The Grouse Games Competition


The Glorious 12th is nearly upon us. The UK’s 121-day-long shooting season, which starts on 12th August, has been a Great British countryside tradition for centuries and this year, we’re pitching our pubs against each other to celebrate the opening of the season.

The Crown, The Hollow Bottom and The Wheatsheaf are set to race one another to Yorkshire to collect the freshest grouse and rush it back to the Cotswolds for our annual Glorious Twelfth Supper - and they’re going to need your help.

Three teams will be selected to enjoy a two-day break during which you will set off from your team camp and compete in fun challenges as you race up to the North Yorkshire Moors. Test your aim with an afternoon of clay pigeon shooting and indulge in a one night stay and private dinner at The Castle Inn near Harrogate, before racing back to your Lucky Onion camp to present the first brace to our chefs. You'll also win a goodie bag including an MHD watch, a bottle of Nyetimber, a bottle of Copperhead Gin, and a bottle of Bordeaux.

To enter, simply fill in your details below and tell us which of our cosy country pubs is your favourite.
