Happier-still, the community have run The Gari successfully now for over one year, basically on a simple but effective formula of good beer and convivial conversation. Formal recognition of its 1st birthday will take place on Saturday 6th October, when there will be street food, live music in the garden during the afternoon, and a disco/karaoke in the evening, alongside the usual good stuff! All who like the sound of it but haven't been in to sample it would be more than welcome.

Open evenings only now, but beer quality still good. "Volunteer" bar staff sometimes show their lack of experience, but this community pub deserves continued support. A great little pub.

Happily, trading has been steady through the first quarter or so of trading as a community pub, and feedback from customers has been overwhelmingly positive. The Garibaldi provides an unoriginal and simple offer - a comfortable meeting place for a diverse but agreeable collective of local people, with an accent on good beer and cheer - but one which more people actively treasure now in an era when such features are getting rarer. I genuinely believe those who have tried the pub tend to revisit it as they are the kind of people who value that tradition and realise how close we can come to losing it.

Beer-wise, there tends to be three local offerings and one national on cask, although this can vary. Whilst it's always a challenge to keep sufficient range of styles, brewers, strengths and appearances across only four pumps, Chris does seek to keep a reasonable balance, with the emerging focus being on the 4-5% strength span, with as many dark ales as light appearing in recent months, mostly at the £4 mark - more than we'd like, but relatively normalised in Surrey now. If you have any beers or breweries you'd like to see featured here, always let the bar staff know and it can be considered.

Food is still only something that is in the pipeline prospectively, once the funds can be found to fit out the kitchen to a serviceable standard, but even then it will be a modest part of what happens here. The Gari never majored on grub even in less-lean times, and although it sounds dangerously old-hat, wet sales really do lead the way here comfortably. Chris will organise frequent street food vendors to occupy the forecourt during weekend events, sports matches and so on, and this is proving to be a friendly, workable synergy between one community business and several others. Laurent's Kitchen, Neishe, Fritto & Via, Monteforte and others may be found here in coming weeks - check the roster.

Live music and karaoke events occur every couple of months and these appear to be well-supported. All part of trying to broaden appeal and keep the place in people's minds when they're inclined to get out and about, and maybe wish to eschew the sometimes grimy and grizzly feel of the centre of Redhill!

Lots still to do, with a continuing focus amongst hardworking people to get the garden ready for warmer times ahead. For those reading this who have supported - and will continue to support - this new venture, I'm sure I speak on behalf of all when I thank you for your time (and money!). To those yet to try, hopefully you won't leave it too long.

A more organised and dare we say grand, reopening event is being scheduled for Saturday 7th October! For those yet to come and enjoy what this revived local pub has to offer, do come and give it your onceover. Lots of fellow sociable drinkers have already, and seem not to be disappointed! Final event details still TBA, but be assured that there''ll be plenty to get stuck into.

Well, I shan''t seek to dispute what you say as there is some truth in it of course for many people. But that doesn''t mean a bright, friendly local boozer is entirely irrelevant, and so far the feedback received has been positive, and trade has been pretty steady too, despite our still nascent offering.

Thanks for the good wishes, and if ever you feel like an evening of old-fashioned simple enjoyment free of the tedium of stuff like supermarkets and Wetherspoon''s (in particular, The Sun), then you shall always be welcome in the Gari.
