At time of writing this survey, Everards the current owners of The Millstone are trying to sell the pub to a private buyer who would continue to run it as a pub. This we believe is the best possible outcome for the village.
However, in the event that no private buyer can be found, we are exploring the concept of whether to try to buy the pub and run it as a Community Managed pub under the management of an expert tenant publican. The total cost, including re-structuring spend, is believed to be around £550k.
If you have a view about whether the village should try to buy The Millstone, whether positive or negative, please complete this survey. We need to get a clear understanding of the amount of support there is before we start looking into the details.
Please also give an indication of whether you would be willing to help, and if so, what skills you have which could assist.
