News update at Eagan Arms Public House and Merlins Rest
Lee Tomlin and Tracie Munce from Eagan Arms Public House and Merlins Rest have sent some of their staff members on their first trip to Scotland – going to the Fringe Fest and the Highland Games as well as touring Belhaven Brewery and a few Whisky Distilleries. This is the first time they have sent the General Managers to Scotland to see the traditions of the pubs there. They are looking forward to their trip next year to Ireland for them also. Nana Tay Tays Bakery is an extension to the pubs that has been in the works since their first Pasty appeared on their menu. They will sell online very soon and they will be shipped directly to your house or as a gift to a friend. This fall brings the return of Single Malt Scotch Tastings. They will be the first and third Thursdays at Merlins Rest and the second Thursday at Eagan Arms Public House starting in October. In the meantime Lee Tomlin will host a private tasting for a small group.
There will Eagan Arms Private House memberships coming this fall. This membership will offer you 30-50% off food items and that is just the beginning of benefits to holders of this membership. For more information go to www.eaganarms.com and join the mailing list and become the first in the know.
There is new swag – gear – merchandise available at both pubs. People love the Merlins Rest hoodies and now we have 4 color choices. Lee’s favorite is the Nike Air Golf Shirts also in 4 color choices. Tracie’s personal favorite is the green golf shirt for women.
There is a new all female management staff. At Merlins Rest Pub Nichole Munce is leading the pack. Nichole has been in the pubs since the very beginning, first as a server and now as the General Manager. Nichole comes with years of experience in corporate dining and catering expertise. Let her plan your next event. There are two amazing women Andie Gordon (master of the back of the house) and Kelli Daly who run a tight ship all around. These 3 women keep MR running smooth.
At Eagan Arms Public House Chelsey Job is running the crew. Chelsey has been with the pub since 2020 when Eagan Arms Public House opened, even during Covid Chelsey would come in to help on busy nights. Erin Galloway joined our team as a server/bartender. It is Erins’ experience in customer service that keeps the pub customers happy.
