In January, the Post reported on the residents’ plans but negotiations were still going on then. Now the Company, run by four members of the group as directors, has agreed a deal for them to become landlords. One of the directors said business was going well for the pub.
He said: “They seem to have had lots of people in and it’s a nice place.
“They have got about six beers on, and there have been various refurbishments.”
The Landlord said: “We have been based in Notts for a few years, but we spent a lot of time running pubs in Cornwall.
“Before this we were running the Griffin, in Plumtree, and then we found out the Earl of Chesterfield Arms was going to be sold.
“We looked around and just fell in love with it – it’s a real community pub and there’s lots we can do with it.
“We find that pubs don’t always do the combination of good food, good ales, and decent service, so we want to provide that.”
