    Default Pub up For Sale

    I'm not surprised, The Fox has struggled for years (mostly due to bad management): http://www.stratford-herald.com/1011...ox-loxley.html

    The problem here is Enterprise Inns (or whatever they call themselves these days!) Enterprise are only interested in milking gullible licencees for their life savings. They have no interest whatsoever of providing pubs that locals want.
    Of course it'll fit, you just need a bigger hammer.

    The New Inn in Norton Lindsay seems to be thriving now it's owned by the villagers, so could be a viable option for The Fox.

    The village has managed to raise the cash; I hope they do well in their venture: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-englan...shire-51152232

    I wish them well, but truthfully fear for them. Enterprise are not good people to work with.

    I just hope they've shed all ties to EI.

    Hope so. Enterprise Inns have had a bad reputation for years.

    I wish them well, it's a great idea if EI keeps their fingers out of the pie. I am concerned, however about the current talk of a trade off between pubs and schools that this might prove a hurdle if that trade off goes ahead unless it can be circumnavigated by the cafe' and the community growing space at the rear.
    Cool
