The day we've been waiting for...

We are delighted to announce that

The Boot Inn will re-open lunchtime tomorrow,

Thursday 29th August at 12 o'clock.

The door will soon be open!


Our Landlords, Chris and Hollie, have now assumed the responsibility for running our village pub and over the coming weeks will be setting up their food offering and gradually building upon the improvements we have initially made to the premises.

The refurbishment has been a mammoth task and would not have been possible without the wonderful support and contribution of you all.

In due course, when the dust has settled, literally, we will arrange with Chris and Hollie a suitable event to celebrate this success and to thank all those who have helped.

In the meantime, spread the news - but try not to come in all at once!

Saying thank you

Part of our future plan for the Boot Inn is to have an IT Hub Café for members of the community to use for accessing online services and training, should they not be able to at home.

We are delighted to report and thank the ‘Pub is a Hub’ organisation for donating a significant grant amount to make this a reality.

Our IT Hub Café would not have been possible without the advice and support of Pub is the Hub, the rural and community pubs organisation.

A Major Step Forward

We are delighted to report that we have agreed terms to appoint Chris and Hollie Thorpe as our tenants for The Boot Inn.

Chris, as most of you will recall, managed The Boot for the last few years before it was run down and ultimately closed by its former owner. Indeed both he and Hollie worked at the pub from an early age and since leaving have gained further valuable experience at The Church in Ludlow.

They are both excited at the opportunity and entirely committed to helping us create a truly outstanding village community pub. They will have a hand in the final stages of the refurbishment and are already planning the setting up of their business.

Appointing the right tenants was always going to be critical to achieving the aims of our project and we are very confident that Chris and Hollie are the best possible choice.

We are sure you will want to join us in wishing them every success in their new venture.
