Today’s Dorset Echo reports that the Draco Pub Company has bought the building and will refurbish it before it re-opens.
The company own three other pubs: Timbrell’s Yard, The White Hart and The Swan. All are in Somerset and have been refurbished to a high standard. Their respective web sites describe them as “pubs first”. Beer is then the first thing mentioned in their descriptions. It will be great to see a return to an “ale led” resurrection of this famous landmark.
