The Exchequer Gastropub celebrated a wildly successful first year with a party for family, friends, fans and regulars. Owners Peter Rock and Ian Tucker welcomed guests including Kathryn Thomas, Gordon D’Arcy, Peter’s father Dickie Rock, Paddy Cullivan, Aoibhin Garrihy and members of the Ireland rugby squad amongst others.
Kathryn welcomed the guests and talked about the reasons that The Exchequer quickly became a favourite haunt for her and many others, before joining Peter and Ian to blow out the candle on the birthday cake.
Thanking her, Ian announced that in recognition of Kathryn's recent climb of Mount Kilimanjaro to raise funds for Our Lady's Children’s Hospital Crumlin, The Exchequer had designed a new cocktail for their menu, named 'Kathryn's Peaks' and €2 from every one sold would be donated to her charity.
