Saving The Plough – More Than A Pub

The Plough Supporters Steering Group needs you to help us move forward on saving The Plough at Eathorpe for the benefit of the community. Our ultimate aim is to provide a hub where villagers in the area can meet, socialise and generally re-establish what was a fundamental part of rural life. We hope to be able to offer more than a pub, including (for example) a small shop and a cafe which could also attract commuters and tourists using The Fosse.

The next stage for us is to prepare a business plan to help us gain the funding we will need. We need to get a clearerunderstanding from you about the level of support we could hope for and what you might want from having a community pub, in the neighbourhood.

We have drawn up a very short survey which we hope you will complete for us. To complete the survey, just go to the following link:

Before we go, can we leave you with a couple of thoughts?

…did you know that having a pub in your village can increase house prices by up to 20%?

…did you know that having a pub in your village has health benefits? Even regular short walks from your house to the pub offer a small way to getting some exercise!

…did you know that The Three Horseshoes at Princethorpe is currently up for sale so its future too is uncertain? The number of pubs locally is in steep decline.
