Pub News

A round-up of recently received pub news.

The good:

  • The Fox and Hounds in Barley is reopening on Saturday April 16th as a real-ale friendly freehouse with a close association with the Falstaff Brewery in Derby (see the April/May 2011 Pints of View for more details).
  • The Albert in Hitchin has been sold to a new freeholder and is expected to re-open in May and continue to serve real ale. We wish Frank all the best in his retirement.

The not-so-good:

  • The Black Horse in Brent Pelham closed for business in late March. Let us know if you have more information about the future of this pub!
  • The managers at The Jolly Waggoner in Ardeley have given notice for May 5th, though they may stay on until the owner has found a replacement.
