The Hemingford Arms

New session starting here at this well known music pub on the 4th Friday of every month, starting 23/01/2015 from 9pm. Nice pub, large selection of cask ales including Greene King IPA, Greene King London Glory, Purity UBU and Sharps Doombar plus guest beers.

Music also here on a Saturday an Sunday, best to check with the pub first if that’s a session or not.

But 4th Friday of the month at least - OPEN SESSION. ALL WELCOME.

Normally a session here on a Saturday night these days. Check with pub for other nights.

Emailed the pub - apparently Saturday trad session is 2nd and 4th Saturdays.

Re: The Hemingford Arms

I went there last Saturday to meet some friends which I guess was the 4th of the month but I emailed first and they confirmed the session was on.

Very busy pub. The regular "band" in the alcove by the piano consisted of double bass, banjo , fiddle , accordion, whistle and guitar. Actually maybe some of those were drop-ins like me.

I left my friends to join them for a few tunes, very friendly folk. The crowd thinned enough that we could hear each other better. I had heard the banjo playing some Scottish tunes earlier so felt more comfortable joining in knowing it wasn’t wall to wall Irish

The pub also has a Thai food kitchen operating out of a window in the corner selling very tasty and good value food for consuming in the pub it taking away.

Great pub, great night, worth a visit any time.
