Western Morning News gives pointers for pub success

Saturday's edition of the Western Morning News carried an article, which is the first in a series that the paper is running over forthcoming Saturday editions, about what makes a pub attractive to its local community. The articles are being written in conjunction with local Otter Brewery.

This week's article focused on the George Inn at Brompton Regis and  looked at a couple who had taken over the pub earlier this year. The clear thrust of the message being conveyed was that if you want your pub to be at the heart of the community, you need to engage with it and hear what local people are saying. The article is worth a read -

As Save The Red Lion Campaign progresses one of the things that it will have to do is listen to & speak with the local community if we want to keep the Red Lion at the heart of the village. This approach is one that the Campaign's Steering Committee has firmly in its sights!
