Hungry Horse to go Euros mad

A CITY pub is set to go football crazy in an attempt to cheer England all the way to Euro 2012 glory.

The Hungry Horse in Broughton will be showing every minute of Roy Hodgson’s sides efforts to lift the European Championship - as well as all the other matches from the summer tournament.

Euro 2012, which is being jointly hosted by Poland and Ukraine, is due to kick-off on Friday, June 8 and the family-friendly pub will be screening the first game of the event between Poland and Greece at 5pm.

Attention is then bound to turn to England’s opener against France at 5pm on Monday, June 11.

And everyone at the restaurant is hoping to see England skipper Steven Gerrard lifting the trophy in the final at the Olympic Stadium in Kiev on Sunday, July 1. That game, starting at 7.45pm, will - of course - be shown live at The Hungry Horse.

The popular pub was recently named as the best family restaurant in Milton Keynes at the inaugural Milton Keynes Food & Leisure Awards.

It beat off competition from the likes of the Harvester, Frankie & Benny’s and Wagamama to lift the award.

General Manager Mark Fitzsimon said: “We can’t wait for the Euros to get underway and we hope to see lots of people here to cheer on England.

“The bunting will be going up and it should be a great tournament.

“We’ll be showing all the games live so whatever country you are supporting - or if you just love football - this will be the place to be, families are welcome”

“The Hungry Horse is perfect for all the family, so we’re hoping to see lots of kids here cheering for the boys as well.”

The Hungry Horse will also be donating a tin of beans to Milton Keynes charity The Food Bank for every goal scored during the tournament.

The Food Bank provides city people in economic difficulty with essential food supplies at the time when they need them most, covering the days or sometimes weeks before other parts of the social care infrastructure can come into play.

The Hungry Horse is open from 11am to 11pm between Monday and Thursday, midnight on Fridays and Saturdays and 12noon to 10.30pm on Sundays.
