Fifty shades of neigh is proving a big hit for cocktail lovers who are being served up their favourite tipple from a horsebox bar renovated in West Walton.
Nelly’s is a vintage horse trailer refurbished and equipped to serve cocktails, ales, coffee and snacks at major events and celebrations like weddings, birthdays or corporate days.
Derick Chatten, 46, an engineer with RAF Marham and his girlfriend Shelley Brough, 42, teamed up with his former RAF work pal Dean Wood, 55, of West Walton, to come up with the quirky business idea - originally based on a mutual love of going out for a drink or two.
Derick said: “We got the box for £300 from an ebay seller in Norfolk and spent hours lovingly restoring it and making it look special.
“All of our cocktails are based around the horsey theme and the 50 shades of neigh is definitely our best seller at the moment - a mix of vodka, orange and grenadine.”

“Being in the RAF doesn’t give you any idea of how to run a business, so we decided to start small and see how it goes.
“We launched the bar last September and have been to food fairs and weddings since then, which is working really well.
