Why Skeff Cocktails ?

Our award winning cocktails and cocktail makers take their inspiration from the fun and frivolity of Toft’s funfair. For many a year Toft’s brought their funfair to Eyre Square, especially as part of race week. The Skeffington Arms was perfectly placed to take in all of the noise, excitement and fun. The big wheel or Big Dipper as it was known, was usually in the centre surrounded by hurdy-gurdies, chair-o-planes, ghost trains, the wheel of fortune, a merry-go-round, slides, the rifle range, the coconut shy, the carousel with it’s beautiful hand carved hobby horses, swing boats, the helter-skelter, the waltzer, skittles and rides like the octopus. The bumper cars was probably the most popular of them all

Mixed in with the usual funfair rides and stalls was the Wall of Death motorcyclists who passed within inches of each other while going in different directions. The performers who put the hearts in the mouths of every member of the crowd diving from a 50 foot platform into a small tank of water, the top of which was set alight with oil.

At night in particular, there was a great festive atmosphere with lights, fairground music, people calling out the attractions of the various stalls and the screams and whoops of folks having fun.

So while you are here, raise a cocktail to the Toft’s name and their outstanding contribution to the history of entertainment on the square and their well-known generosity
