If you didn’t know it already we are famed for our non-alco mocktails. It’s pleasing enough to have one prepared for you by our staff but how about learning how to make your own? We do workshops so get in touch if you would like to pursue. It’s fun for kids and adults alike.
Tonight a lucky bunch have booked their time and will know how to make their own by the end of the night.

The Brink plays host every now and then to curious others from distant shores elsewhere in the globe. News of The Brink certainly has travelled far and wide. So far this year we have had visitors from Taiwan, Indonesia, the Philippines and China.
Tonight we are welcoming around 70 people from France who are in Liverpool and wanted to check out our Fish ‘n Chips! We’re really not surprised, it’s one of our trademark mains ever since we opened!
WEDNESDAY 11th APRIL (and every second Wednesday), 4pm – 6pm
NVC Workshop (Nonviolent Communications)
Misunderstanding, frustrations, anger, depression and sometimes violence can ensue when we communicate with judgement. NVC transforms the thinking, language and moralistic judgments into one which enriches the relationships you dream of, whilst teaching you how to resolve conflict with ease and get what you want and need without using demands. It teaches us to hear the needs of others too. Ground-breaking techniques pioneered by Marshall B. Rosenberg.
It’s very much worth getting hold of a copy of the book first.
WEDNESDAY 11th APRIL, 6pm - 7.30pm
