Project Time Line

We have ambitious plans which may require time and resources to see them into fruition. The pub has been closed for long enough however,  so rather than wait for everything to be perfect, we have opened our doors as soon as possible.

The time-line below gives an approximate guide to the order in which we shall try to tackle each sub-project and be opening the pub for business. Plans and drawings will be available for viewing in the Angel Inn once available. Please come and have a look. Your support will be appreciated.

Wanting to help in any way?

We did not want to see another British pub, a part of our history, a huge community asset, bite the dust by turning into residential accommodation like so many others.

But to succeed we need to diversify and improve our offering. The outbuildings are dilapidated and will be costly to renovate. No one wants to finance or lend funds to hospitality businesses in the current climate and we are new to the sector, which makes this venture doubly difficult. So, support from the community will be  instrumental in our success.

Please let us know if you are able to assist with securing further funding, able to help with resources, building materials, time and skills or support in any other way. Any contribution, however great or small, will be most appreciated.
