Toppesfield now has a Community Pub, The Green Man

Saturday 15 December 2012

The villagers here have continued their community spirit which started ten years ago when they built a local village shop and post office. One hundred and fifty people have staked money in this venture to purchase the pub from Admiral Taverns. It will continue as a pub to provide a vital local social facility in the village. We wish them success in their venture which we hope will help serve as a potential model for other villages also struggling to keep their local pub. The Landlord, Tony who has been running the pub for a few years continues to run this pub under the new ownership as a tenant to the village rather than the previous owners. This pub runs beer festivals and has a variety of different guest ales.
