Villagers in Bidborough are celebrating after it was announced that their local pub is to reopen. The Hare and Hounds closed its doors in March apparently after a hike in rent and rates. However, owners Enterprise Inns said pints will again be pulled at “this well-known and loved pub” from the end of August.
Councillor Julian Stanyer commented: “It’s such a sad sight to see an empty pub in the centre of the village.”
