A COMMUNITY-owned pub is on the lookout for a new landlord.

The Haseley Plough in Great Haseley, near the M40, wants to recruit a long-term replacement for its previous tenant who left at the end of last year.

The pub was saved by villagers seven years ago after it previous owner, Punch Taverns, decided to close it down.

It has been run for the last six months by local couple Heath and Sasha Harvey who have carried out an extensive £40,000 redevelopment which has seen the pub redecorated and upgraded.

They now want to find an 'ambitious' tenant to take the reins and continue to help the business grow.

The pub is described as offering 'the best of both worlds' in that it boasts beautiful rural surroundings and is located very close to junction 7 of the motorway.

It opens for lunch and dinner from Tuesday until Saturday and for roasts on Sunday and offers a selection of beers and ales and 17 types of gin.

It runs a regular quiz night and steak night as well as other one-off events.

The tenancy comes with a three bedroom, two bathroom accommodation above the pub.

An advert said the pub was 'gradually becoming a destination' due and continues to grow its turnover month by month.
