Haven't been in for years and years. Back in the mid-80s Mrs JD used to own the sandwich shop at the front of Leesons Engineering just up the road. Lunches in The Owl were a real treat back then as they probably still are. So sad to see yet another victim of the single-minded, tunnel-visioned owners' policies. The industry is being killed off at an alarming rate.

Save The Owl Facebook group now has over 1000 members and plan of action to halt the evil empire of Enterprise Inns.https://www.facebook.com/groups/376074885834996/This is a pub which was literally dead when the current management took over. Its now a thriving community pub which raises thousands for charity each year via its Beer and Music festival. Enterprise Inns are doubling the rent, therefore forcing the Howard family out (and no doubt with some hidden agends behind that).Yet again a small family run business is being crushed by a faceless Corporate giant and will probably join the thousands of boarded up pubs. The difference is that in this case its a well run, well used establishment that would be making a profit if managed sensibly by the pub co.Please spread the word and join the facebook campaign and tweet #savetheowl.
