Stanhope Arms’ regulars in Brasted are currently attempting to buy the pub from current owners Greene King and run it as a community pub. As part of the process, a short online survey is currently open, to gauge the level of support for the venture and collect views on the kind of pub that people want to see.
At the same time, the community group is looking to raise money to purchase the freehold and getting it ready to open for business through a community share issue. Anyone with an interest in the Stanhope – and with an interest in being a part-owner of a pub! – is welcome to complete the online survey. Anyone wanting more information, including about the share issue, is welcome to email the community group at firstname.lastname@example.org
The Stanhope Arms was part of the original Black Eagle Brewery’s pub estate until the brewery’s closure in 1965
