pub, which has been owned by the Geraghty family for over 50 years.
“We are really excited about reopening but we are not going to open until October 1 because we want to make sure that things are just right.
"That’s why we are looking for connoisseurs of Guinness and gin to help us out so we can be sure our products are of the same high standard we offered six months ago.
“We want to make sure not only is the building compliant with all Covid practices but that the beverages are to a similar high standard.
"The tasters will also get to sample our new pizza range ahead of opening so we can tweak the menu, according to the feedback.
“We have had hundreds of applicants so far so there are obviously a lot of experts out there.”
