The White Lion is extremely popular with locals and has built up an excellent reputation over the last 18 years with the current licensee. I am looking for an individual or couple who are local to the area and will engage with the community. The successful applicant will need to demonstrate how they will develop this already popular pub and take it to the next level with a well thought out business plan and enthusiasm and charisma to follow it through. Ideally, the pub should provide food once the kitchen is compliant as this is the only pub in the village and would appeal to a wider audience. Experience of running a community pub is desirable but not necessary, what is necessary is the desire and drive to run a friendly and successful community focused pub.
