Thirsty equestrians need not go far this summer with the launch of two new travelling bars.


The Tipsy Goose

Earlier this month H&H announced the launch of the Tipsy Goose, a bar which stands within a 25-year-old trailer, and now an Ifor Williams trailer has also been converted into a bar.

The HB506 model trailer was converted by Decanter Events of Worcestershire and is now ready for weddings and other special occasions.

“We’re booked for several parties and we have a busy summer season ahead,” said Adrian Jones of Decanter Events.

“The bar is perfect for weddings and events as it has its own generator so is completely independent, but it’s fitted with freezers and fridges so we can provide all kids of drinks.

“There are ale pumps within the unit but I suppose it’s more designed for cocktails and spirits. The unit is made up of two parts so for a small event you can serve drinks direct from the trailer but for a larger occasion you can fold out a second bar area externally.

“The whole bar can be set up ready to serve drinks by one person in about half an hour and the kit on-board will allow a capable cocktail waiter or master mixologist to produce every drink imaginable.”

Andrew Reece-Jones, design engineering manager at Ifor Williams Trailers, added: “It never ceases to amaze me the different uses people find for our trailer.

“The HB506 was designed to transport two horses up to 16.2hh — we certainly did not envisage it being used as a mobile bar but it seems it’s also perfect for this purpose.

We’d like to raise a toast to Adrian’s ingenuity.”
