Josiah Chater notes that his 8th Cambridgeshire Rifle Corps met at the Hoop Inn on 14th January:

We sat down to supper at half past 8; had hot and cold meats, pies and pastry and everything proper, with ale and waiters included for 2/6d each. It was a very jolly affair, uncommonly well served. After the captain was gone, I took the chair for about half an hour, then left. I only saw one man a little the worse for the punch, 19 bowls of which the officers put upon the table.
