Another Vale pub bites the dust ?

Categories:

27th February 2017

We are very sorry to report that the Hinds Head in Kingston Bagpuize has been sold to a national supermarket chain to be developed as convenience store. Planning application is currently being considered by White Horse District Council. CAMRA is opposed to the sale of any viable village local, and had made representations to the local parish council to list the pub as an Asset of Community Value (ACV). Unfortunately inaction by the parish council seems likely to have deprived the village of yet another pub; the Lamb & Flag in nearby Longworth was closed and slated for redevelopment as a house at the end of last year.

    I read a report that the Hinds Head in Kingston Bagpuize has been sold to a national supermarket chain to be developed as convenience store and although representations were made to the local parish council to list the pub as an Asset of Community Value they did nothing.
    Perhaps the Parish Council would care to say why they have deprived the village of a pub.

    What is the present situation with Hind Head, following Planning Permission for the Crossroads Garage site?

    I raise this because Sainsbury stated “that they would not proceed if the Crossroads site was approved”

    Do you believe Hawthorn Leisure would consider spending some money and re-opening, for the size of the village most certainly requires and should support two public houses?
