Anglers Rest seeks £250,000 to secure future

We’re launching a bid for £250,000 to ensure our survival and future growth! Like many pubs, we face massive challenges.

We lost money last year, but in January new hope emerged with the arrival of John Parsons, who now serves as head chef, and Jo Doyle, our new bar manager.  Together, they have revolutionised our food and drink offer.

We cannot survive on food and drink sales alone

We have big plans to vary our income streams. We’ll develop the building’s upper floors as well as undertake essential maintenance.

Project highlight
  • Visitor Accommodation
  • Staff Housing
  • Community & Function Room  
  • Laundry Facility
Funding efforts         

We received funding from the National Lottery for phase one. Now, we are going for £250,000 from the Community Ownership Fund (COF), and our initial expression of interest has been approved!
