The new tenant has been in touch with the web team again to tell us that they now hope to reopen the Bear on Friday 11th May at 12.00 noon.
They had hoped to be able to reopen it on the 4th but the legal processes involved cannot be rushed.
They went on to say,
I will be announcing some offers on food and drink for the opening day, however these are yet to be decided. Watch the local press for a full advert regarding the reopening.
I have also decided that the downstairs will now have a make over while the pub is closed. Following comments from local people this will include a furniture move around to create a more informal space.
I will keep the village website updated on my vision for the pub and how it can contribute to the local community.
