Half Moon Kirk Merrington
The Half Moon is closed at the moment, but it should proudly service the residents of Kirk Merrington and form part of the three-pub circuit in the village. It is a locals pub and should be at the heart of the community now and for years to come. The licensee should cater for young and old customers alike and be a champion for the local community. A warm and friendly face behind the bar, the licensee will need to provide excellent quality drinks and a small food offer is appropriate, supported by excellent standards and a welcoming environment. They should look to build ties with the local church and school to become a real hub for the village and in doing so will be well supported by the local residents
