No way Enterprise would sell the buildings - one of the few that makes them money I imagine.
Still a large part of how good a pub is is down to the management so can't breathe easy yet!

I presume you meant the tenancy but thought best to check.

Well that's no great loss. The couple who are there at the moment are pretty useless.

I agree... don't think any of the regulars and locals are surprised they lasted little more than a year......

They were always very good to us! Doing us food very late at a reasonable price if we rang ahead.

Unless we're not talking about the wanted here?

Sorry for the confusion ah147 - this post started talking about the Wanted but has moved on to talking about the Red Lion in Litton which is the pub the most recent posts are about.......

Turns out I was slightly misled about the Wanted Inn. They are unlikely to open at the end of this month as they don't get the keys until tomorrow. Apparently Robinson's Brewery stripped everything out so it's going to need some refitting. I guess this may take a while depending on how good a job they want to do. I imagine they'd want to be open by Christmas though so fingers crossed.

Is it re-opening as a free house then? Excellent news if it is. No ridiculous ties with rent and beer to worry about. Probably get decent beer at a sensible price and they'll be able to compete in a difficult market.

It's not open yet but, for the last two days, there have been lights on and vans in the car park. I  guess they'll be trying to open for Christmas.
