“The Summer Dinner”
Saturday 8 July 2017 at 19:00

Details on how to purchase tickets are at the bottom of this article.

Tickets £30 (3 course dinner with wine) AND after-dinner guest speaker Phil Bennett PLUS rugby memorabilia auction (to raise much needed funds to keep our facilities supporting rugby at all levels!)

"As prolific as a rugby player as he is as an after dinner speaker, hiring Phil Bennett for your dinner is a decision that is sure to prove popular. His eloquent speaker style, attention to detail and passion shines throughout his appearances, and he is certain to enjoy a long and illustrious career as a sports speaker."

This event is going to sell out and in a short time scale! Please ring, email or ask behind the bar at the earliest opportunity!


Welsh Rugby legend Phil Bennett OBE enjoyed an extensively prolific career during his playing days, representing his country and the British and Irish Lions on a number of occasions. A popular rugby speaker and after dinner speaker, Phil Bennett provides an exceptional addition to a whole host of events and occasions.

Plying his trade with Felinfoel, Llanelli and the Barbarians, the powerful fly-half joined the British and Irish Lions on their famous South African tour of 1974 where he recorded the most points within the entire series, helping them to a 3-0 whitewash. Retiring from international rugby in 1978 after a fruitful career which saw him score over 165 points during 29 appearances, Bennett was inducted into the International Rugby hall of fame in 2005, and later, the Welsh Sports Hall of Fame in 2007.

A popular star within his sport, his strong and powerful personality and attitude has contributed to his successes both on the field as a rugby player, and off the field as an eloquent after dinner speaker and rugby speaker. Proving popular at a whole host of events and occasions, Phil Bennett is a sought after sports speaker, elaborating on a truly wonderful professional rugby career.

Get a group or even a table together or come as a singleton...You'll be very welcome!
