Duke aims for early November reopening
The Duke of Wellington is expected to open during the first week in November, landlord Zoe Haydock has told this website. Zoe told us that things are finally taking shape and assuming there are no problems installing the new boiler then the pub should be open week commencing Nov 2.
As previously reported here, Zoe's plans for the Duke involve providing traditional pub fayre, locally sourced and home made as far as possible. The Duke has been closed since June. We'll publish more details about the pub reopening when confirmed.
Meanwhile higher up Main Street, the Old Star has been a popular venue by villagers watching the Rugby World Cup. The final is this weekend.
