QUAIRADING HOTEL: The hotel dining room was opened on the 28th Feb, and since then it has been slow but steady. Bookings are preferred, as, if you were to show up and there was a function happening, I would hate to spoil your night out. The comments on the dining room have been positive, and you're always welcome to express your opinion! This Friday, 20th March, there will be a live band at the pub....The Vans.....Original Indie Rock. They're gaining a following in Perth, and I thought it'd be nice to say "They played at our Quairading Pub before they became big!" There will not be a cover charge, but if you're under 25, have your ID ready to show, because this is an 18+ event. All juveniles will be refused entry without exception. Band starts at 8.30, and they'll wrap it up at 11.30. Why not book to have tea in the dining room before the band starts - they're eating there, too! Frock Friday for April will fall on Good Friday; therefore there will be no Frock Friday until the first week of May. The hotel will keep its regular hours through the Easter break, with the exception of Good Friday when the pub will not be open at all. Don't forget Happy Hour at 5.30 and the Meat Raffle drawn at 7.30 then The Vans at 8.30 all on this Friday. Come out to your local, where there are no strangers - just people you haven't met yet.
