Thursday 29th April
We might not have the biggest beer garden in town but we reckon it's the best. Still a few tables left for Saturday 1pm and Sunday 2pm. In the words of that late, great quiz show host Leslie Crowther 'come on down'
Women and girls of Barrow and surrounds, want to get involved in one of the fastest growing sports in the UK?
Women’s rugby is great fun, it gets you active and, like all rugby, it’s good for the soul.
I’m trying to gauge interest by putting together a 7’s team to represent Furness over the summer.
So, if you’re 17 or over fancy getting involved, getting fit and having fun please get in touch. If we get enough interest I’ll arrange a training session,
Saturday 24th April
All tables for today now reserved. There will be additional seating but it's going to be very much on a first come first served basis
Tuesday 20th April
So busy was last Saturday that we've had to have a rethink about how we can remain open and still be Covid compliant. As a result we will be operating a table reservation system. Unlike some places, if you reserve a table it's yours for the day but we expect you to be there pretty much from the word go IE 1pm. Assuming we haven't sold out of beer we will close around 8-
Payment by card is preferred although cash will be accepted.
Neither Pablo nor Pedro Lovegroove are available this week, however, we are pleased to announce that their parasitic triplet brother, Delgado, a source of much pain to their long suffering mother, has been released from Guantanamo Bay and is raring to go.
Thursday 1st April
How much fun was that!! Great to be back to rugby, with the outrageous dummies, miraculous pick ups, coach killer kicking attempts and laughs all around, same again next week.
Saturday 27th March
Hey everyone, as of Monday we’re able to commence rugby activities, WooHoo.
We’ll be up and running on Wednesday at 6pm for a friendly game of touch rugby.
If you want to catch up with some friends for a bit of a run out, or come down to the club for the first time, everyone is welcome provided you don’t have any COVID-
After the cancellation of rugby last year I can’t wait to get back on the pitch, please come along and lift the lockdown blues.
Tuesday 16th March
As the latest lockdown draws to a close our thoughts turn towards getting rugby underway again.
Training can start anytime from 29th March, so we’re holding a touch rugby session at 6pm on Wednesday 31st March.
We play in Cumbria division 1 and are looking for players for the 2021/22 season and also any rugby activity we can get underway this season.
As well as an excellent social scene, typified by the vibrant summer beer garden, we are ambitious on the rugby field. We’re building a team and environment that will help all players to improve and achieve their goals. So if you want to get involved in our exciting improvement journey please get in touch via fb or contact head coach Dai Humphreys

Wednesday 20th January 2021
I thought I would do a bit of a round up as to what has happened over the passed year those with a good enough memory will remember the last game played at the Strawberry Grounds was on the 7th March against Upper Eden.
Then we were hit with the Pandemic and lots of rules and regulations to follow depending what tier we were in. Thankfully the Rules and the weather allowed us to enjoy food and drinks outside until the weather and the rules changed.
We were given fixtures for the 2020 -
Arrangements were made to progress a limited Bonfire night, but this was rapidly given the no go.
Things seemed to be getting better until a full lock down was forced on the UK just after Christmas.
You will have noticed that the Six nations Forecast Draw whish we have held for years, had to be abandoned, with a lot of people not working, or on Furlough we were unsure who could sell the tickets or even those available to purchase them.
What next: Who knows, we may even see the return to using the grounds once again during the Summer, but I don’t think we will be given the go ahead for grass roots till at least the start of the 21 -
