They knew they wanted to go with Everards, Lisa had worked in Everards pubs all her life, they drank in Everards pubs and Lisa’s sister had been through the process with Everards. So, who they would run a pub with was never in question. They just wanted a small community pub that was drinks led not food led that they could make their home.
“I fell in love with this pub straight away, even though we’d been focusing on another Everards pub, that went out the window when we walked through this door” says Lisa.
Paul with his commercial background knew there was more to pub business than pulling a good pint, “We took advantage of everything that Everards offered us before we took the pub on, including a ‘what’s it like’ night and a ‘try before you buy’ weekend. Everards were very thorough, they really wanted to get to know us and help determine if this was the right choice for all of us."
