Recording the slow, sad death of the British pub
The only pub in a substantial village in the north of the county. I understand there may be plans for a community buy-out.
(My own picture)
The pub is in poor neglect and vastly overpriced. Priced for development. I had a quick look at the outside just over a week ago and without doubt Admiral Taverns are purposefully allowing the building to become an eyesore. Lymestone Brewery have offered to be the tenant if the local community purchased however, they would be paying well over true value as many community groups have. The pub companies just love community purchases.
