Participate in the community buyout of The Thorold Arms and you will have assisted the villages of Hougham and Marston, amounting to only 210 households, to buy their pub and shop from a developer. The money is being raised through a community share offer.
The pub is in rural Lincolnshire close to the towns of Grantham and Newark, a mile or so from the A1, and on the Viking Way national footpath. It lies in classic Lincolnshire countryside close to the River Witham. This is prime “let’s go out for a pub meal” territory. There are several highly successful pubs in the area and there is no intrinsic reason for this pub to be any less successful.
The renovations will include an excellent 2 bedroom flat to enable an experienced managing couple to be hired. A friendly face, quality produce and good value will be the key to sustained success. Investors will share in the pub’s success by way of interest payments. These are currently projected in the business plan at 3%.
If you would like further information, the names and contact details of the committee members are in the literature or you can get in touch through the website Contact page. We can post you a printed prospectus and application form – just send us your address.
We look forward to hearing from you and seeing you soon in the pub!
